John was the most humble, down-to-earth guy I've ever known. He has been a positive influence on my life since we first met during my college days. He knew how to share his insight and wisdom in a way that made people look at their world in a different light. Words cannot express my shock regarding his sudden passing. My thoughts and prayers continue to be w/ Paula, Brandon, Ian, and their families during this difficult time.

John was such a refreshing person to know. No matter what was happening, John always saw the silver lining in everything. I thoroughly enjoyed our chats, lunches, everything that we did together over the many years at TNN/CMT. To Paula and the entire Abbott family, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

When my small children asked who John Abbott was, I told them "He was the first person who ever always treated me nicer and nicer every day of his and my life...no matter what."

I will miss our chats at work. John was a friend and amazing talent. He was special in so many ways. He loved the life he was living and left this world way too soon. Paula and family, your pain is shared by many and you're very much in my thoughts and prayers.
