Condolences to all of Angie’s loving family. I was not able to make the services but my prayers are with her and the family.
Angie was always smiling and willing to share it with everyone. She and Her brother were so patient with us growing up in West Tampa and always answered our questions about the chickens and activities in their family store back in the day. After all...we’re all “cugini” (cousins). It still puts a smile on my heart to think of those days.
She was a beautiful person and her memories will live on . God bless her and may she Rest In Peace.
Much love, Josie ,one of the twins, as Angie like to say.❤️

We will always remember Angie for her wonderful smile and her sweet and soft spoken personality. We were friends for many years when Arnold and I practiced together in Brandon. We send out prayers and sympathy to each of you and even though we won't be there in person we will be with you in thought and prayer.
