My prayers are with you. I want you to know that I am thinking of you and your family. Please accept my condolences. I can only imagine how difficult this must be for you. However, it does my heart good to knowing that you were able to be there with your Mother in her final moment. That in and of itself is a Blessing!

I am sorry that I can not make the funeral to convey my condolences in person. Know that I will be with you in spirit.

Peace & Blessings

Dr. Dickey and family. I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. I was so glad I was able to visit with you and Angie last year when I was home visiting my family. Angie always had a kind word for me whenever we spoke on the phone. My family considers your family dear friends and Angie will be greatly missed and remembered fondly. Please find comfort and strength in your faith during this difficult time.

I’m very sorry to hear about Angela. She was a great lady and very dear cousin to my mother Deloris Gorby Kennedy. I have fond memories of the visits your family would make down to the farm in PA. I especially remember the ponies Thunder and Lightning. She will be missed by many but I’m sure she is in a better place now with all the family she loved so much!
