So sorry to earn of Abby's passing. She was a sweet and lovely little girl, a good friend of my daughter Holly since they attended the Paupack School together. Abby's life reflects her good nature and unselfish character.

I went from grade school all the way PSU with Abby, though I never really got to see her there in college. I have very fond memories of what a wonderful, fun, caring, and thoughtful person she was through those years. It is very sad that she has passed on, but she will live on in the hearts of all the people that knew her.

We have no words to ease your sorrow and pain; no answers for the question "Why". Just know we love you all and hold you close in our hearts. We will never truly lose Abby if we keep the memory of her alive and teach Katelyn and Leo what an amazing,strong and yes, stubborn young woman their Mommy was.

I wanted to pass my deepest condolences to you and your family for your loss. I know you don't know who I am. I am cousins with Doug and Pat Kneiss in Taylor, PA. They made me aware of your situation because I actually work in the same building you worked at in Brooklyn, NY (335 Adams) and I work for Motorola. I never had an opportunity to meet you but I inquired regularly about you and your wife with some of your co-workers during elevator rides. I just found out from my cousin of your loss and I cannot tell you how sorry I am. My wife lost her Mom to this terrible disease only 6 weeks after our marriage. May God Bless you and your family. May she rest in peace.
