My Story

My mother, Angela Rea Soffredine, was the strongest woman I know. She may have made some wrong decisions in her life, but those decisions she made was always to sacrifice something for someone else. She was so kind and compassionate, helping every soul she ever met, because just maybe, that one person may have been her ticket to a happy life. But it seemed people took advantage of the kindness she gave, she would work for hours for someone just because they asked for the help, she would sit with the elderly and talk for hours because she knew they were lonely and that might be the only person they talk to that day, she would just stop by on someone she knew just to say "hey, i missed you", She cared so much for my brother and I, hoping we would do nothing but achieve the best, she had such high expectations I remember her telling me " My beautiful daughter, you are so smart, do not ever stop dreaming because the sky is not the limit, there is no limit to your dreams." I believed every word she ever said to me. She was my best friend and the most amazing mother you could ask for. Yes, she had her flaws, but don't we all, there is a reason people are the way they are, but it is not fair for us to judge that because we all have our reasons. She cared for her grandchildren most of all her silly Jacob and her little Malakki. She would buy stuff for them and send them a package every month just so they knew it was from Grandma. She loved so much and took the whole weight of the world all at once. 

This was my moms favorite poem
I remember her telling me she wanted this read at her funeral, but unfortunately the tragedy left me numb, so I could not do it. So here it is now.To the most beautiful soul in the world. I love and miss you so much mom, may your sweet, strong, compassionate soul rest in peace! 


I read of a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the the end.
He noted that first came her date of birth
And spoke the following date with tears, 1964-1994
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive on earth..
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own;
The cars..the house..the cash,
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard.
Are there things you”d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left,
That can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough
To consider what’’s true and real,
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger,
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we”ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile..
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy’’s being read
With your life’’s actions to rehash..
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?
