Eleanor: Mother and I were sad to hear about Bill's death!
I will always remember Bill's colorful stories about Louisville, particularly those concerning Mother and Frances Burns!...Much Love!...Frances Abbot Powers and Julia Abbot Horner, 12[12[09.

Eleanor, Lil always said you were "the ONE for Bill"- so it was. All the Abbots will remember him for his unique humor, and his joy of knowing George better than anyone else in the world-50 Volumes!!

Eleanor, Betsy and I have been out of town for over six weeks and have only learned of Bill's death. We are so sorry and send our sympathies.

To Eleanor, Bill Abbott was indeed one of the finest teachers . He taught me so much about research and I will be forever grateful to him. I worked for him for four years and thought of him as a friend. My deepest sympathies. I too mourn his loss. My deepest condolences and prayers. Nancy Morris

Dear Eleanor, Wright and John,
I was saddened to learn of Bill's death. Bill and Jim were truly stalwarts of their generation, and their legacies will endure. Please know that you are in my prayers and thoughts during these dark days.

Dear Mrs. Abbot and family,
Dr. Abbot gave me a job many years ago when I was a bride, and I am always grateful for that wonderful opportunity. He was a fellow Georgian and "knew" me well. I can attribute a lot of my work ethic and skills to my time spent with him as a great mentor at the Washington Papers. He will be greatly missed.

Dear Eleanor and Family,
Emily and Richard join us in sending deepest sympathy and love always.

To Eleanor, Wright, Cynthia, John, Will and Katherine,

All my love. All of us in Georgia and California are in mourning and wish so much we could be with you.

Dear Mrs. Abbot and family,
I was so saddened and heartbroken to learn about the passing of Mr. Abbot. I will miss him very much. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
