How they met
Angel tells us: "There's no story for us, really. We both grew up in Tonganoxie. I baby-sat his cousins while I was young. His aunt and uncle are my parents' next-door neighbors, and I've known his grandmother since I was small. When we got into high school, we had some classes together and we both were involved in athletics, where we got to know one another. We started dating around Valentine's Day of my senior year, 1991."
