Hi, this is Marge again. I got cut off before I could express my sympathy (and proofread the message!). I just want too say what a blessing Aggie was to all of us and that she made the world brighter. I am so sorry for your loss.
Dear Medo family,
My name is Marge Hartleben and I hav know Aggie since she was a patient of mine ar Aspirus hospital, way before she came to Homme home. I also worked as a physical therapist at Homme, and got to know her better there. We became friends, and I would come visit her after Mass on Fridays. We shared a lot, and she loved to watch short videos of my little granddaughter Mavis. I liked to bring her tiny vases of flowers from my garden, especially Lilies of the valley, daffodils, and peonies. (She said I didn’t bring any ants with them. We had some lunches together, sometimes I would get pizza, and Aggie, Ann, Anita, and I would share good conversation and laughs. Sometimes it would be chicken dumpling soup, from the restaurant. Special memories... She would share the joys of her family, and I would share mine. She was so proud of all of you!
I was so touched that she would call me and ask for help in having Father Matt come to anoint her that last Saturday evening, and I am so glad that he did come.
I know you will all miss her terribly, I miss her too, and I am so honored to have been friends with dear Aggie.
Dear Medo Family, We know of your mother's wonderful spirit and zest for life through the stories told to us by our mom, Susan Johnson. Aggie has inspired us in life to be passionate about what we do and look out for one another. We are so lucky she has been a part of the Johnson family and that there are so many wonderful memories that have been, and will continue to be, shared. She is resting in peace and dancing with the Angels now - (say hi to Grandma June, Grandpa Soapy, and Auntie Pud Aggie!). Our heartfelt condolences, Natalie Dillman (Brian-Ryland) & Emma Jacob (Randy - Addy, Kenzie, and Harper)
I am very sorry for your loss. What a great lady she was! She was my grandmother's neighbor and best friend, and I recall many many visits at Aggie's house when I was a child. She was always so pleasant and generous. Peace be with all of you.
Our condolences to the Medo family of our second cousin Aggie. We enjoyed our visits with her at the Homme Home, her knowledge of the family history was most appreciated. Aggie was a great Brewers fan and best not to visit during the game. Sorry for your loss of your mother. Best always. stephen (Skip) and Sandy Jahnke

Dear Bill, Sue, Teresa, Bob, John and Mike, We share in your grief of parting with your mother. She was a dear friend to us. We enjoyed our visits with her at Homme. She has always been so full of life and interested in the well-being of others. We always shared about our respective families. Her strong faith was evident and we so appreciate that she held Norm’s healing in her prayers daily. May you each be blessed with exactly what you need now as you celebrate her life. Our love, Norm and Liz
Dear John and family, I got to know Aggie when my husband was a resident at Homme. We had friends in common in Antigo. I am a knitter and we talked about our projects. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Kathy Boksa
