"....you've been on my mind so much since we were last in touch.  and, i realized it had been a while, even for us.  so, i sat down today to [finally!] put thought to action and write you an email.  before i did, however, something told me to google your name.  so, i did and, was completely gobsmacked to find this site.  not knowing your middle name i thought...'okay, doreen.  it might not be angela...relax.  calm down...' and, then i saw your face and was hit with the realization that, in fact, the angela pitts i know left this earth in late october of 2015.  2015?!  a year and a half ago? how is that possible?  and, though i've been writing you emails in my head for much of the time since, i had no idea i should have been addressing them to heaven....i went back and read all the emails i have from our correspondence over the years-i hope you feel honored to know that you have your very own folder in my yahoo mailbox-and, our last communication was in august of 2015.  it was me who owed you an email.  at the time i was traveling, of course-as i do.  and the rest of 2015 and 2016 just flew by in a blur.  i'm only now coming up for air....although ours was a long-distance friendship, held together by sporadic emails, a phone call every now and again and, my visit to fayetteville in 2012, i have cherished you and your continued presence in my life since we first met at the climbing gym in burlington all those years ago....and though i've seen the taj mahal, been to UNESCO world heritage sites, the pyramids of egypt and sudan and swum with whale sharks and manta rays, my visit to fayetteville in 2012 to see you and 'your boys,' remains one of my fondest memories...ever...gosh, angela...i was so looking forward to picking your brain about trump and his travel bans and executive orders and...so much more....darling, i am so grateful to have gotten to share some memories with you as we both navigated this complicated thing called life.  and, though i may not be able to come visit you in fayetteville anymore, please know i carry you with me always in my heart.  oh, and...can you still send me inspiration for killer music recommendations, please?  love you angela.  always and forever...."

"I haven't been able to write anything because I can't believe you are gone. If I don't write it I don't have to accept it....I come to work every day and still expect to see you or hear you come through the door. Angela, where are you. I am not ready to do with out you. I have so many things I remember us doing together and some regrets. The Friday night before you left us you asked me out for a drink and I had something else to do, not knowing that would be my last chance, and also I never told you how much I loved you and I don't know why I didn't. Again, thought I would see you at work Monday morning.....I am angry....sad, my only hope is you are somewhere wonderful you can see me sitting here crying my eyes out wishing we could go hear Elephant Revival again, or go to the Roots Festival together this year again, or just talk during the day about a case or just breathe the same air. Miss you more than I can say...the kids miss you too."

"When I think of what Angie meant to me and my family, nothing better describes how much we loved and respected her than saying she was a true, loyal friend. She was the one who taught us how to drive a stick shift using HER car although we did a number on the gears. She was the one who volunteered to drive hours to take us back to college, or pick us up, or just do any road trip. She was the one who drew little comic books as gifts that were so funny and personal. She was the one who listened and stood by for us. She was the one who checked in and made it a point to not go too long without a call. She was the one who let us know through actions what it means to be a friend. But Angie was no push over (OK, maybe with her dogs....).  She was incredibly smart, dedicated and worked hard for the causes she cared for and in her work. She pushed me to think about things, to reconsider issues, to expand my knowledge. But she also could communicate with anyone, make them feel comfortable (such as my parents) even if they may not see eye-to-eye on some things.  Truly a gift to be both passionate and yet gentle.

Angie--I'm so sorry that I could not tell you these things and for being out of touch for so long. Your friendship was a gift for me and for my family. I miss you and will treasure you forever."

"My friend,   To have such an accomplished,  intelligent and kind person in my life was a great blessing for me.  Your dedication to helping others was an inspirational.   You always knew why our work at Metro was so important.  I think often of the stimulating conversations and not to mention the fun with the dogs.  I will miss you."

""Angela was a 'little-sister' to a lot of Sandy's friends....  We have always known that Punky was Sandy's best friend.  Sandy is so proud of Punky and all that she accomplished in her life.  I believe that life doesn't end when we take our last breath; we will all be together again one day.  Until then, know that Punky's memories will keep her in your hearts.  So, I will say what I always say when seeing someone for the last time on the day of their funeral.... "Bye, Punky!  I'll see you in Heaven".  Comfort comes from knowing we don't die; when just move somewhere else.""

"Punkie!!  When I say that name, a vivid picture of a beautiful, loving, smiling individual pops up in my mind. Your quiet smile of grace and your strong confidence and acceptance of who you are will leave a legacy for all of us to live up to. You are a Pitts--honest, strong and hard working. You are gone from us but never will you be forgotten by us. You are my sweet niece!!!"
