"Aunt Angie was a loving and graceful soul. She was a wonderful aunt, always kind and considerate. Saintly is a small word with deep meaning. Aunt Angie was saintly. May she rest in peace."

"Angie would pass Polly and me each evening after dinner as we were headed back to our apartment. She was always urging me to take good care of Polly. She wanted us to be happy. It was a delight to have her give me advice as we wished each other well. I already miss our exchanges. I will remember her advice."
