I remember Michael Abbott as being an easy going tolerant man. I was at a difficult time in my youth and The Abbott family showed me kindness and generousity and never did I feel unwelcome or judged. I offer my most sincere condolances although late.
may god watch over and bless The surviving members of Michaels family. Roger Femia
