Angel was an inspiration to all who knew her with her continual strength, love, kindness and generosity. She was always soft spoken, never complaining and always there for anyone in need.
Her strength was amazing throughout all her struggles with cancer. She always had a cheerful smile and love to show all. Angel brought a calmness and peace to everyone.
She gave her dogs, Samantha and Sneakers, tremendous love and care always and they in return gave her the same love. Their companionship was a wonderful comfort to her.

She was our “Angel” here on earth and is now an “Angel” with our Lord in Heaven. She will be greatly missed, but will always be in the hearts of everyone who knew her. When we think of her beautiful smile and cheerfulness, we will always know she is in our hearts and being our “Angel” from above.
