Dear Abby (the family of), I'm terribly sorry to hear that Abigail has passed. I grew up reading her column every day. She always gave the greatest replies to all who wrote to her. Mornings at first, then evenings every day. Now that there will be no more "Dear Abby"s, what will we do without her advice? She gave us the best years of her life, now we must ask something of Abigail, please R - I - P. You showed us the way for many, many years, thank you for that. Thank you for sharing yourself with millions of people daily. To the family, your memories will guide you through this period of mourning. "Dear Abby, You gave of yourself daily without ever griping, now is your special time. Rest In Peace. God Bless your family and friends, that they will have memories to carry them through. Thank you."
