Dear Dear Anna Williams. My deepest sympathies are with you. To lose a child is not a part of the natural course of nature. We are to go before our children but sometimes it is not that way. I know how you feel. Only The good Lord can lift us up in these times and carry us through these horrible trials. This child has touched my heart and humbled me in ways I never thought possible. My payers are for you for mercy and comfort. God bless you. Faith Hodge - Dunmor, Kentucky

Dear Abigail, I didn't know you but you and your friend Liberty are in my thoughts daily. You are now with your creator and he is surrounding you with all the Love and Peace that he promises us after we leave this earthly existence. I have faith in this and that you will be joined again with your mother there . I watched an interview your mother gave and you were so loved by her. She is so strong and brave and misses you. You must be so proud of her. You were both blessed to have each other.

Abigail, What does one say to a young person such as yourself? You could tell me so much more I am sure. For you are in heaven, where it is all good, loving and peaceful. Where there are no more pain and suffering. You are with your best pal Liberty, and I just know you're both enjoying heaven together. One day all your friends and family will be there to enjoy all there is to heaven with you. The days on this earth will surely pass by us all, but you never have to be concerned about that for you Abigail are in beautiful, restful and peaceful heaven, God Bless.
March 21, 2017
We will never understand why these things happen, but we do know she is with Jesus and Abby is now experiencing eternal peace. No words can take away your pain, but know that even for us that never met Abby, she has touched our hearts.
March 21, 2017
I didn't know you, Angel Abby, but I have prayed for you and your family every day since you went away. I am quite certain that you are in the arms of Jesus and in a place so beautiful and peaceful that you never want to leave. I am a mother and grandmother, and I pray for your family, for your sweet mama - for comfort, peace and faith that you will all be together soon and very soon.

Abbie, it is evident in all of your pictures that you were a sweet, gentle soul, and had a zest for life and the outdoors. I can only imagine what a joy you were in the lives of your family and friends. I'm holding your family, and that of Libby's, in my prayers. I'm sure that you and Libby are enjoying the lakes, rivers and trees of a far more beautiful location. Fly high, little angel.
