I first met Angie in the late Seventies while working as a CNA at West Park Care Center on Vine Street Valley Junction. I got lucky with that job.I was not only trained by one of the most compassionate caring sweet individuals that worked there but I had met a awesome woman who would become a close friend of mine for the 3 1/2 years we worked together and we continued to stay in contact for several years afterwards.I'm grateful for having such a beautiful inwoman in my life for the time I did and I'll keep you all in my prayers.
