January 20, 2013
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Jeanne and Ed,
I went to Campus School with you and was a dear friend of Margo's. I remember playing at your house once in awhile and still remember David and Bathesba!!!!! I followed both Eppie and Popo through the years and am saddened that the world has lost both of them. Our family went through the long "goodbye" associated with Alzheimers and know how the family of a loved one suffers throughout this sad journey.

Oh, I also remember your Mom and Dad, Eppie and Jules coming to see the EC Bears play baseball---two terrific ladies, two wonderful mothers. Our loss in God's gain. May peace be with you and yours during this difficult time.

The memories of Dear Abby and Dear Ann Landers are of a day long gone. They take us back to a time of innocence and blissful ignorance.

They ( Dear Abby & Dear Ann Landers ) were our safety net before the internet! Thanks girls ! Signed, Anonymus in the USA

January 18, 2013
Dear Abby, I want to thank you for all those wonderful years of advise.. As a teenager I would run home and wait for the new paper only wanting to read your column first.. You were the second mother to all of us young girls who were afraid to ask mom.. Many times you would redirect us back to mom.. I grew up on your advice and passed it on many times to my children, friends and coworkers.. many would say you read that from Dear Abby... but you helped so many people with good sound advice,God Bless you for that.. I pray your family will find that peace that passes all understanding in the days and months ahead as they continue to remember all those many wonderful years they enjoyed with you.. Try to remember now how she left this world but instead remember her legacy that will live on for a very long time in our hearts. Abby went home and was received in the loving arms of her Heavenly creator and family... From D in Easton

January 18, 2013
I grew up reading Ann Landers. I first read Dear Abby when I was in the military. One could tell the difference between the two slightly. When I first read her column I figured it was the same person, just changed her name for a different paper. I enjoyed reading both. Dear Abby seemed to have more of the common person touch. Its a sad to see both of the m gone. Be rest assured to all those folks out here they helped, they will never be forgotten. My Condolences to the Family.
January 18, 2013

Growing up, our local paper carried Ann Landers, but both sisters had the same good-hearted philosophy. Remember when a good majority of our society was respectful and polite enough to worry about and write someone for advice when they weren't sure how to conduct themselves? RIP Dear Abby... and to her daughter Jeanne- Keep it going, you have inherited your mother's wonderful values and wit. Condolences on the loss of your mother.

Jeanne and family, I am sorry for your loss. In the 1960s, my mother and your mother had weekly hair appts in St. Paul at "Horst of Austria". My mother would report craning her neck under the dryer to see the letters on the lap of the hard-working "Dear Abby" whose hair was drying under the next dryer over! Your mother made a difference,didn't she!
January 17, 2013
Abigail Van Buren or Dear Abby was a force for some standardization of culture and work habits. I admit that I read her columns, and some times followed her dictums. She was a decent person, who will be missed!
