Deanna and I grew up in the Fruitdale area along 44th Ave in Wheat Ridge. As kids, we would walk to Abners Market or Edwards Meats for a candy bar or a Popsicle. We have fond memories of those days when things were much simpler and safer. We will miss seeing Abner after church on Sunday mornings at Georges Cafe. It will not be the same since he and his wife Billie were frequent customers at Georges.. Abner was always willing to offer some witty humor or sound advice. We looked forward to seeing them each Sunday. Deanna and I will truly miss him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Abner.

I remember when we first moved into the neighborhood, about 38 years ago, Abner's market on the end of the street. We learned early about his integrity and love for people. Our oldest son, Matt, wanted to buy his Mom something for Mother's Day. He came home with a nice plant. I knew he didn't have enough to pay for it, so I went down to cover the money Matt didn't have. Abner told me, "That was a deal I made with Matt and I didn't need to pay for anything". He was a fair and friendly person, businessman and a follower of Jesus Christ. He made an impact on the community and will truly be missed. Joan and David Amdahl
