Although I was your Aunt for a short time, my heart is hurting right now. Rest in peace Angela and Joey. May the Lord provide strength and comfort during this difficult time. -Julie Nasserjah
I can't express how deeply saddened I am about your loss. No words can ever take away the pain and suffering your fault is going through. While I knew Angela for a brief time it was very obvious that she was a devoted mother and wife. I will forever miss hearing her call for her mother at work when they'd be joking around with each other. Charlotte and Ray, you raised a tremendous Daughter who always put others first. To her husband and children. It was very well known how much she loved all of you. Always boasting of her children's successes in anything they put their minds to and how she was one of the few to have married her high school sweetheart. I hope and pray that God's love will help you all through this terrible time. -Robert Raymond
