Angus was one of the kindest, most caring people I ever met. He would go out of his way to help anyone. He possessed a contagious joy about him. From the moment my parents (Papi and Mami) and I met Angus, he became a very dear family friend. For years, when my parents visited Boston, seeing Angus and Rose became one of the highlights of their trip. We have many wonderful memories full of love and laughter. Angus will always live in our hearts and his spirit will continue to shine its bright light in heaven forever.
