I will cherish my memories of my cousin Abby. His gentle kind heart, a humble man, loving respect and dedication to his family, hardworking and passionate about doing a job with pride and perfection. Abby opened my heart to my Love of horses. As kids the laughter and memories of visiting the farm and stay vacation. Recent memories rekindled; times shared on his beloved farm with Lori. I am so sad for his family. I will miss you Abby, forever in my heart.
Love cousin Chrissy
