My sweet friend 'Angel'

My sweet friend Angel

On June 11th, Angel was diagnosed with terminal cancer. They only gave her a few days, but she fought with everything she had and lived another month. I was amazed at how strong and good spirited she was. Her beautiful children and family stood by her side every second. I was so happy to have the chance to visit her many times when she was in the hospital. Angel is the one in the blue and yellow jacket smiling. She had a beautiful smile and a beautiful heart. She was a nurse and cared for many people through her time. She also cared for my father n law when he was sick. She talked with me about what a wonderful man he was. I am so thankful to have known such a wonderful person. We had many memories together as growing up in our teens. Angel, we will miss you and love you always. Thanks for being such a special friend. I will see you someday.

Dear Stephanie,

What a beautiful tribute to your friend. I am so truly sorry your friend passed away. It is never easy to lose someone dear to you. But one thing you can be sure of is that she is no longer suffering and she is happy and smiling down at you. I even believe that you will see her someday in heaven. Cancer is a terrible disease,but let's keep the faith that one day they will find a cure.

Sorry to know about your dear friend. It's not easy when someone dear to you passed away so suddenly. But I think your friend will be happy knowing that you miss her and will always love her.

I am so sorry you lost your beautiful friend, Angel. It's so difficult not to be able to talk to someone or see their face or especially, in my opinion, to hear their voice again. At least it is a little comforting to know that the people who have gone before us are always in our hearts and memories.
hugs, Sherry
