I worked with Angela and she has definitely been a treasured friend since then. i I used to call her Angelina and I loved her like a sister. I remember how my Mom would send grilled cheese sandwiches to her for lunch! Angie would put in her request and my Mom would send it right away! She was like family and we love and miss her. I miss singing and dancing with her at work and going to the mall to have lunch with her. Long after we were no longer working together we continued to have lunch and text and phone each other. I miss her so much and wish her family nothing but treasured memories.

I remember Angela as Tyler's beautiful mother- she was an incredible person. Words cannot describe her strength and the love she had for her son. I won't ever forget her postiveness, and fun prospective on life.

Angela was beautiful,inside and out (a young Cindy Crawford look-alike is the way I will always remember her).She was the bravest person I know. Truly an amazing person and an inspiration to all. How lucky I am to have been able to call her my family.

Angela worked at my parents Subway around 1994 in Holden, MA. She was such a bright light having her there-my parents adored her immensely! We all did!
Thanks to Facebook for letting me get back in touch with her. She was a beautiful angel.
May God bless her and everyone who knew and loved her during this difficult time and always:heart:
