My childhood is full of Aunt Angie (And Uncle Jim). I use to love the pictures of Angie’s trips and laughed at her stories. I feel like a chapter has been completed and now we share a legacy left behind for us all to share. My love to my cousins as you let go and remember.

Angie and my mom were great friends and were also next-door neighbors.
I feel blessed to of grown up next door to the Watson family and enjoyed many good times as another "one of the kids"!
I considered Angie to be my second mother.
There is now another guest welcomed at the Golden Street Party. It's truly a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!❤🦋🌌

There are so many memories of spending time at Aunt Angie's house playing with the cousins and eating her good cooking. I know she is in heaven with so many other family members. Teaching some of them to dance!!

May the Lord be with the family. Love each of you.
