I attended Ben Davis High School with Angela. We became fast friends because she was funny, friendly yet laid back and welcoming. I moved to Georgia many years ago, and thanks to Facebook Angela and I were able to reconnect. Angela will be missed, and I extend my prayers, condolences, love and strength to the family.
