    Rest in peace. Cancer is a terrible thing, I lost my 44 year old husband to it too. My thoughts are with her family.

    With her smile and laughter, Vangy added a sparkle to each moment spent in her company. I had the good fortune and pleasure to work with her at THDA. Pat and the rest of her family have my deepest sympathy for their loss.

    Worked at THDA down the hall from Vangy. What a great lady with one of the best personalities I’ve ever been around. Truly missed her when she left. I know God has welcomed her into Heaven now without any illness at all. God bless her family and friends.

    Vangela will be greatly missed by many! I met her through my neighbor suzanne and fell in love with her spirit the first time we met. I’ve never laughed so hard in life, she was REAL!!! My deepest regrets go out to family and friends of hers.

    From the moment I met Vangela, and was greeted with a full on bear hug, I knew she would be a friend for life….she had more love and energy than anyone I had met before. She would open her heart and her arms to anyone…and lived life to its fullest. I will miss Vangela with all of my heart. My deepest condolences to her blood family, and her family of friends that supported and cared for her….

    Sorry we can’t get there today. Mom doesn’t get around well anymore. It is hard losing Van.
    I know she and Delaine are having their girl talks. Love to you to you all always. Let me know if there is anything I can do. Sheryl and Miss Ann
