I have so many wonderful memories with Abraham but I wanted to share a few of my favorites. We loved to sew outfits together for our weekend adventures and make candy jewelry while listening to ridiculous music. I loved vising him at his parents house and listening to the original Broadway soundtrack of RENT in his room while he sang his heart out! He had the most amazing voice. It was hilarious to watch him be a drill sergeant while he coordinated a group of teenagers learning dances for a quince.
Abraham was part of me becoming myself and he taught me to love life and live it to the fullest. I am forever grateful to him for that. I love you Abe.

So many of my favorite memories are with Abe. I was at his and Jerry’s place practically every weekend, and at one point I was there so much, the question wasn’t are you coming over, it was, what time are you getting here! Whether it was a planned game/ movie night with friends, or just a laid-back weekend enjoying each other’s company, I always had fun with him. We’d share secrets and he’d tell me how much of a hoochie I was being, but that I needed to go out more and just “live my life”. He’d cook delicious meals and loved seeing us eat them up. He was the BEST host- even if I was the only one going over. There was never a shortage of laughs, jokes, smiles or fun when my time was spent with Abe. And even in the times we shared a few tears together, in the midst of our watery eyes, he’d always find a moment to break it up with something funny or witty, and we’d just bust out laughing and give each other a hug and say, “I love you”. He had a “way” about him that was so welcoming and unique, and I am so grateful to have shared such a special friendship with him. He was truly one of a kind, and I will miss him very much. ❤️
