This fundraiser is dedicated to our beloved family member Abigail Gulotta. She had an infectious kind spirit, a tremendous heart for all in her life, and an unrelenting love of all that life offers. And through it all, she notably found purpose and companionship with her cats. Abigail adored cats and was dedicated to providing a nurturing and loving home for them. She also had a passion for books. 

With this in mind, her family would like to donate funds to the places and things she cherished most. Funds raised here will be donated to the Bellingham Humane Society and any other organization dedicated to providing a safe and loving home to all cats, as well as donations to the Bellingham Public Library. 

Please leave your favorite and positive memories of Abigail on here for her family to enjoy and celebrate her life.

Pretty Abigail, I sadly have just learned of your untimely passing tonight. We grew up together on Stevens Street in Tacoma alongside Jimmy, Peggy, Abigail, Michael and Troy. Your mother Peggy was my mother's dearest friend during her lifetime. Peggy also sadly departed this world prematurely crushing my mother. My mother passed just as unexpectedly and went to join your mother a couple of years ago, and I sure they have been giggling like teenagers ever since they hooked up once again somewhere on a cloud. We went our separate ways long ago, but you are not forgotten. I know you have joined members of your family in a much kinder and sweeter place. Through your loss, there is a deep sadness for the years that might have been, and also a sadness that this is such a sick and tragic world we each just try to live out our lives in day by day, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. This day brought absolutely tragic and senseless circumstances. I see that you have touched many people along the way with your spunk, kindness, compassion, and a love for animals that brings its own unique and unconditional rewards. You left many fond memories with others who knew and loved you. I know without question because of the legacy of your life, you are now safely and peacefully resting in the hands of angels.

I first met Ab when we moved in the house across the street from her. She was in 5th grade and I was in 6th. I looked out my bedroom window and she was dancing on the top of their picnic table located in their side yard patio. She was wearing white go go boots and looked like she was imitating Goldie Hawn of the show Laugh-in. I thought to myself, what a character. We became best friends. We liked baking desserts, sewing clothes, and talking about boys. If we were not at each other's house, we were talking on the telephone to each other . I like to think she got her start in beauty school at our family's home. My sister, Jennifer, and I would cut each other's hair. We soon had Ab in the mix. The two of us had fun in middle school, high school, and later college. She often visited me at the U of W. After I married and moved to the east coast we lost touch with one another. Then I met up with her again when she lived in New Hampshire. She was still the beautiful, fun, girlfriend that I remembered from my childhood. Sassy, loving, outgoing, truthful, funny is how I remember her.

I was a coworker of Abigail. But we didn't just work together. That Salon/Spa was my very first salon I worked at after I graduated Beauty School. I had the pleasure to train with Abigail. She showed me everything I needed to know about keeping shop and clients in tip top shape!! She had such a passion for her work and truly loved everyone she was around!! She was so open and friendly the first time I had met her at my first interview. She instantly showed me around the salon and showed me the amazing back bar was where they had kept all the amazing hair color and formulas!!! She seen my passion as well and that was it. She took me under her wing and showed me everything!! Even Fairhaven. I was new to the location and one day she took me on a tour and introduced me to all the friendly locals. And even brought me to her favorite place to get coffee!! Everyone loved seeing her and loved catching up with her. She was someone that I totally looked up too. We also shared a day together in Seattle, it was my very first time driving to and in the big city. And she was proud to have shared that moment with me. We got to spend the day in Seattle at an Aveda color class together. She was the funniest, comforting, and passionate women I have ever met in the industry. And I am proud to say what I had learned from her will continue on without her being present. She taught me amazing work ethic and an amazing way to really connect with each individual client. We were able to share special moments throughout the day together. Not to mention we really scored because she would teach me valuable skills, and I would teach her up to date technical skills. I am so thankful I was able to share my opening and start to my career with her guiding me. I wouldn't trade it for the world. Thank you so much Abigail!!!! Your work ethic and determination will continue even though you had to start a different job as an angel, lord knows he got a good one :) Love you lady xoxo
