    Mrs. Abbott and her wonderful family were our neighbors during my “growing up” years. She was a lovely friend to my mother, Louise. They were involved in the PTA together, and whatever their children were participants. Dedicated to God and her family, there is no better legacy or role model. My prayers are with David and family.

    Dear Hank, Ann and David,
    I know a shout went up when your mom arrived home. I grieve with all the family for I know how deeply you will miss her. We will never forget the innumerable kindnesses she bestowed on mother and dad. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers. Gerald joins me in sending our love to you, Cynthia Myers Poole
