I remember Angie as my friend's younger sister,
who had a warm, sweet smile and always made me feel welcome as the whole family did whenever I visited the Wright family. I see from the picture that she still had that the same smile. My deepest condolences.

Angela mentored me as a Speech Therapist for a year... she was a Godly woman, who was an exceptional SLP...with loads of character. She encouraged my walk immensely. Thankful to know her and that we'll meet again someday... praising together. Prayers lifted up for Ernie, friends and family
