She was born in Dallas, TX on May 23, 2006 to Matthew and Marci Jean Womble Barnes. Abigail was a true social butterfly and loved being with friends at parties, school, and playdates above all. When you asked Abigail who was her best friend was, she would look puzzled and say "everyone in my class"! She loved her cat Big Ben and her dog Lucky and took great pride in their care every day. Abigail blessed us daily with her quick wit and larger than life personality. No matter what struggles she was facing Abigail found a way to light up a room and make you smile. She was strong and brave through all her medical challenges. Being Abigail's parents was an honor. She continuously taught us about life and faith and was the greatest joy of our lives.

I think of your family often and know that it takes a long time for the pain of a child passing to heal. I think of you often.

My heart breaks for you and for my dear friends, Betty and Dub. I have grand children and can't imagine their loss as well as yours. Please know that she is surrounded with love and sitting on God's knee. You have so many memories to keep her spirit alive on earth. From reading about Abigail, she was an Angel on earth and now an Angel in heaven!

Words can not express how heavy my heart is today. Although I never met Abigail I have known her wonderful parents for a long time and worked beside her father, a man of great character, for several years. I will keep the family in my daily prayers and I know in my heart she will light up heaven with the energy and love I see in these photos. God bless you all during this most difficult time.
