    I have been awake many hours over the the last few months pondering many things 💛 ..we are so much more than flesh & bone or the measure of our accomplishments, defeats, joy & heartache - we are the sum of all our life experiences, memories made and many pieces of all who have passed through our lives & left an imprint, connections made that bring us all together in human kind...we are all a global family connected through time and space. When I think of Angie ...I remember Her falling in the fire at moonshine lake & those poor little bandaged hands. Brenda telling her she had secured a job for her at A&W ...wearing the Root Bear costume and her horror at the thought😮 Endless carefree summers at Gull Lake Who could forget Silver Valley and Blueberry mountain- Billy ! Time spent at Pat & Dennis Pegg farm - a place where she truly was happy! When she threatened to quit school & Glo informed her that "rent" would be due that afternoon..not one to be threatened with a challenge Angie arrived home that afternoon with fulltime job! And most likely $$cash in hand! Being present for the birth of Josh Mckenzie while you tried to choke me! Her tenacity & determination! When she packed up to move to Red Deer to attend Beauty school with a 2yr old Josh in tow & how she excelled there- with the exception of that one bad home perm she gave me ! Our parents,mine & Brenda's pride as we attended her graduation 💜 The decision to upgrade & attend college at Grant McEwan to become an Educational Assistant - soon found us on the phone long distance from there to the Island writing school papers. Struggle No on is without it - and our "people" are oftentimes ill prepared to understand., sometimes feeling helpless & hopeless without the resources to help in others dark times. Paths forever altered & hurts not healed. New beginnings, love & acceptance. Happy Birthdays and time spent. Over the last 2 yrs Angie and I had time to talk, check in on each other- laugh at shared memories and form new bonds that brought us much joy 😂 . It was crushing to hear her fear as she told me of her cancer diagnosis after we had had such a perfect visit just a few months before & such laughter ! I'm forever grateful for that day ! And the time she was able to spend with me in December- where we layed together and cried for the unfairness of it all ! I love YOU ! Thank you for introducing Jodi Blanchard into my life and others - how fortunate you & us are to have a friendship like no one other than her could offer- I simply have no words to describe my feelings of admiration to this woman. Her only selfless drive and determination to love you & offer comfort in all your times & hours of need. Our cousins Nicole ILeen Sedore & Dixie Hannan for the unconditional ❤ love ! Nikki - thank you for allowing me a final call & whispered "I love you's" I have a memory of my sisters and I in matching pink checked outfits that my mom sewed for us - Angie is about 2 yrs old blond & with the biggest bluest eyes you ever saw ! Angelic really & I cannot get it out of my head - I just keep seeing it .. 💙 maybe because of its innocence - so today and it the difficult days to follow I will hold it in focus and hold on tight.

    Ang was a spitfire. Was a good friend to me. I have fond memories from being line cooks together and I was so happy to reconnect years later . Having her as a friend for the last 10 years or so was a gift to me. I loved her so I was glad to get a chance to say "catch ya on the flip side" Take care Ang. God bless

    Angie, you were a force in this battle of life. I was happy to reconnect with you when we moved back to GP. My memories of you in your childhood were ones of, this girl can do anything and of course, the cutest girl, always laughing and running! Rest easy now, there'll be no more pain. Love will be close.

    Angie was a very strong woman! She also had a great sense of humour. I was glad to know her for a short time.
