I’m sad to hear about Angela’s passing …. She was a very sweet, little lady with a lot of character! And she always greeted my family with kindness and respect. My condolences to her family.

I have many memories of Mrs. Economy. She was a hard-working, caring wife, mother and always giving of herself to others. I felt like family when I was in her home. My sympathies to my friend Z and her family.

I was so lucky to have Angie as my best friend. We've been close friends for about five years now.
I would go visit with her. Four to five nights a week.
We shared our stories together.
Angie taught me more about Love and Life in the past few years. Than I had learned in a Lifetime.
She told me hundreds of stories about growing up in Romania.
And shared with me the stories that her Romanian Grandmother, her Ya Ya, shared with her.
I cherish every story that she told me.
I would listen carefully. And learned so many Life Lessons from her.
She helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life.
She set my ex boyfriend straight. And spared me so much pain. We used to laugh about it later on. Because if Angie loved you. She'd go to the ends of the earth to protect and guide you to the right path.
I took hundreds of videos and pictures of her. So I have so many wonderful ways to remember her.
I'm at a tremendous loss without her.
She told me how she would snuggle up with her girlfriends when she was young.
So we would do the same thing.
Snuggle up on the couch while I listened with fascination over every word she spoke.
There's an extra bright star ⭐ Shining in the night sky now. Look out your window. You should be able to see it.
That Shining Star in the beautiful night sky is Angie.
Watching over all of us that loved her the way that I did.
You will be missed here. You touched so many many lives of the people that you met along your Life Journey.
My heart is with you...
