I visited with Angela often while visiting another friend at Lima Convalescent Home. Her memory was amazing as she recanted the years her family came to the U.S. We enjoyed sharing thoughts on our favorite sports teams as well. I will miss seeing her with her pretty painted fingernails and colorful aprons she often wore. She was so friendly and I feel honored to have come to know her a little through our visits.
