au revoir mon cher Angelique
A heavy heart | Sept 28 2002 | Carlo3b

au revoir mon cher Angelique

I have the truly sad and unenviable task of reporting the loss of a gentle lamb, and fierce patriot, our own dear girl, Angelique.
Simple words cannot express the profound loss I feel. To say I have lost one of my closest and dearest friends would be to betray my own feelings, I adored this girl. Her warm sweet childlike voice, contrasted with her signature feisty repartee, and unbridled humor made her a one-of-a-kind treasure. Her combative defense of her deeply held convictions, crossed many a sword with the best of her friends including yours truly, and her few if any enemies. She was a model Mother, daughter, sister, friend, patriotic American, Franco-American and staunch defender of the principals of a Free Republic, and above all FreeRepublic itself. Angelique said what she believed, with straight talk, a savvy humor and wit, but at times with a velvet sledgehammer ....tears, that was our darling French pastry.
Pray for our sweet girl, as I will, in hopes that she has found comfort and peace in His waiting arms.
pour toujours,  mon cher Angel,  with love......... Carlo

hmmm -couldn't reply to Angelique, personally, but - reading the last post from her - brought her to my heart - I'll pray to her, just in case she's an angel....and I'll bet she is.

La belle dame de l'audace et mort!?!?!

This is truly a dark day. God speed her feisty spirit to His side, but not before He sends out a memo to the angels to watch their step!

I will miss you, mon cher!

I will miss you.

The rest of us will have to try harder to make America truly the land of the FRee.

If we would do that in her name, nothing she would have wanted more than that for a me, that was her quest.

I just got back from the emergency room--had to have my sides sewn up! That taco bell/gore dog is the best laugh in the world! However, you forgot the pic of Hillary bald, and then switching hair with Bill! Bwahahahaha!

Angelique was a person who stood by her convictions

INDEED she did, and inspired everyone else to do the same!

I am so very sorry, carlo!
I knew Angelique from the many posts we've swapped back and forth.
She was a treasure of charm and wit with a loving nature and gentle manner.
I'm going to miss her greatly.

Oh, Carlo, I'm so sorry! I missed Angelique but I had no idea what was going on. She was a good lady, she was so cool! Blessings on her. And you hang in there.

Au revoir, ma petite amie.

Hours we spent talking but you never talked of your own pain, only that of others.

I will remember you every night when Blue Boy comes for dinner. I told him about you often.

The dark days are behind—you have now found the light. Rest in peace.

May she rest in peace.

She earned it. The dear girl never quit fighting for everything she believed in until the very end. Search her posts and read her words, they speak for themselves....Angelique was indeed unique in every way.

Yes, Wasperman, we had the best of times with our sweet and spirited friend and our love of 'wurdz' and 'wurd' play.
She and I were friends on the side as well as the threads, where we eternally redecorated the Freep Mail Room, drab as it was.
We gave it special touches, like the UNWANTED POSTERS I created with Bill and Hill and Ann (Gatling Gun) Lewis and Begala and their cohorts.
Used 'em as dart boards when frustrated or bored..:))

When there was a dispute on how chili should be made, one woman said she'd made a mess of it and biscuits (not cornbread or crackers, she said), the next day I knew what I had to do.

Hailed Angelique and tossed some of the hardened ones from my South Carolina to Arizona and pelted her.
All out war ensued, with an admonition to those in Texas not to stand up, else they be in the line of fire.
Our aim did not match our zeal!

My last mail from her was about that war, and soon after she was sorting and packing to move back to her home in California, I assume to be with her family.

Carlo, she will always be with us in our hearts, and our lives the richer for the time we had.
Angelique - I mourn you did not tell me you were so ill, and that I could not be there to hold your hand.
It is heaven's gain to have you there.
Until we meet again,

Was she involved with the all time classic... FReeper Island? I know she kept tellin me she was hangin by her petticoats from the White Cliffs of Dover. What a character!!! Unforgetable!!!

I've been too set-back financially to make a contribution to FR but I'm gonna give one tomorrow in Angelique's name. As valuable as FR is, she was more than just a "value added" AZ star!!!
