Please accept my condolences and I'm praying that the Good Lord in Heaven bless and comfort the family during this time of great loss to the Runyon family. My heart goes out to you all, to Agnes, a great lady, to Vester & Lori, Rhonda, Shawn, Clayton & Judy, Sandy, Rick & Loretta and to all the grandkids and great-grandkids, etc. This is a terrible loss to you all but please take comfort in the thought that June is in a far better place and they'll be a great family reunion in Heaven one day. God bless you all.
