I remember my wife telling me how awesome Angie was and how lucky we are to have met such nice people! Having met a few of her outstanding daughters, we felt like they were a great environment for our daughter to be babysat, hoping she would experience the best possible role models a young girl could have. I recall my wife saying how she hopes our kids look at her the way Angies do. I spoke more with Marty than Angie when we met and I looked forwards to seeing Nanaland in person and getting to speak with the Amazing Angie! I am comforted in the fact that her legacy shines brightly through her daughters and husband. Peace, you can rest knowing your daughters continue your legacy.🧬

We are deeply sadden by the loss of Angie. She was a wonderful and kind friend. We were fortunate and blessed to have the opportunity to know Angie in Saudi and to continue that friendship here in Louisiana. We will treasure the many memories and adventures spent with her and her loving family. May god give you comfort and help heal the pain of her loss. Angie will be greatly missed.

I know I haven’t seen you in a while, but I’ll never forget all the summers I spent with you when we were kids. I remember all the times we danced, rolled down the stairs, rode bikes in your neighborhood, and got into trouble. I’ll never forget those days. You were like my big sister when we were growing up. I always wanted to be just like you. Now, my heart is so very broken knowing that you are gone. You were just too young. I know you are with your dad and meemee, so I know you are ok. I am so blessed to have been your cousin. Wish we would have stayed in touch, but we all grow up. You have a beautiful family and they will miss you dearly just like everyone else. Rest In Peace Angie.

Holly and I are so sorry for your loss Marty. We will always remember how welcoming you guys were to us when we first attended River Region Fellowship. We had never experienced such love from strangers and Angie was one who really stuck out to me. We remember the times you guys had us over for lunch and fellowship. Very good times. She was a very special lady and great example of true Christianity. That applies to both of you

I remember when Angie was just a little girl she got lost in some wooded area near her house. She said she was looking for her little brother (Lonny) to give him something. She got turned around and ended up lost in the woods. She stayed lost all day and into the night. There were police, helicopters, search dogs, and everyone for miles looking for her. She was finally found next to a tree. She was so tired. Her Dad and a cop found her before they released the dogs. She was all over the news. That was and is a very brave girl. She was so eaten up by mosquitoes and stickers all over her feet. And I’ll never forget her little jumpsuit she was wearing. It was red. And she was and always so thoughtful and generous. She would go to the end of the earth to help someone and anyone. She is gonna be so tremendously missed. I have not seen her lately but keeping in touch with her mom on all their news. Angie I know you were loved and happy. We all are so sad loosing you. Tell maw maw (my mom) we miss her so much also. I love you 😘❤️💕
