It is so hard to believe our Angela is gone. I have learned so much from her especially the way she fought this battle. An amazingly strong, funny, fun, smart, brazen woman. She will be missed.

I agree, Union Maid. There is no way I could have met cancer the way she did. I am amazed at her strength, dignity, inclusion and the fierceness way she lived her life.

I will miss Angela's honesty and humor. And when my time comes, I hope I can face it the way she did, never losing either.

It is amazing how strong relationships can grow, even virtually. Do you ever catch yourself in a situation and think "this is how X-Topix friend would respond"? Even though I wouldn't know most of you if you ran me over with your bike, I value your friendship.

This morning I am sad and angry that Angela is gone. Her humor and willingness to let so many into her life and share her journey was awesome (in the original sense of the word).

Still, this is a sh*tty start to the week.

All our lives are fuller for having known Angela.

I hope to hold her wisdom and humor in my heart for the rest of my life and live with honesty, love, and irreverence.

I am just a wreck. I can't stop crying. There was nothing imaginary about her friendship. She has been there for me through the years and like you said it was a strong friendship.

The end just went SO fast. The only consolation I take from it is that it wasn't a long drawn out passing. It went too fast, but hopefully with as little suffering as possible. If that makes any sense. I'm still pretty numb.

And, yeah I echo the shi**y way to start the week.

Totally know what you mean...and if you find yourself explaining your Topix friendships to someone else, you quickly realize that you sound a little crazy.

I thought she had more time...she was posting just a few days ago. But, knowing that things were going downhill so quickly the past few days, I am glad that she didn't linger very long, both for her sake and for those closest to her.

DUDE! I so would've if I had seen this in time.
I don't have internet on my phone (or text, I know I know) so I did not see it until now.
I presented at NOVA yesterday and bailed on it today. It was warmer and beautiful and I found the 5 Guys neat A1A and then cruised north on it, windows down, music blaring......lovely.
Maybe next year.

I found Angela to be a very strong and dignified and caring woman.
I am profoundly saddened and will memorialize her in my heart.

Ditto,
She's the one who got me to give them a good listen to and made me a convert.

I agree. I feel that I am a better person for knowing her. I share grief with the group for the loss of a wonderful person.

Not sure which lyric fits better right now... Queen's "she's my best friend" or Miss Congeniality's "she's beauty and she's grace, she's miss united states" as the stage is crumbling around the pageant.

I enjoyed reading her comments, especially the way she cut the crap, and i'm beyond amazed at how many of her imaginary friends have come out to support her, her family (including/especially Nick) and her RL friends. I can only dream of having that many friends - real or imaginary! She faced these last few months, weeks and days with a special grace that i hope we can all learn from. Thank you, Angela and crew, for sharing this journey with us...

God speed. See you on the other side!
