Soothing songs in memory of Angie K. Long, August 04, 2021 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1404)

Angie K. Long’s passing is a shock and sadness to all of us.  Personally, I was stunned into disbelief and heartbroken to learn Monday of Angie’s passing on August 1st.  She was such a sweet and incandescent soul of joy and kindness as an online friend.  Angie encouraged so many of us on our journey in the Richard Armitage Fandom and as bloggers, writers, and such. 

And Angie was unflinchingly forthright about the difficulties that she faced in her life—such as her recuperation after her harrowing car accident years ago, and  such—helping us to see that even when bad things happen to us, we can overcome them.  We shared laughter and tears together with Angie over the years.  And now her passing brings us more tears.

And the tributes to Angie pouring in from everywhere online and around the world  are merely a scintilla of how much Angie was loved by all of us.  We loved her fearless optimism, her joy, her hats, her gorgeous smiles with red lipstick, her wicked wit, her storytelling  and videos and artistic wallpapers—and so much more.  Her talents and joie de vivre were boundless.   Angie will be dearly missed by us all.

My thoughts are with Angie’s husband, family and friends.  May their memories of their happy times shared together with Angie help sustain them in their grief and sorrow.  One never gets over losing a loved one—especially, in losing dear sweet Angie.  The ache is always there, a poignant echo of the pain of loss.  But loving someone as deeply as Angie was loved in return, reminds us  we will always carry our loved ones  in our hearts, forever and a day.

And for us, Angie’s  online friends across the miles, we are already missing her sweet smiles–she took the best selfies (see below), next to RA!  So in our remembering Angie with the joy that she gave us and everyone, may our broken hearts mend a little bit every day, for her legacy of love and kindness.

       

So I share below some soothing  songs in memory of Angie.  May we each remember Angie in joy and love—and carry her joy and love forward  in her memory and in her honor.   Hugs & Love, Grati ;->

P.S.  And thanks to Jazzbaby1 and Guylty for sharing their tribute blog posts, and a link to Angie K. Long’s  obituary page.

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
