Aunt Aggie was always a good, fun person to be with. The Van Erp Family Reunions are the most recent example of how she exuded joy and would get everyone to have some fun. Way back memories of spending time with the Zawilinski's growing up, we "New York" Van Erp's always visited them in Cass City when we returned to Michigan. She regularly reached out to us, her brother's and good friend's children, after the passing of our parents. Big Love for Aunt Aggie and a big hole in my heart.

We are Dorothy's neighbor and have always enjoyed the friendship of both lovely ladies. Aggie will be missed for her friendliness, kind ways and just being a friend. We will miss her, but hope to see both Dorothy and Aggie in the future.
