special tributes to my father - page #7

I shed a tear as I read about Mr. Agoglia. I now reside in Richmond, VA, but my roots are in Brooklyn, NY. I remember your family very well. You guys opened your home to many of the Christian Marine Cadets. Thank you for tithing your time, talent, and treasure to us. I remember when your father purchased the go-cart for you guys and you let everyone at the farm take turns driving it. I also remember coming to your home on many occasions with Captain Russell and being welcomed with open arms no matter what time it was. Thank you for sharing your father with us. Many of us were young but we all knew that Mr. Agoglia played an important part in supporting Brownsville Bible Mission. Thank you for the many Christmas gifts your church gave us. For some of those kids, it was the only gifts they would receive that year. May God bless your family richly.
