  • Abbie wasn’t just my neighbor, she was my friend. I spent many hours with her over this past year, our dogs, Dory and Murdock, were “besties” and we would laugh at their antics. Almost everyday we were together with the dogs in one another’s yards picking blackberries and vegetables in the summer. She made the best pumpkin rolls and cookies! We talked about recipes, garage sale finds and sewing projects. I will miss you very much Abbie because you were my friend.

  • Our deepest condolences Jeff and Family Sid and Ana

  • One of the dearest friends I ever had. It was shocking to find out you were gone. I’m really going to miss Abbie, she was a rare breed. She was a genuinely kind, soft-hearted, giving, selfless most generous person you could ever know. I cherish the times we had and I’m glad there’s no more suffering. Kisses and much love my dear friend Abbie. You will be very missed. Vinny I’m praying for you always and the rest of the family

  • My deepest sympathy andprayers go out to Vince and family. We are praying for Abbie and the whole D’Eletto family. Abbie will live on in all our fond memories of her. To me Abbie and Vince were a source of strenght for me to lean on when my wife Kathy passed. Abbie welcomed me int her home as if I was a brother. she often would make Kathy and our family pumpkin spice rolls at holidays or to lift Kathy’s spirits up. Even when she was ill she continued to work hard. She was determined not to let the awful disease get her down. I admired her so much for that strenght and above all courage!! I’m sure in Heaven Rudy is barking so loud because she is there and Abbie is probably telling Rudy “BE Quiet!!”. Abbie……We love you and you will be greatly missed and Thank You Thank You for being there when Kathy and I needed you the most! Please know that we will be there for Vince as he faces the difficul days ahead. Love you Abbie!!! Gene – Trevor – Rachel .
