Aggie was truly one of a kind. I may not have been blood but she made me feel more then that and treated me like I was one of her own Grandsons and I without a doubt thought of her as my own Grandmother and loved her as such.
In the 19+ years that I have been apart of her family have truly been great and full of laughter at every dinner table. She truly was the matriarch and she will be missed by everyone. Heres a chocolate cupcake for you Aggie

My mother was the most selfless person I have ever known. She loved her children unconditionally , adored her grandchildren , great-grandchildren and great-great granddaughter . She endured a pain beyond compare , the loss of a child . Through all of her heartache her strength was unshakable .
My mother is finally at peace with her beloved son , her angel , David Gregory .
We will miss you mom .
Gone but forever in our hearts .

Aggie, you are one sweetest, most genuine people I know. You lived so selflessly every day. Life is going to be so different without you here. I love you so much and I am going to miss you more than you know. I am so unbelievably lucky to have been loved by you. xoxo Tinkerbell

Nanny Aggie you were truly the core of your family. I will miss my Aggieisms and stories and just the energy and happiness that being around you brought. They don't make them like you anymore and I'm so thankful to have been introduced to your family over the past 10 years. I pray you are at peace and reunited with your son again. Love and light to all the hearts that are broken tonight

Very fortunate to have her as my Mother....she taught me to read (obituaries first), came to all my football games and sent me a letter every day I was in Vietnam. The most important thing she taught me was ,always tell the truth. Always there for her family but never in the way. Will miss her everyday. God bless her soul.
Her son,
Michael Casey
