Your daughter is one fantastic young woman. So much more insightful than most with so many more years and understanding of life far beyond her years.

You are blessed but then you the one who are gave her the example to follow - be who she is and in the future to pass it on as you have done AND.will continue to.

Give her another big hug.

What a smart, beyond her years, young lady! But as I said before...she has a wonderful role model!

Abby is amazing, just like her mom! I still have tears in my eyes from reading it.

Please tell her how much her essay meant to all of us.

Hugs, Debi

I enjoyed reading it. And there was an emotion in every sentence she wrote. God bless her.

Linda, I have friends and family members (I think every one of us here does) decades older than Abby who have nowhere near Abby's honesty, maturity, and ability to articulate their feelings.

Children learn and absorb more from their parents than we realize -- it's perfectly clear to me that she learned how to be such a beautiful, mature young woman from you.

and hope Gabe and Abby and Karl are doing well.  Brandy, Linda died last summer.  I miss her and feel honored to have known her personally.  Doesn't seem like it's been almost a year since she's been gone.  Her family was what gave her strength.  Has anyone heard how they're doing?
