I was very disturbed when I heard about the passing of Abby. She was a very bright, kind, and beautiful young woman. I graduated with her. She had her whole future ahead of her and now she can't pursue any of her lifelong goals that she wanted to establish. All the sympathy in my world right now goes to Abby family and friends...

One of the sweetest souls I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Wish I could hear her ask me to sprinkle my "fairy dust" one more time. Fly high Abby

Abby was one of my first friends I made when I was in kindergarten. As the years we by, and our class got bigger we grew apart. I always thought of her and hoped the best for her. I will always cherish the memories I had with her when we were younger and send thoughts and prayers to her family. Rest easy beautiful.

Deepest Condolences to Abbys family. Words cannot express how heartbroken I feel. I worked with Abby at Edgewood. She was a go-getter and had a special way with people. It was impossible to be in a bad mood when she was around. She was always up to something. Prayers for comfort during this time.
