"Today SUCKS! Cancer SUCKS!  Loosing a friend SUCKS!
I saw a butterfly on Sunday and remembered our conversation after a chemo session in which you saw a white butterfly and asked me -- do you think that butterfly is following me.  Not sure where you were going with that I said, girl don't pay that butterfly any mind. I was speechless when I saw it.  In my mind I said "Angie?"  Now whether it was you or not, the butterfly gave me peace and comfort just as you always did.  So keep whispering and sending messages - I hear you loud and clear :-).  Miss you my friend.  Xoxoxox"

"Angie, my sister, my friend.  I cannot believe a year has gone by without you by our side.  I miss you every day it aches.  I really do. I have no one to laugh with like we used to when we make our shopping trips out East, spend hours shopping for stuff we hardly need, only to return them the following week.  I have not been out East on my own since you passed.  It's painful. I miss you.  Rest in peace Love.

"Miss you Hun. Last year on 1/20/15, we buried your mom. Little, did we realize you will be leaving us barely 9 months later. Miss you so much every day. You will always be my cherished friend. God bless babes."

"It's been a month and I still SMH in disbelief that you are no longer a phone call or a drive away!!!.  I will say that spending time with Al and the kids have special meaning.  The strength you exhibited during the time of your mother's illness and her passing gave the children a framework in which they could see how you simply have to keep on moving.  We're all moving, one day at a time.  Thank you again for your presence and unwavering friendship.  I miss conversations that include the "you don't understand Darnise" lol.  I now understand!  

May your spirit continue to watch over us as we navigate this thing called life."

"My deepest sympathy extends to your family.  Jehovah says to draw close to Him during and beyond your grieving days and He will sustain you.  He also made provisions for a resurrection of those that have fallen asleep in death.  Please see these promises @:
Revelations 21:4
John 5:28-29"

"To the family,

My deepest condolences to you Al and your kids. Even though Angie and I were estranged, I have always loved her and never will forget I our friendship. She was and always will be my sister friend and a great Godmother to my son."

"Angie will be sorely missed - her smile, her warm company, her compassion for others, her love of kids (her own kids and her friends'), and her free spirit. A truly beautiful human being. A huge loss to those that met and knew her. You always treasured and sought a connection to your African origin and even planned on visiting Ghana at some point. Trish and I promise to stay close to Al, Alyssa and Jeremie and will keep the connection alive."

"I had the pleasure of meeting Adjoah and her husband Al earlier this year (2015) when they registered their lovely children Alyssa and Jeremie to the CFA Chess and Science program.   The entire family was very supportive of the program as evident by their participation, involvement and encouragement throughout the season.   We will always remember Adjoah for her great support.   My deepest condolences to the family.  May her soul rest in eternal peace."

"I still can't believe you are gone. As the saying goes you are in a better place. That is very hard to accept. You are extremely loved and will be missed. I pray for your husband and beautiful children. I will always love and treasure you, Angie."

"I can't even express the level of sadness that Adjoah's passing has brought. I initially met her as a co-worker but over time we became friends. Our offices were right next door to each other and we would spend countless amounts of time talking about life, marriage, kids. She always expressed her love for Al and the wonderful man that he was.  I admired them as a couple and they absolutely adored the children. Prayers for comfort, peace and guidance during this difficult time are continually going out for the Gilbert & Sylla family."

"Words can't describe the hurt I feel Hun, You came into my life, made an impact and went off just like a candle in the wind. I miss you girl, I miss your smiles, your warmth, your laughter, your joy around you kids and hubby. We miss you. You can never be replaced.  God bless your soul."

"I worked with Angie at Home Depot in the early nineties. We both were Cashiers. She always had a joke and smile to help get us through 3-11p shift. We did not stay  in touched but, when I heard of her passing I remembered her without hesitation. I was saddened by the news. I pray for her family during this of bereavement. God Bless."

"My dear friend Adjoah, how you will surely be missed. I will always cherish our special lunches/dinners, you, Myriam and I made sure to have.  We have been to so many restaurants in our over 13 years of friendship.  We would go through our schedules to set dates and each of us took turns in finding restaurants all over NY to enjoy.  You always found it a point to have conversations with people you met.  You showed a genuine interest in getting to know them. The love you showed for Al and the kids will always be remembered.  You have been such a sweet heart. It is assuring to know that you are not only in God's arms but the arms of your mother's as well. You will ALWAYS be a cherished friend. I miss you. I LOVE you!

"Your life was a blessing. Your memory a treasure. You're loved beyond words & missed beyond measure. I will surely miss your beautiful smile & gentle squeaky voice.  As I sat here in my kitchen looking thru my kitchen window it leaves me a sense of emptiness knowing that you won't be there anymore to wave at me from your kitchen window :( but it gives me comfort knowing that you're now in a better place & pain free.  If only RIP meant Return if Possible! Thank you for all the memories my friend! Soar high Angie! Angel in the sky ♡♡♡"

"My friendship with Al led me to you. Yes I was at your wedding lol. Al will say...hey you are more my wife's friend than mine when we cultivated our own relationship that grew with each child and year that passed. Thank you for always inviting and allowing Keyara and I to come spend time with you and your family. Your ability to make us feel welcomed and special is what kept me coming back for more. I miss you really bad but i know for certain you are with us in spirit which is why my tears dry up quickly. A memory often brings a smile to my face. I love yiu my african princess. Get some rest. I'll talk to you later.

"Words are so difficult to express at this time. I ask God to keep her secure and give Albert and the children comfort and strength. I  miss my girlfriend so much.  I know she will  be watching over us, smiling, reassuring all of us that she is all right.  I love you Ajdoah!"

"To the family,
   Though I don't know you personally, I wish to express my condolences to your family. I have lost loved ones and friends in death, and it is Horrible. But I have found such comfort in knowing what the bible says about the future.
Acts 24:15-" there is going to be a resurrection." God is capable of restoring life back to those who have past away. He has yearning to do this. We also can have confidence because " with God all things are possible" says the bible.
