Dear Family and Friends of Angela,

As current president of the Ocean City Lady Knights Auxiliary, I want you to know what a wonderful friend and inspiration Angie was to so many of us.  She never failed to give me encouragement in so many different ways.  Angie would lead the rosary at Mass on Wednesdays and when she was away, she asked me to lead in her place.  I was always honored to do this.  She was also a frequent purchaser of religious articles at the the gift shop at St. Luke's when I managed it. We also enjoyed being birthday buddies, as her birthday was a couple of days before mine.  I'm sure she always found a common ground with everyone as she was that type of individual who witnessed as a true Christian Lady.  We will all miss her immensely, but she will always be in our hearts and often in our thoughts and prayers.  May God bless all of you.  Dee Matthews

I am sure gonna miss my best friend Angie, she was my BINGO partner!  We love to go out to eat and play bingo.  Lombardi's was her favorite spot in Ocean City.  I will miss talking and texting her.  I know she is in a better place and no more pain.  I am glad God brought her in my life.  Candy (my dog) will miss her too.  Until we meet again I love you Angie.

Love Debbie Sautter
