    Iknew Angel well. I met her in Louisville and we lived together for awhile. She was very special to me.We had a house, a car, two cats we had it all. Then one day a friend of hers turned her on to crank, and she was off and running. She will be missed. I always thought I would see her in a store or somewhere. R.I.P. My Angel!

    I think that the drugs caught up with both of these individuals beth and is a shame that neither of their children will have any normalcy if they ever did there are two sides to every story seems to me bruce hartley wasn't the only one with drug problems. I hurt for everyone involved and their are two sides to every story and two families broken and nothing can correct that. beth

    The people that suffer the most in this situation are the little ones that will never know a mother, good or bad. She will be missed even here in Louisville.
