  1. Al & Family, We are so sorry for your loss. Angela was a wonderful person and a great friend. Having you and Angela for neighbors was a blessing and we missed you after we all moved from the house. We always loved talking with Angela out on the steps of the apartment and Lenny loved having her as his .Halloween Night. partner in giving out candy to all of the kids. Angela always loved talking with our son Daniel. She liked to watch him play ball in the front yard and she had even gone out in the yard on many occasions to join him. I enjoyed talks with Angela about the flowers she grew in the front yard and how she planted tomato plants for Al because he loves them so much. She was the type of person that would watch out for everyones well being and grateful to those who helped her, whether it was for the gentlemen from bottling company across the street for clearing her car of snow, to our former mailman, John for taking time to stop and chat with her to us for the night the furnace malfuntioned. She will be missed, but she will forever remain in our hearts and memories.
