    Family and Friends of James Albert Agnew, Sr., May God comfort and support you in the time of your loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Jim was a dear friend, classmate and inspiration to all who knew him, I will never forget his smile and his wonderful sense of humor. "Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14: 1 -3 May God Bless and Keep You, Lou Slautterback Baldwin High School 1963
