"I am so sorry to see this! I remember when Angela first came to Bancroft, she was totally baffled by the fact that everyone knew her name and yet she knew no one. Small towns were something she was not used to! I really enjoyed getting to know her. My prayers are for all of you, may your memories of Angela comfort you! Vickie Mulligan Godfredsen"
