My dearest Angela you are such a beautiful woman on the inside and out. You were the first person who gave me a real chance at getting my life back on track. You saw some hope in me even when I didn't see it myself. You were always there to listen and talk me through difficult situations and never giving up on me. You always lit up when you talked about your precious children and were an amazing mother. You will be dearly missed my friend. I love you

I will miss that huge heart of yours, and your crazy compassionate personality in always being there, or getting right back to us, when we needed you. You could see things in a different spiritual way sometimes, and helped us to understand it. And your heart was Ryan and your kids. My heart goes out to them, and may God in his infinite mercy, grant them peace, as they will need all our support inthe days to come. Love ya, Amelia
