This is the story of my adorable girlfriend who has just passed away.
She wrote her life story at the urging of friends, workmates, and strangers who were awestruck, as I was, at her incredible tale of survival, her astonishing courage, and most of all, her kindness and generosity.
I met Angel shortly after her heart transplant, and during our nine years together, I saw the fear in her eyes every single day. And the desperate need for love, and the great compassion....
Angel survived horrific childhood brutality, starvation, appalling poverty, rape, imprisonment (being held prisoner by Muslims in Pakistan), a stroke, 2 heart valve replacements, a heart transplant, and so much more. Despite this, her compassion knew no bounds.
My love, my heart, my soul, my Angel, you wanted to be an author. I am putting your story on Booksie to see if anybody out there is as inspired by you as I am. My love, you taught me how to live.
