RIP: Angel Antonio

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I never met her, I never knew her.

But I know she was my good good friend Maymay's best friend since High School.

I've heard her name so many times in passing, but we never met.

One of the things I distinctly remember was that - Angel was assigned(or volunteered) to make Maymay's wedding AVP - and after making the AVP, she told Maymay that she was sawa na with looking at our Beijing barkada pics because there were so many! Hahaha...

I know for a fact that she is loved by many.

I know too that she will be missed.

For all your wonderfulness Ange - to Maymay (and to your friends) - Thank you!

I can't believe how affected I am, I mean - I didn't know her at all! Is it because her best friend is one of my good good good friends? I consider Maymay a sister (as we were really in Beijing) and I feel her pain, I knew how important Ange was to her..

Rest in Peace, Angel Antonio!

My prayers are with you and your family. Always.

  6. There's something about Angel that you can't put a finger on. There are people who aren't too keen about her circle of friends, but she was always an exception. Always. Perhaps because she was just a simple, kind person who managed to get along with ANYONE. She would level with whomever she was talking to. She would make a genuine effort to get along with anyone. Angel was free of pretension.

    This just goes to show that a kind person like her will always be remembered by people she has crossed paths rather pleasantly.

  7. Hi, I used to work with Angel in the same company. Although I only got to work with her for a short period of time, I got to know her well enough because she was easy to get along with.

    I was just telling a friend earlier today that I still cannot believe she is no longer with us. I still have this image of her as a lively and cheerful person. I've actually visited her Friendster twice already just to look at her pictures. It still bothers when I think of how early she lost her life. For someone who appears to have so many plans in life, it is really sad to think that she won't be able to realize her plans anymore.

    She’s one of the few people I know who seems to have everything that anyone would want to have in life. She was smart, pretty, and well-to-do. She has her family and lots of friends to support her, but in a split second, everything was taken away from her. For all us who knew her, we were suddenly reminded that everything we have in life is temporary and it makes you look back at how you spent your own life in the past few years. I just really hope she’s happy and peaceful wherever she is right now. I hope she gets to see or hear all these messages of praises from her friends.

  9. I knew her from high school. We were team mates and she was a wonderful captain. She never gave me a hard time or made feel out of place. She had a very sweet smile, face and demeanor. I really looked up to her. Her beauty, kindness. intelligence and atheleticism was very inspring. When I found out about her death, I was shocked and sad. She had a lot of things going for her. She was young too. Just a year older than me. We weren't close but she's one of the nicest people I've ever met. That's why hearing such sad news left a crack in my heart.

  13. I met Angel because we used to go to the same gymnastics class when we were still in HS though we went to different schools. I remember how friendly she was & always had this smile on her face.
    I just found out now that she passed away almost 3 years ago. Can someone share what accident she was involved in?
    May she rest in peace.

  14. I think she died in a car accident while on her way home.

    I browsing the net trying to find old friends and then I suddenly thought of going back to this page... in a few weeks, it will be 3 years since she died.
