Sue and the Abbott and Moynihan families,

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. A's passing. When she was volunteering she always brought smiles to everyone in Med Ed as always having one on her face too. She was a very special lady and will be missed by all. You all have a guardian angel looking over you called Mom or Grandma.

Aunt Helen was one of a kind and I always admired her spunk as the baby of five children. My father was so very fond of her, and they could joke and tease each other like crazy. When my father became ill, his baby sister Helen was on the next plane to come and visit him. More recently, Aunt Helen came all the way to Milton to attend Mom's 80th Birthday party. It was wonderful to see her, Pam and Ron. She shared some of her writings with me. She was one amazing woman with a strong Christian faith and I have no doubt whatsoever where she is right now! Mom and my brother Mike will be attending the visitation and funeral to represent the Amble Family. Hank and I send our love and sympathies to all the Abbott children and grandchildren. Love, Cindy Lukas, niece
