Last of her generation... my heart goes out to her kids and grandkids especially, know its been a rough couple months, then losing Mona just a couple weeks ago...

Great Aunt Abbie was always there for us as kids... Mom, Mike and I always had the utmost respect for her... growing up had some of THE best times visiting her and our cousins- the house on Easton before Uncle Jerry (Clifton) got cancer, later her and Jerry Hall's farms on Cleveland Massillon then the big farm and the store in Warsaw, lots of great memories... dinner time at the farm always felt like a episode from 'The Walton's'.... remember churning real butter, using real cream to make icecream, their pet raccoon, 'helping' with the livestock (city kids- we didnt do much), tunneling thru hay bales in the big barns, just hiking around with our cousins David and Darryl- Wes and Charles were a little older, usually working... the farms took a lot of work, but they took it all in stride and sure seemed to enjoy the farming life...

Rest in Peace Aunt Abbie... till we meet again
