Abbie's Story
Abbie was taken from this world she loved so much on May 18,2015 when she was hit by an unyielding driver as she crossed the street after school in Emmaus Pa.

As Abbies Mommy I will do whatever I can to make sure that Abbie is not forgotten & its a balancing act because we have 3 living kids that still need their Mom & dad and life for our family has forever changed . Gabrielle,Madison,& Vinny lost their little sister and we have all had to learn to live w/ the "new life" we didnt choose.
Abbies greatest Gift

When Abbie lived she LIVED life to the fullest w/ so much LOVE and she truly apprecited everything even the smallest gesture . you could always count on a hommeade gift from Abbie or note just to simply know how much she cared and loved . She has touched the lives & hearts of countless people that knew her and those that she never got the chance to meet and continues to impact countless lives..I get messsages from people that are/were strangers and tell me how Abbie is/has become a part of their lives . 

 When we lost Abbie we decided to donate her organs . If we could prevent just ONE family  from enduring pain like we have then what we did was a success . Abbies corneas were successfully transplanted into 2 people and they can now see the world ,one that had been dark until then. Abbies heart helped save a young boy and now he has a second chance at life thanks to her ultimate gift of life.

Abbie dreamed of becoming an Astronomer,she loved science ,she was fascinated by the solar system and the way everything works ,she loved soccer,drama club,singing,art,the color purple her friends ,her pup Sammy and Most of all her family . As her Mommy my heart is broken, life forever changed an emptiness that cannot be explained BUT I want her to be rememebered and her legacy to continue to grow . We have decided that a scholarship was one way that Abbie can be remembered and give back to the community that has helped us so much
