  1. The first time I met Angie and Roland is when we visited Christchurch thirty years ago with a view to moving here. They and their two tiny children opened their home to us and our tiny children and gave us lunch. Angela has been a lovely, kind, thoughtful, encouraging friend over the years, the world has lost an amazing woman. My heart goes out to Roland, Jonathan, Amy, Daniel and Hannah as you grieve your lovely wife and mum. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. We first came in contact at church. I remember well Angie and I were calling on various people around Iford evangelising. . We were greeted by a grieving single lady who had just been told she had terminal cancer. She was estranged from her children. In this meeting this lady received Jesus. 3 weeks later she died. Oh Gods perfect timing.
    Bless all who knew Angie who always together with Roland made me welcome. I remember too the evenings we became prayer warriors as a small group of believers.

  3. I only knew you during our years at senior school, but you left a lasting impression.

    You were popular and always kind and thoughtful. You were an inspiration to others and always helpful. The world is a sadder place with your passing.

    I hope you are in peace with your past family and friends and are looking down on your loved ones with joy in your heart with all that you had achieved in your short life.

  5. Roland and Angela were the first real friends I had in the country where God had led me to call home. During the years when I was trying to implement my business, the conversations with Roland and Angela were always very informative and inspiring, and helped me a lot. My family and I are very saddened by Angela’s departure, but we understand that God is good and He knows all things. I think there’s a Party in Heaven with Angela’s arrival! May God bless the whole family, giving each one peace in heart and mind.

  8. I will never forget how welcomed Angela made me feel from the first time I met her. I didn’t know anyone in a completely new country and, from the very beginning, she made me feel like home – I’ve got lovely memories of making pancakes and baking in her kitchen with her, Amy and Hannah; the amazing dinners and barbecues at her home; the charity event for Macmillan, and many more. I will always be grateful to Angela for having introduced me to Amy, now a great friend and part of my British family. I will always remember the kind way Angela treated everyone and the warmth of her laughter, as well as all the love and hospitality I received from the whole Gilbert family.

  9. Beautiful memories of our cousin Angela. You were a precious gift to all who had the privilege of knowing you. So sad that you had to leave us so soon but the love and the memories that you left with us will live on in our hearts and minds forever and ever.
    Rest in peace you beautiful beautiful lady.
    Much love Always Janet & Matthew Ellis & Stephen Whittle ❤️❤️🙏🙏 xxxxx

  10. Such fond memories of our childhood with our cousin Angela in Kent and Yarmouth. Sad that you were taken so young, you are now at peace with the lord and those that have gone before you.
    God willing we will see you again in heaven.
