You have been family for over 30 years. It was awesome to be stationed in Jacksonville and seeing you again. We all had a lot of fun with the parties that we used to have at our apartment.
You are loved and will be missed. I think about my sickness when you were there praying for me and the following week you were gone.
Rest in Peace, beautiful.

My heart is so heavy at the passing of my dear sweet cousin. I can remember looking forward to her and her family's visits to Louisiana when we were little girls. I missed her when she left then but I knew she would be alright because she was with her earthly father. I am missing her now but I know she IS alright because she is with her heavenly Father … in fact both her Fathers. Ann, Allison, and Glen, know without the shadow of a doubt that Angela loved you with her whole heart; I heard it in her voice when she spoke of you. May God's blessings be upon you always, especially during this time of sorrow. Weeping endures for a night, but I encourage you to press your way through
because joy comes in the morning. We love you and we are here for you.

To Angela
I love you. I miss you
My heart is at war
I know that you're home now
Across that beautiful shore

But my heart aches for your presence
To bask in your beautiful smile
To hear that wonderful laugh
To see that original style

I know He is sovereign
That it was meant to be
But my heart still screams
“Why did you take her from me!”

But, I will see you one day
On that beautiful shore
And we will never part again
We'll be together, forever more

Ms. Alice and family, I offer my condolences to you. I was very BLESSED to have known Angela for she was the best supervisor ever... Her smile and her sweet spirit was captivating. Although we love her and will miss her, The Lord loves her more and needed one more Angel to spread his joy....

May God continue to strengthen you...
