  1. Dear Judith, Brian, Lana, Bradley and Jacque – so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Agnes was such a great lady, loved her enthusiasm for life, her great sense of humour and her kindness to others. She was one of mom’s best friends and visited mom often in the VPL and Personal Care. She was also very humble about her great talent with watercolors and Betty and I enjoyed seeing any of her new pieces when we took mom over for a visit. She will be surely missed by all. We extend our sincere condolences to all the family and will keep you in our thoughts. Sincerely Ray and Betty Howell, Maple Ridge BC.
