In November 2002, Angie and I went to Cape May, New Jersey.  We remembered the trip we made there with Angela and her friend Kelly Whitmer (now Zarbo).  
We scattered some of her ashes on the beach and  recalled  that on that earlier  trip, when we  ate at the Lobster House,  Angela told me: "That's the best red snapper you ever had!"
            In 2002, Laura Mallia, who received the Angela Coniglio Scholarship from Amherst in 2000, transferred from West Virginia University to Nazareth, where she helped the team win the Empire 8 Conference title.  Her penalty kick goal helped Nazareth defeat Grove City in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

            Nazareth College holds a soccer banquet every year in January.   The team is recognized for its accomplishments and a single individual award is given.  It is the Angela Coniglio Assists Award, given in remembrance of Angela's ability to create scoring opportunities and assist on goals.  Jaime Snyder was a senior in 2002.  During her career at Nazareth,   Jaime broke  Angela's career, season and game assist records, and in January 2003 received the Assist Award  for the fourth straight year.   Jaime wears number nine.  

               At the annual Awards Assembly in May of 2003,   Amherst Central High School presented the Angela Coniglio Memorial Scholarship   to  ACHS  lacrosse  star  Khrista Trerotola, who scored 58 goals in 2003 for a total of 127 career goals, shattering the previous school record of 103.   Khrista will study education and play lacrosse at Ithaca College.    Khrista wrote: “I  can not  thank  you enough  for allowing  Angela’s  memory  to  be  carried out through   my  future.“    Khrista’s words echo a quotation from president John Quincy Adams: ”The influence of each human being on others in this life is a kind of immortality.”

           On the day that Angela’s award was given, May 22, 2003, Annika Sorenstam  became the first woman in half a century to play in a men’s professional golf event. She shot one over par in the first round, and said of the young girls in the gallery “I hope they feel that when they grow up, they can play golf, but also follow their dream and follow their hearts.”   Angela’s sentiments, exactly.

          The 2004 recipient of the Amherst Scholarship was Katelyn Rudolph, a pianist and multi-sport athlete.  She played JV Soccer two years and Varsity Soccer four years, making Team Defensive MVP, 1st Team All-Division and All-Western New York; she co-captained the JV and Varsity Basketball teams, playing two years on each; and she ran Track three years, setting the school record for the 4x800 relay.   Katelyn’s father James Rudolph was inducted to the Amherst Athletic Hall of Fame in the same ceremony as Angela, in 1997. Katelyn attended (and played Soccer at) Springfield College, where she will prepare for a teaching career in Physical Education.

          Also in 2004, the 2001 Amherst Scholarship recipient, Jennifer Koeppel, was featured twice in the Buffalo News sports pages for her running prowess. Jenny became the first University of Buffalo woman to run in the NCAA Division I championships.

            In June, 1996, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory asked Americans to send in their signatures, to be sent on a voyage by the space probe Cassini.

            We sent Angela's signature.

            Cassini reached Saturn, on June 30, 2004.  When we see that bright star in the sky, it's now just a little bit brighter.
