Dear Abbott family, friends and fans: My deepest, most heartfelt reguards go to you all. I have been a long time fan of Dimebag, and his music was inspirational to people around the world. He gave me an outlet for my emotions, and helped me through a lot of tough times, as well as millions of other people. This was sincerely an untimely tragety that has shocked the planet. I as well as you and all of his fans have yet to realize that this is true. Dimebag was truly a legend, not only in music but as a person as well. I have not had the privlege of meeting him personally, however I hear nothing but fantastic things about him. I have seen him in concert about 3 or 4 times with his former band Pantera, here in Chicago and it completely blew my socks off. The way he plays guitar and the ways he made it sound was truly phenonamal. It was like he was singing.... My deepest reguards to your families from mine. May you find comfort and solace this holiday season. Easier said than done I know. Vinny, my heart goes out to you for having to witness this tragety. I know you and your brother were inseperable and nothing will compensae te for your loss. You loss a brother, I lost someone that touched me in a personal way that helped me. Granted I never knew, but I have been a fan of you guys for 15 years, since I was a kid. My mom used to jam Pantera. I'm 21 now. Insread of going to Las Vegas, My plan was to come to Dallas and party it up at your club. Nonetheless, my gratitude to the parents of Darrell and Vinvent for bringing such wonderful, inspiring, warm, kind and most down to earth people into this world. God Bless you all during this sad time. Thank you for this oppournity.Sincerely, Viola R.
