With a heavy heart I offer my deepest condolences to you. I first met Mary Angie more than 20 years ago when I coordinated food and clothing drives for the company I represented and United Charities. We bonded as friends at our very first meeting I always gained strength from our talks and was in awe of her optimism and unyielding faith. She was truly a source of light to all the lives she touched. Mary Angie will forever be in my heart. God bless you all... She will be forever in
