Eternal Hills Funeral Home asked Vicky,Angie's
sister, to chose a Tribute that described Angie.
After looking through the book we finally chose
the following:

God saw you getting tired

and a cure was not to be,

So He put His arms around you

and whispered "Come to me".

With tearful eyes we watched you,

and saw you pass away.

Although we loved you dearly,

We could not make you stay.

A Golden Heart stopped beating,

hard working hands at rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.


Angie went through chemotherapy for 2 l/2 years
after she was diagnosed at the age of 17. She was
so strong and courageous while she underwent her
treatments. In 2001, Angie relapsed but she had
two donors for a transplant...Vicky and Gregory.
Vicky was the donor and she was also strong.
Problems resulted during the transplant and
Angie relapsed on June 11, 2002. After a third
try at chemotherapy, Angie's liver could not
withstand anymore drugs. She went home and
passed away at 6:30 in the morning after I told
her it was "okay to go to heaven and be with Jesus
and the Angels and Saints". She took her last
breath and her heart stopped beating minutes after
I told her that. I know God gave me the gift of
watching a shadow leave her body, which was her
Soul. I immediately knew Angie was not in her body
any longer and felt her Soul was with God...Angie
was born to Eternal Life! Angie loved life and
people. She was friendly and cared for everyone;
she never met a stranger. She had many plans when
she was told she might be cured with the
transplant. She wanted to attend college and
write books for children. She loved children and
although she was told she could not have children,
she thought of adopting. Angie left her three pets
with us, Bo, a dog, Chandler Bing, a cat, and
Lucy Lu, a kitten. A true Champion while she lived
on this earth and My Hero...


Written by Maria, Angie's Mom

Angela loved the beach,
Her dreams were to live by the ocean.
She moved to California to start her new life.
The dreams she had were shattered.
Cancer changed her life one day.
Angie fought the disease with all her strength.
One sad day the cancer returned.
Angie's life was to be shortened
and she understood.
Her dreams were to live by the ocean.
She moved to California to start her new life.
Angela Renee is Resting in Peace in Ocean-Side...
she is living her New Life
