The Abbott Family Fund

If Ian were here, I am pretty sure he would say, "life isn't fair", and he would absolutely be right. Everyone knows that to be true and even if you did not know Ian, you know those words are accurate. For those of us who did know Ian, for however briefly, it is evident this world is a lesser place without him in it. But Ian did not just leave the world with one less friend, buddy, confidante, companion, intellectual, movie critic, and music aficionado - most importantly, he left a very loving wife, an amazing baby girl, and a wonderful little boy. 

Laura will now have to face a world without her lifelong companion in it, without her best friend to tell her a joke after a long day at work, and without a partner to help her raise their children.  

Isabella and Tony will now have to face a world without their doting father, with one less mentor, and without a second guardian to help guide them on their way through life. 

On behalf of Ian and his legacy, we feel it is important to help Laura and his children through this incredibly difficult time. Life does not stop just because someone you love has passed, afterall, life is not fair. Their family has gone from two incomes to one overnight. However, together we can provide Laura a safetynet that will help ease the worry about her family's financial stability.

These funds donated out of the generosity of your hearts, will help ensure Isabella can grow up to be as strong as Furiosa, just like her daddy wanted, and that Tony can be the awesome astronaut he is in the picture.  Aside from those fun goals, the funds gathered for Laura and the children will be used to provide for basic necessities, medical costs, and any other unforeseen expenses.  

Give what you can, when you can. Every little bit will help, no amount is too small, and every penny is appreciated.
