Angie was like the sister I never had. She was a special person and such a great addition to our family. I didn't know Ken very well until he married Angie. We had such a good time visiting them in Elizabeth. They were a good pair and I'm so glad Ken had her in his life. I'm sure that she is with him now and is a lot better off. She missed him so much. I'll miss her. Love, Lois Balkenbush
