Published February 04. 2014 05:00PM

Friends, classmates and former co-workers of Angela "Angie Stagz" Steigerwalt flooded her husband's facebook page with heartfelt messages of grief and support.

Mike Heffelfinger: "I would really appreciate if everyone would keep my good friend Gary Steigerwalt and his son Brendon in your thoughts and in your prayers. Gary's beautiful and Loving Wife was taken from him this past weekend through a sensless act of violence. Gary is a great guy and could really use your generosity and prayers right now! Thank you and God Bless!!! R.I.P Angela!!"

High school friend Angela Bowman: "This is just so hard to try and understand. Angie was a warm, wonderful caring woman, so full of life. She will be missed by everyone who knew her."

Rebecca Romig Bowman: "I sit here with such a heavy heart ... Thinking of all those who were left behind, knowing all we know, Praying for everyone who feels this loss and feeling overwhelming anger at the person/people who were so heartless and cared little for a person's life! My constant thoughts and prayers are with Gary Steigerwalt, Brendon, Donnie Serfass and all your extended families! May God wrap His loving arms around you all and show you comfort as only He can."

April Eberts: "I just found about Angela today. I went to Germany with her in 1996 and we had so much fun.We were a pack: myself, Ang and Rischelle. Please make sure they process the car for finger prints. They might find them in the criminal database. I loved Ang and I'm so sorry for your loss. We were friends for years. You know my husband. I will do everything I can to bring this person to justice!!!"

Heather Miller Dunbar: "Sorry for your loss! I graduated with Angela she was a wonderful person. I can't imagine ... Thoughts and Prayers to you and family!!!"

Lee Bassage: "I worked with Angie at JCP in 2004 and 2005 and again in 2008. She was truly a ray of sunshine to everyone she came in contact with and will be sorely missed. There are no words for your family in such a tragic circumstance, but I pray that justice will be served. May you and yours find some comfort in the outpouring of support from those who knew her."

And friend Theresa Rother Houser of Tamaqua summed it up by saying "This just doesn't make sense. Angie was always smiling. Never said a bad word about anyone. What kind of scum would hurt her?"
