Angel's Tribute Wall

Tributes (5):

  • I miss her so much and I think about her every single day I just want 5 more minutes with her she was too young to go.

  • Angel always helped others in need. She took in Lola as her own grandchild and enjoyed spoiling her. She had a solution for everything, or knew someone who could help. Angel will be greatly missed.

  • I am so very sorry for your loss. Angle was always willing to help people and I could see how much she enjoyed it. She was always very nice to me. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Angel has been a part of out family’s Christmas Eve for the past 6 years. It started with a forgotten Thomas the Train on 12/23/2012 when we had dinner at the diner. Angel held Thomas for my son and he and my husband had breakfast at the diner the next morning after picking it up. That day the Benoy Christmas Eve pancake challenge was born. There were more people some years than others but the pancake always won. Angel knew how to make this special for us and I think she looked as forward to it as we did. In 2018 she told us that she “almost filled the griddle with this one!” but to come back next year and she’d make it even bigger. I’m not sure how she flipped them and got them done all the way through and she wouldn’t show me but I’ll never forget her. She had a big, kind heart and I know this family will always miss her, especially on Christmas Eve.
