Another month Dec. 4th I am having a real hard time this month without you. I remember the last Christmas tree we got, you wanted a big one. You, John and mark fighting with it to get it lever before getting it in the house. It was the best one we had in a long time. Another time I will not forget was when Nakota was a pup and you and John left her in the house to go to the store. You guys thought it was ok tel you got back and she knocked it over and broke a lot of the ornaments. You and John tryed to get it back up before I got home. When I walked in the house I asked what happened to the tree. You told me what she did, that tree was a mess but good memmeries. Later that night John was on the couch a sleep and she knocked the tree right on top of him. The other thing you couldn't do was wait for Christmas, most of the time I got my gift before. I love and miss you like crazy. It hurts so bad right now.

It is now Nov. 4th its now been 3 mo. Time is going by fast I miss our talks. I remember this was your favorite time of the year. You loved the smell of thanksgiving. Even though you didn't cook on that day. You would always sneak food and you would base the turkey; so you could say you had a hand in it. You always loved to mess with me by saying the stove did a great job. I got to a point that was a compliment to me. Love and miss you so bad. I love you bab.

Halloween is always my thing jim always got a kick out of me. I love to dress up and he would shack his head and say I am crazy and I know he love it. He always wanted to know what is was going to be and when he could he would help me decorate and always give me good ideas. I will always miss that. Love you and miss you!

My dear love it's now been two months, it still feels like it was today. We got good news today though for once. But I still miss you. I will never be whole again. I miss your wise cracks at me. I miss our talks, I talk to you all the time but I don't hear anything. I am not crying every day now but I still hurt. A very big part of me died that day with you. I wish you where here to enjoy the news we got today, we are getting a new grandbaby. Now that should keep me busy and with 2 weddings. They are going to miss you in these moment in their lives. Everyone thinks i am strong, i am not really, just learning. Love you so much- the love of my life.

November 1992 I got home from school, gene Jim's brother said he was going to watch the kids. I said watch the girls for what, all he would tell me that jim and I where going out to dinner alone. Jim took me to Lions resteraunt. We where just sitting there talking and had just ordered our drinks. I wasn't paying that much attention to what you where doing, just remember my spot light was interrupted, you pulled out the ring as the waitress brought the drinks. You asked me if I wanted to merry you and she said o how sweet. I remember looking at her and how I was just happy. She walked away and I could hear her telling people. I leaned over the table and said yes and I love you and kissed you. Then I said after dinner we where going to my show mom and dad; Jim told me that was already in the plan.

With deepest sympathies to the Abbott Family, during your time of grief I hope you will find peace and comfort in the words found at Psalms' 55:22.

The first night jim met my dad. I asked my dad if he would watch the girls so I could go out on a date. My dad didn't beleive that I was gout out with someone. The door bell rang, dad and I raced to the door. I didn't want dad to scare him off. That when dad said he need a hair cut but a nice guy. Later jim told me it sounded like a Hurd of elephants and he was about to take off. After that date was over he said he was glad he didn't take off and then we had our first kiss.

The first trip we took in our 5wheel. That night at Kamp Klamith Redwoods I was worried someone or something would get inside. You hit the cabinet next to you and I jumped out of bed so fast, you where just rolling. You use to get a kick out of me at the camp fire being like a kid with marshmallows. I always had to have a camp fire and marshmallows, you made sure I had them. I love you

I am so sorry for your loss, loosing a loved one is never easy. However, Psalms 46:1 reminds us that God is our refuge and if we rely on him he will give us all the comfort you need in times like this.
Monday, August 13, 2012
My deepest sympathies to your whole family. I hope you can find comfort during this time. Love you guys!

You are the best friend and brother thank you for all the good times, even when things where going bad. For me you always made me see good things in all of it. You will always be in my heart and beside me to help me get along. Eugene Brandt and Jim Abbott

Jim
There comes a point in your life when you realize that nothing will ever be the same, and you realize that from now on…Before this and after this.
Remembering all the good times before this, fills my heart with joy to have known and be loved by you. And I can assure you that your memory will live on through us after this.
Jim is a hard person to describe in on word, because he was so many things to me. He was a hard worker, protector, provider, advisor, role model, funny. So if I had to choose a word to sum him up, I choose “Father”.
There were some difficult times between him and I, but none the less he never gave up on me. He was always there for me even at times when I didn't want him to be. He believed in me, and because he stood by my side through it all, my world is a better place.
I can't express the amount of gratitude and respect I have for him. He made things possible for our family and never limited to how far we could reach. I hate to admit that I never understood any of it till now. And it saddens me to say good bye for now, but one day we will meet again and when we do, I'll make sure he knows that he's the reason why, my life was so blessed. I could go on forever with all the unsaid words between us, but because of those last few moments we had together I know in my heart he already knew. I will miss him terribly, but I won't let him down. I will continue to make him proud and be the daughter he helped raise.
I love you dad. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for everything.
Monday, August 13, 2012
Dear Dad,
This is your daughter Matilda I remember meeting you the first time when I was 6. I was scared but that day on I loved you. You were the best thing in the world to me. You were like a super hero to me. When I got older we had different lives but in my heart I always had you there. You are my heart, my soul, my world. You are my dad and the best I will have.
Love you dad I don't want to say bye but for now I will and we will see each other again

Jim
The first time I saw Jim was with Katharine and they inter dusted him to me; I said you need a haircut. I could not have asked for a better son-in-law. He was always ready and willing to jump right in and help. I will dearly miss him.
Monday, August 13, 2012
To my brother
When people turned their backs on me, you never did, when there was no love in my life, you should me love. When I was down you gave your hand. Most of all Jim is my brother, well fever you will be missed by me; I gave my promise to you forever I will keep that promise
Monday, August 13, 2012
Jim My love
The love of my life, I think of you all the time. You are gone but not forgotten. Although we are apart your spirit lives within me, forever in my heart. Our love story never ends. If only my love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. Right now I am only happy your pain is gone. Two hearts beat as one, now broken apart tell we meet again. I will cherish all our memories thank you for being my love.
I love … my soul mate, my husband, my lover, my partner, my friend, , my everything! I can't wait to see you again.
Your loving wife

The broken chain
We little knew that morning that god was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same. If broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day god called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as god calls us one by one, THE CHAIN will link again.
Monday, August 13, 2012
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love and you can only guess,
how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
but now it's time I traveled on alone.

So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must.
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart.

I won't be far way, for life goes on,
So, if you need me call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near.
And if you listen with your heart,
You'll hear all my love around you soft and clear.
Katharine Abbott

I'll love you forever big brother. Wish I could have gotten to know you better. I'll miss you always.
Thursday, August 09, 2012
I remember Jim saying you are so important to him. He loves you. He wears your heart on his sleeve. Never forget that.

Jimmy is hiding in a white forest now, free from pain. I imagine him sitting in a chair with a rifle in his hand, cursing but having memories of everyone that's crossed his path in life. I wish heaven had visiting hours.

- Hugs to you, Katharine.
Thursday, August 09, 2012
Katharine, I know there are no words that anyone can say that will take away the pain of your broken heart. Cherish the memories that you have as no one or nothing can take those from you. May God help your broken heart to mend quickly. We love you and will continue to keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
