    I am so very sorry to hear about Angie. I send all of my love to her family. I have so many memories of her I will cherish. In my younger years she was there for me through some tough times and she was gifted at guiding people, having an open heart and listening ear. She was such a great friend and a good person. May your family find strength and understanding during this difficult time.
    I believe Angie has transcended to an awesome place, will forever remain in your heart and I hope somehow you find some comfort in knowing that.
    Love, Serena
