I never met Mr. Abbot or your family personally, but I wanted you each to know that he touched lives far and away thru his steadfast prayer life. So very thankful that he stood the gap for my daughter and her twin sons in their time of great need. I can imagine that your family all felt the same knowing that he was speaking forth life for each of you. Condolences to all in this journey.

I worked with Gary at H&RBlock for many years. His smile and kindness were genuine. Gary's love of God and his family was evident daily. He will be greatly missed and I pray his family finds comfort in knowing he and Evelyn are together again in their heavenly home.

We only knew Gary because he prepared our taxes, however we considered him a friend. We discussed family and shared many of the same values as well as love for the Lord. Gary's sweet spirit will be missed.
