Angle played softball for the last four years. Her parents say she loved spending time with her friends and listening to music.

Angle was lovingly referred to as "a pickle" by her softball coach Landon McNeill, who was with the girl's parents as they waited at a church for news about their daughter.

Angle's family also lost their home in the storm. However, her teammates collected money for her family in their time of need. They raised more than $37,000 and Direct TV has agreed to match $20,000.

Twenty-four people were killed and hundreds were injured as the massive tornado tore through the Moore area. About 12,000 homes were affected.
