We have some difficult days ahead but it will all be worth the heart ache if justice is served for you. On next Friday is the sentencing and on Saturday March 3rd would be your 8th birthday. I know you would have already been building up the excitement of your coming birthday. You loved every holiday or birthday even if it wasn't yours. I remember you bugging dad about getting something for me on Mother's day last year. It meant so much to you to do things for others. I miss that so much. This house is just so empty without you in it. We have lots of pictures and a beautiful quilt and pillow that was made from your clothes to remember you by, but it doesn't fill the emptiness of you not being here. I miss you so much and think of you everyday. I love you, sweetheart!

As Always In My Thoughts / Donna Pavlik (mom)
Just sitting here and as always thinking of you. I know I don't write everyday but I do go on here everyday to look at the candles and tributes people write and to look at your pictures. It all seems like yesterday that you were here and in reality it is going on 8 months since you were taken from us. It is so hard to believe. In so many ways the whole nightmare seems like yesterday as I relive it so often. But then it in another sense seems like forever since I held you. I think often of how you loved to crawl up on my lap even though you were getting to be a pretty big girl. You always loved to cuddle and sit as close as possible to me and dad when we would watch movies with you. And of course you always had to have your popcorn. You and Vanessa used to make such a popcorn mess in your room when she would sleep over and watch a movie in your room before bed. But it was no big deal to do cleanup knowing you had so much fun with Vanessa. It meant the world to me that she stuck by you. Even when your moods were not so pleasant. She never gave up and went home, she just waited it out and you usually came around and had fun. I hope you realize what a terrific friend she was to you.
I miss you so much I don't think anyone can understand the hurt that is in my heart. So many times a thought comes to me or a song that reminds me of you and I do all I can to keep from breaking down. It is hard to always hold the tears in but if I start it is real hard to stop. I wish everyday that things could have turned out differently and the hard part is knowing there is nothing I can do to change it. I will do all I can to keep your memory alive and hope that this never happens to another child.
I love you and miss you so much. Love you sweetheart,
Missing you... / Julie Hoefs (Aunt)
Angie, You should see the beautiful quilt and pillows that were made from your clothing. I think your mom did a good job picking out some of your favorite clothes. We have one of the pillows and Vanessa has been sleeping with it nightly. We sure miss you Ang, and we love you very much. Love, Julie Close
Merry Christmas Angel! / Caitlin Hoefs (Big Loving Cousin )
Angie, We all miss you so much down here. Merry Christmas! I remember last year when you insisted on sitting by me and my family at grandma's to open presents. It was a wonderful feeling knowing how much you loved me and my family, or anyone in that matter. You were such a loving forgiving child. That one year and a half was one of the best of my life. We all miss your beautiful smile. We are keeping your memory very alive. We got shirts with you picture on it and wore them on Christmas today. You are so beautiful. I never thought you would have to leave us so soon. If I would have known I would have played with you and shown you all of the awesome things I wish I could have. We all are missing you and having a hard Christmas. It is very sad. Donna was having a hard time watching Riley, Vanessa, Jeremy, and I open presents, remembering how much you loved Christmas. If i would have known you were going to leave us I would of gotten you a HUGE present. One that showed how much we love you. It is sad seeing a doll Vanessa got that looks like the one I gave you and that you were burried with. I am listening to a song right now and I hate one of them lines because it says, " Who was I to make you wait," and that makes me feel so guilty because when you asked me to play I would say in a little bit and sometimes I never would. That makes me feel so guilty and sad. Well, Angel I better go to bed. I will pray for you tonight. Tell Grandpa and Brett that I pray for them too. Love you all!!
Merry Christmas sweetheart! This morning is not filled with the excitement it was when you were here, instead it is filled with sadness and tears. I hope you can be celebrating just as you would have here with us. There is such an emptiness in our house especially today. We all enjoyed watching you get so excited as you opened you presents. Your beautiful eyes would just light up when you would see you got one of the presents you wished for. Those thoughts will be with me today as I watch the other kids. I hope you will be by our side today as we celebrate Christmas. I know you will be it the hearts and thoughts of all our family. I wish so bad you were here by my side bugging about opening your presents, anxiously waiting to tell Vanessa what you got. I love you so much and miss you.
Tomorrow is Christmas and the thought of it without you is tearing me up inside. I feel the biggest hole in my heart thinking of Christmas with you gone. I keep thinking of your excitement in waiting for the "big day" last year. You had a horrible time falling to sleep on Christmas Eve. You loved going over to grandma's and singing Christmas songs and just being with everyone. On Christmas day Vanessa came over and you girls played for a long time with all the new toys. You loved even the smallest gifts but more than anything you loved your new doll. I just can't believe we have to go through this without you. I dread it more than anything. All of us are going out to the cemetery this afternoon. This is more difficult than I imagined. I hope you are up there celebrating with Brett and Grandpa Potter. Grandpa is probably grumbling about having to make such a big deal with the gifts. He used to do that alot. I miss all three of you more than words can say and I wish you were all here with us. At least you are all together. You are in my heart as always.
Merry Christmas / April DeMille
I just want to say that I hope your family still has a Merry Christmas even with the loss of Angellika. I pray for blessings and justice and healing for your family. I have deceided that I am going to be an advocate for all children with disabilities. I will with god's help friends and family and many others spread the word and give knowledge to those you are not familiar with mental health disorders in children. I am going to raise awarness all in memory of Angie. May she rest in peace and may you know there are many people who have you all in their thoughts, prayers and that do share your story. I want to help make a better world for children. I recently attended the family ties christmas party and it was a blast. I plan on attending meetings and finding ways to raise money for angie's fund and would love to see angie's house established. Merry Christmas to you all. God Bless With lots of love, April DeMille Close

Hi Ang~ I was at your house last night and I saw the picture of you sitting on Santa's lap last Christmas. You looked so excited. I was also looking at the ornament with your pic on it. I am so sad that you wont be here for Christmas. I know you are in a better place and will be having a much better celebration than we could ever have down here, but my heart just aches for you. You brought so much to our family and we are so grateful that God picked our family for you to be a part of. I love you hun and think about you daily!! Love, Ju (Julie) Close

Dear Sweet Angellika - I hope you like all the pretty Christmas decorations! It was an honor to be able to do this for you! And guess what - you & I have the same birthday! So, I will always remember you on your special day. I know your family is very sad that you cannot be with them on Christmas so maybe you can send them some of your sweet angel dreams or kisses so that they don't hurt to much during the holidays okay? Big Hugs to you Angellika & have a heavenly day. Here's a special Doll just for you... LuAnn
