My Mom, i have so very many memories of my life with my mom. What stays in my mind and heart more so is her ability to make you smile. My chicky chick was my life and world for almost two years. She taught me more about life and about what I deserve and how much she loves me. Knowing how many lives she touched has made me more proud of the incredible woman she was(is). No regrets dear mother, just sadness of not having you here with me..........Watch over all of us, we need it. Hug daddy and miss me as I miss you...............

Aunt Angel will always be in my heart. She was a caring godmother and aunt who knew how to comfort, praise, and advise without being judgmental. My earliest memories are of her babysitting for my sister Connie and me when my mom was delivering baby Ria. Aunt Angel made every day special-from teaching us how to make soap sculptures from Ivory Flakes to showing us how to crochet. I have so many wonderful memories and keepsakes to remind me of how lucky I am to have had Aunt Angel in my life.

We all have so many memories of Aunt Angel. I like to remember Aunt Angel with Uncle Tom as my Godparents they were a great team. Always in my eyes in love, as well as having the most respect for each other. Together they raised many children besides their own. They taught us unconditional love, always fair but maybe with a different opinion then ours, which was always right. I could turn to Aunt Angel for anything, her wisdom was just what I needed at times of conflict. Aunt Angel helped me put into perspective what was important in life . Her view was as important to me as my parents. Sometimes you could say things to her that I might not have been able to say to my Mom, but she always did agree with her, That's how sisters are. Oh Godmother I am missing you so much. Thank you for all of your hard work and sacrifices . In your lifetime you have touched and made a difference in countless numbers of people. Godmother I hope that I can give back as much love and wisdom as you gave to all. You are the best role model a God child could have. Oh I am missing you so much, you will always be in my heart. xoxoxxoxo,
With all my heart and soul love you forever rest in peace ,

Aunt Angel was the Aunt that you knew was always there for you ...Her home was always open to provide us with her sage wisdom ,kind words and comfort. .. Her thoughtfulness , caring nature, and the glue that kept the family together was expressed in her ever popular christmas cookies that she made for every loved one for the past 60 plus years... She was a special women that was a rock in our family, she kept family history near and dear to her and shared with us all, she kept us laughing at times when all we wanted to do was cry and she made everyone feel special and cared for... Aunt Angel I will miss your smile, unique expressions, wonderful sense of humor, trademark widows peak and especially your umbrella of love ... Rest In Peace my dear Aunt you will never be forgotten...

Aunt Angel was a huge part of my life, not just as a child but as a grown up as well. Aunt Angel and Rosa were two of the first people to call and then come to my house on one of the worst days of my life. I never forgot that kindness. She was always loving, warm and open. I remember so many things, and I am truly saddened by her passing. She will always be in my heart.
