We are sincerely saddened by the loss of such an amazing woman. Although we did not get to know her as close as many, my father, step mother, and my best friend growing up all spoke nothing but kind words about her. My condolences to the Abbott family including my dearest friend Rocki. We send our love to you all, The Archipolo Family
