    We are so very sorry to hear of the passing of little Abby. We were honored to be able to meet you last December 2009 when we brought over some gifts of cheer. I remember that you had just brought Abby home from the hospital for Christmas and you were so thrilled to have her home with you and your sons. I had the little Christmas ornament with Abby’s picture on our tree again this year. Our thoughts are with you at this very difficult time.

    Sincerely from All of Us.

  14. I am so sorry to read of Abby’s passing..
    I always admired how well you handled Abby’s illness. You always made sure that her illness did not define her, but that she was a little girl with things she liked and didn’t. Although I only met her the once I could see that fiesty spirit that was so well nurtured by you. Just as you defined her life, so will you her passing, that it is not about her illness but about her life, and the joy she brought to you all. I was not able to attend the service yesterday but was praying for you. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers and pray for comfort and peace for you.
    Eileen
