Mr. MILLER of Florida. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the
distinguished life and service of Mrs. Angelina Tabbitas Larsen. Mrs.
Larsen, known by those in the community as ``Angel'', was born July 28,
1941 to Nunzio and Frances Tabbitas in Brooklyn, New York, and for the
past few decades, Mrs. Larsen has called Northwest Florida home. She
will be missed by many, but her memory will live on through the
timeless legacy she leaves behind.
Mrs. Larsen spent her life in service to God and country. For twenty years, she dedicated her time to serving the brave men and women of our Armed Forces at the Pensacola USO Centers. Through her support and gratitude, she had the ability to lift spirits and bring warmth and merriment to our troops and their families.
To some, Mrs. Larsen will be remembered for her commitment to our nation's heroes; to others, she will be remembered for her strong faith in God and as a fellow member of Kingsway Church. To her family and friends, she will be remembered for Nana's Sunday dinner gatherings and as a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great- grandmother.
On behalf of the United States Congress, I am honored to recognize the life and service of Mrs. Angelina Tabbitas Larsen. My wife Vicki joins me in extending our thoughts and prayers to her husband, Bob; daughter, Jeannie; sons, Salvatore, Mario, and Edward, and the entire Larsen family.
