Mr. Abbott was a man who made a tremendous difference in my life over a three year period when I studied and lived in Roanoke (VA.) I was just 18 years old when I met Mr. Abbott. Today, I'm 52. Thornton and Creasy Drugstore was where I worked.

I worked with Tom in the Super x days and then was lucky enough to work with him again at National Diabetic Pharmacy. He was one in a million and my life was enriched by knowing him. Prayers to the family.

Tom was a great mentor to me at National Diabetic Pharmacies, he will be missed by so many people. It was an honor to have known and worked with him, such a joy to see his smiling face in the mornings to start our day. He would give me a peppermint patty and say "here, looks like you could use this" knowing I was having a tough day. Bless the entire family and I am truly sorry for your loss. Kathy McDaniel

Carol, Michael and Aunt Josephine,

What a beautiful tribute for Uncle Tommy. It was so wonderful to have him for 90 years. I have so many fond memories of him when I was a child and through the years. I was so glad to see him as recently as this past May. Our prayers are with you and your family. Carlisle and I will be in Roanoke Friday afternoon and will call you when we arrive. I hope Aunt Josephine is okay.



So Sorry for the families lost. I was blessed to have known Mr. Abbott and his family while I worked at the Roanoke such a great man. Sending my deepest condolences. Kathy H.
