These are two beautiful and loving gifts for Angel Angie from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.
Angie, I have been so very sad lately as I need you in my life to help me with
what I am going through. I am so lost and confused. I do have your son with me as you know
and he has been my rock since Pop Errol's passing. I miss you every day of my life
and then some. I keep telling myself that I am not the only one who has lost a child
and to get a hold of myself. As you know, Angie, I'm going through a very scary period
in my life right now and sure could use my registered nurse. I have many friends
that I know now that also has lost a child or children and they help me through the day.
Angie, you were such a loving baby, happy and so content.
The day you were born was one of the happiest days of my life.
When I held you for the first time...........I knew then that there was truly a Creator,
Divine and Merciful that gave you life. You were a miracle birth
as doctors did not think I would carry you to full term. God knew differently.
I miss your hands, your softness, your bear hugs, and your lovely smile.
I hope you are with all of my deceased loved ones, especially the angels
that are mentioned here everyday. You are always in my heart
and in my mind; there you live on forever. Please ask God to help me on earth;
I need His Divine intervention and I know you can talk Him into it.
I miss you more and more as I get older. All of my love to you.
I am sorry I cannot visit your grave at this time. Mama
I cherish my memories of you
Just as I do my childhood dreams
Deeply hidden inside my heart
Secured there never to depart
Iíll never forget you
As I hold you forever there
Youíll always be a part of me
Your memories Iíll often share
Iíll forever remember you
While time may cause others to forget
Having you forever hidden in my heart
Never shall I ever forget...

My daughter, Angie Ann Duhon, was found dead in her apartment,
and it was later discovered it was a bacterial infection that went to her lungs.
I'm crying night and day for my little girl Angie who was only 31.
Angie was typical of us New Orleans people who are a great party people,
lots of colors in our lives, lots of music, cajun style, and most of all,
very very Catholic. Saints and more saints. The more saints the better.
The blessed Mother, Jesus, the Saints. We live 1/2 hour from
The French Quarter
in a real small laid back southern town called Harrahan.
Angie was a nurse for the local prison.
She was beautiful. Blond and gorgeous, but had gotten somewhat heavy
before she died, but still gorgeous.
Angie, in one of her last pictures, from January 2002.
Angie was raised by Annie and her step father, Errol, who loved her as his own.
She had one boy named Trey who is now 16 and lives with his dad and stepmother.
This is Ann, Trey and Angie, from September 1998.
Angie died in her apartment, alone, and there was this beautiful sketch
of Jesus right above her head when we found her.
Here is my bedroom nightstand with Angie's picture that is on her grave
and Jesus's picture that I found above Angie's head when I found her body.
I framed it to keep on here.
Angie was the head nurse in a prison in Louisiana. Her husband walked out
on her when her baby Trey was only about a year old or so,
and she lived with her mom for a while.
Angie had a very deep sadness in her since she was a very small child
because her mom and dad got divorced and her daddy did not
keep up his relationship with her. She pined for him
till the day she died at 31 years old.
Angie and her dear Dad, from 1974.
Angie and Larry Jr., dating in 1989.
Angie loved dancing in our Cajun tradition, and she had a beautiful voice for singing.
Cajuns are very big on lots of dancing and parties. We are very colorful,
love lots of bright color, like the mardi gras, the bayou, all New Orleans stuff.
We are also very very Catholic, and are big on the saints.
Our family likes St. Theresa, St. Ann, The Blessed Mother.
In this picture, I am doing Angie's nails as she was getting ready to graduate
from nursing school. This is from 1994.
One time Angie got sick with a very bad cold and came to visit me. When she had to go home,
I said don't get too close, I don't want to catch your cold,
and Angie said, then give me a bear hug Momma. Angie left and I saw the back of her head
as she left not knowing it would be the last time I saw her alive.
The next day I did not want to call her because I figured she was not feeling well,
and I didn't want to disturb her.
Then either that night or the next day, not really positive of the timing,
Angie's friend called me and said "Miss Ann, I had a lunch date
with Miss Angie and she never showed up", and that was not like Angie at all,
so me and my husband, Angie's loving step-dad Errol, who raised her,
went to Angie's apartment, and when we arrived I knew in my heart that Angie was inside dead.
I just knew. I battered the door down with my body since it was locked,
and when we walked in, there was Angie, dead on the couch for like 19 hours. The picture of Jesus was right above her head.
Angie died of some sort of bacterial infection
that went into her lungs, not sure of exact diagnosis, but I believe she basically
drowned in her own fluids in the lungs. It was initially thought it was a suicide,
but it wasn't, as was proven by the coroner's report.
Angie in the summer of 2001
Angie used to write to Jesus, and she would sign her letters "your lost little lamb."
Angie was basically a very unhappy soul while on this earth. She always longed for her dad's love,
which he did not give her, she was devastated when her husband walked out on her
for another woman when she was very young with her little 1 year old baby,
and it just seemed the odds were always stacked against her and she could find no peace.
Angie in 2001.
Angie left behind her boy Trey who was 12 at the time, now 23, her mom Annie, her step dad
who loved her like his own, Errol, her brother Brandon and his wife Dana.
Her brother Brandon and his wife have a little girl that looks exactly like Angie,
her name is BreAnn and Grandma Annie calls her "Kewpie".
"Mamou" holding Kewpie in July 2004.
Mom and Brandon at Brandon's wedding 10 years ago. Angie was alive then.
The outside view of the Chapel of Peace where Angie is buried.
This is Angie's gravesite, how pretty but how very sad as well.
This is our lost little lamb, just as Angie was and now I am just like her.
Don't Grieve For Me,
For Now I'm Free
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now, God set me free.

This picture is from August 29, 2004. This is my son Brandon with his boat that we helped buy for him,
that is Angie's son Trey in the center and Trey's friend Casey.
Brandon was taking the boys fishing. Brandon shaves his head like Mr. Clean,
and Trey just adores Brandon.
The Full Version of The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

Fr Bertram Griffin -- 1932-2000
Requiescat in Pace
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3, 5-6

Angie's Ann's day is almost here and once again, we have another day of sorrow
We will honor and celebrate our Angie's life
and know that she is in a special mansion
with our merciful God.
You will meet again
The Other Annie
You are so special to me
We shall fly, each of us with one wing missing
And together we have one pair to soar to the heavens
Your Sister in the Garden of Tears
Dear Ann and ANGEL Angie
This poem is one of many that my ANGEL Lee wrote, a very special one of mine.
I would love to share it with you.
Softness of the skin
Sweetness in the smell
Nectar of the fruit
Tender in the heart
Dancing in the eyes
Uplifting in the smile
Tickle of the touch
Joining in the love
Truth in the speech
Love in the laughter
Primal in the scream
Soft in the whisper
Quick in the mind
Fair in the sentence
Brave in the confrontation
Joining in the love
Graceful in the sleep
Careful in the search
Deep in the sorrow
Strength in the sickness
Giving of thy self
Rich in the health
Kind in the giving
Joining in the love

Robbie Smith's Memorial
My Dear Annie,
We have made so many memories in these past years that we've known each other.
Truly our friendship was begun in heaven. Some people touch our lives
just for a season
and leave their heartprints with us,
while others touch our lives in such a way that it feels
as though it's a bond
that will truly last into eternity.
We have shared so many of our
innermost thoughts and beliefs
and have adopted each other as Sisters in Christ.
We've gone through our ups and downs together, our joys and our tears, and this,
All through a computer screen and telephone. Our Almighty God works wonders
and He has given us this grand miracle of our friendship.
Let us continue, my Annie, to walk holding hands, all the way to heaven.
Maybe we're thousands of miles apart
But through our loss we have shared one heart
Wearing one pair of shoes as we limp along
Weeping our tears with our mournful song
Truly sisters of the heart are we
Hang on for the journey for the best will yet be
Sending my love and hugs on Angie's most special day
The 44th year of her birth
The Other Annie
Your Forever Friend
A Flower in the Garden of Heaven
You are in my heart tonight and as I promised my candle has been burning for Angie all night
and I offered a beautiful prayer to the Lord for her.
As 11:00 p.m. is approaching I realize how much pain this is causing you.
We just have to cling to that faith that one day we will
surely be with our children again. I feel your pain
the same as if it were my very own. God is with us and very close by.
Remember when we suffer God draws near. May you feel Him very close tonight.
With my Love and deepest affection for you
Your Friend Forever
IN LOVING MEMORY OF ANGIE ANN DUHON
For Annie, the sister of my heart
My Angie girl where have you gone
My tears won't stop, I can't go on
You left too soon with no goodbye
Leaving me here forever to cry
One day we'll be dancing again my girl
When I come through those
heavenly gates made of pearl
Wait for your mama, I'll get there you know
I'll give you that bear hug and never let go
My sweet little cher please watch over me
I'm journeying home where forever we'll be
With My Love and Prayers and so many shared tears
You Are in Our Hearts Forever
And Remembered With Love By All
Whose Lives You Touched
May Our Sorrowful Mother Hold Your Sweet Spirit
In Her Arms Until Your Mama Gets There
Annie, You know I'm thinking of you
and I wish
I had something that could ease your terrible pain
Look at Our Sweet Sorrowful Mother
all that she suffered too
Mary was a brokenhearted grieving mother just like us
May God always be near you and carry you through this life
My dear Annie, friend of my heart
With Love and My eyes cry with yours
The Other Annie
