Agnes’ husband of 45 years, Mike, will be at the race to celebrate and remember his wife, who died of metastatic breast cancer last year.
In 2022, the race is named after Agnes Karmol. Her sign on Sunday’s race would have said 11 years.
Agnes’ prized gardens are something special, her husband Mike said.
“There are the hanging baskets,” he said There’s eight of them in the backyard. There are six of them back by the deck. They get daisies.”
The veggies are overflowing. The flowers are bursting with color. The garden itself is bright and beautiful, just like Agnes, whose special touch made the garden what it is.
But, she wasn’t there to tend to the garden in the spring of 2022.
Agnes died of metastatic breast cancer last year. Mike, her husband of 45 years, made sure her gardens were just how she liked them this year.
