I am shocked to hear of Abby's death. We were good friends. Abby and I had a lot in common, both nurses and we shared views and opinions on so many things. Lately we had long phone conversations on the state of the world
I feel a great sense of loss, but I know that Abby was assured the best accomadations in the next realm. Mazel Tov , my dear friend. I love you and I miss you.
