Angela was a dear friend of mine since 1989. She was a talented, dedicated, wonderful woman whose greatest gift was love. She truly cared about others. She would literally give you the shirt off her back, if she felt you needed it. She also was a tremendous witness, as her unconditional love for people was steady, obvious, generous, and unselfish. She gave of herself to those in need, not expecting to receive in return. She was a faithful, happy, Spirit-filled witness, and she had an impact on everyone she’d meet, whether a biker or shop owner or elderly invalid.
The well-known story about “she made it easy for us to be good” is what best depicts Angela’s life.
Not only was she a dedicated missionary, faithful helper and secretary, and loving friend, but she also was funny, bubbly, organized, spontaneous, youthful, communicative, free-spirited, pretty, and loyal.
My nickname for her was “Pretty Woman,” and hers for me was “Root-beer Eyes.” I know she’s prettier than ever now, safe and happy in Heaven. And even though my root-beer eyes cry as I write this, I rejoice in my heart, knowing that she’s with our wonderful Jesus, and He does all things well.
