She loved being with her friends, it didn't matter what she was doing as long as she was surrounded by people she loved and loved her. She was always up for new things, and was such a go getter and had such an amazing outgoing personality. It didn't matter who you were, if she knew you or not, before you left her sight you would know her and she would know you. She didn't believe in strangers, just unmet people looking for a new friend. 

Angie gave birth to 2 great children, a boy and a girl, and every ounce of love went to those kids before anyone else her kids came first in her life, before she ate her kids ate, before she slept her kids would sleep. She was the worlds most amazing mother, but being human she did make mistakes but never to bad she couldn't make her amends she always made sure she was on good terms with everyone.

"Thank you to everyone who played a role in my Moms life in a positive way. She loved with all her heart and gave all she had to give. So thank you, I will forever be grateful". "Mom, I still see your face before me, your voice I long to hear.. I miss and love you dearly, God knows, I wish you were here. Tears fall freely from my eyes, like a river filled with grief. My only comfort now, is that from pain you found relief. Missing you Mommy".
