And that’s where you’ll always find us … Right by your side👩‍❤️‍👩. You are our beautiful angel that is bigger than life. I will never encounter another human being so selfless like you. You’re one of a kind. Even on your worst days, you always wanted to know how I was doing or feeling. I know you will give me the strength to fulfill one of your wishes that you were begging for. You weren’t just an aunt to me, you were my big sister, my best friend, and a role model. A week ago you texted me that we needed to go to bora bora,I don’t care if I go all by myself because I know you’ll be right by my side. I love you more than you’ll ever know😔💔💔💔. My heart is broken, but I know you’re in peace now my biggest best angel💕 … I miss you already. I miss how we would goof off together, shop together, or gang up on my mom when she didn’t agree with us! I miss every single thing about you.



Ang was surrounded by family members at a Manhattan hospital at the time of passing, early morning on Thursday. Doctors had discovered a tumor in her throat, which was later removed, after diagnosing her with throat cancer, April 2015.
