Big Ang Funeral: Brittany Fogarty Talks Being Banned
“I think that it’s unfortunate that I couldn’t be at any of Ang’s services this weekend, and that I couldn’t say bye to her in that way,” Fogarty revealed.
“The last thing that I would want is to go there and cause a scene,” she continued. “This is about celebrating Ang’s life and the fact that her family has to say bye to such a beautiful person and I want to respect that.”
On being banned, Fogarty said, “I was called on Saturday, by a mutual friend, and told not to attend the services because of something my father did. I was in my car heading over and pulled over and started hysterically crying. I was already upset because I was headed to her services, but pulled over and cried hysterically when I found out I couldn’t go.”
“I was really taken aback when I received the call,” she added. “I was not expecting it at all. Ang never judged me for the actions of my father. The fact that he cooperated with police never influenced her opinion of me, and I loved her for that.”
“I don’t want to make this about me, or about what my father did,” she elaborated. “I understand that this is what happens in our world. I don’t think it’s right to punish me for something that I had no part of, but if that’s what will make this easier for Ang’s family, then that’s what I want to do.”
“I don’t think that’s what Ang would have wanted,” Fogarty wrapped with saying, “but that’s how it is. I’m going to have to say bye to her on my own time, I’m going to visit the cemetery this week and go pay my respects and say goodbye to Ang in that way. This service is about her family saying goodbye.”
