Abigail was born on November 9, 2006 and was a home schooled eighth grade student. She had a sweet and spicy personality, and was a very private person. She enjoyed reading, lying in bed, taking four-hour baths, drawing and painting, and going on late night spur of the moment adventures. She loved the bands BTS and Slip Knot, and hanging out with "The Hemorrhoids" (special friends). Abigail was one of a kind, and will be deeply missed.
