    Angela and I went to high school and graduated together. Her smile would light up any room. I am not sure we ever had a conversation that existed without us laughing. She was a very special friend. She was loved by everyone who met her. I know she is now making heaven an even brighter place with her beautiful smile and her sense of humor. May God comfort you all.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Angela and I have been friends since our teenage years. We had so many good times running around together. Although we drifted apart in adulthood with marriage and kids, she will always have a special place in my heart. She was always so kind and had such a big heart. May God comfort you during this difficult journey.

    I graduated from high school with Angela, but we didn’t socialize a lot then. Several years ago by chance and recommendation by a mutual friend I called for an appointment to get a hair cut not knowing who “Angela” was. I am so glad we reconnected after many years. She was a wonderful young woman so full of life and love for her friends and family. I have kept all of you in my prayers throughout her battle and will continue to pray for you during this difficult time. Having lost an aunt to cancer just over a year ago I somewhat understand your situation as my aunt was like my second mom and sometimes sister. I pray that God surrounds you with peace and comfort at this time.

    I am very sad today to learn of Angela’s passing. I knew her for only a short while (as one of her clients), but her great love for life and for her family was obvious to everyone around her. I specifically remember her excitement over her kids (always!), her husband Ronnie, and her brother’s visit before his recent tour of duty. Your family is in our hearts and prayers.

    It was such a blessing to know Angela. Although I haven’t had contact with her since high school, I remember the great times we shared as good friends. The fun and cutting up that we did when we just hung out or was with other friends. She was always a joy to have around. I can always remember her smiling. She was always in my thoughts and prayers as I knew what she was going through. God bless the family. She will be deeply missed. Sad loss but she suffers no more.

    My sincere condolences to everyone that loves Angela. I remember her as the cutest and happiest young woman back when she worked at Tulsa. Her hair was blonde then and not a curl was ever out of place 🙂 I couldn’t help but smile when I’d see her sweet, smiling face. Find comfort knowing God has welcomed her home with outstretched arms. If possible, she is even more beautiful now and full of the love everyone has for her. Until we meet again….Blessings, Crystal Casey

    To the family of Angela, I give my deepest sympathy and prayers of comfort to you. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Angela at Tulsa Dental while working in the x-tip room. I also had the pleasure of being her neighbor on W. Oakland Ave. down on the end of the building from her shop. Any time I would drop in to say “Hi” she always had a bright smile for me that said “hey how you doing”?. I will continuously be praying for her husband children and family, that you will be embraced in the comforting arms of the Lord through this time of loss. God be with you and if I can be of any service please let me know. Yours in Christ, Phedelma Turner 423-676-1692 [email protected]
