Dear Abby, Happy Birthday. We sent you some balloons today, a pink one a purple one and a blue one. We watched as they rose in the sky for you and we waved until we couldn't see them anymore. The kids were sure that god would catch them and give them to you. We think of you often and know that you are our own special angel. Aunt Debbie, Uncle Mike, Jacob, Meghan and Melissa

Dear Abby, It has been two years now since we lost you to SMA but you are still very much a part of or lives. Whenever we say our prayers, we think of you. Whenever we get together as a family, you are right there with us. You are our inspiration in everything we do. The best thing that ever happened to us was having you share your short life with us, and the worst tragedy for us was losing you on October 21, 2003. You will always be our Guardian Angel, watching over us and guiding us in everything we do. We love you and miss you Abby.  Grandma and Papa Loebach

I was so pleased to meet the two of you at the run. Sometimes it's hard to make a bear for a child that I don't know, but your web site allowed me to get to know Abby. I'm so glad you enjoyed the bear. I take to my four year old Granddaughter about your angel. Maybe one day she will want to help others as well. Much love Pattie

The website is a good way to honor the memory of Abby and to raise awareness of SMA. You sound like amazing people and Abby is blessed to have you as parents. Abby will watch over you and guide you through this next journey in your lives. Jeff would like to thank Dave for the support and time he spent listening to Jeff as our little boy spent time in the hospital. Danna and Jeff

My children and I found one of the balloons in my parents front yard. I read your story and I know how hard it is to watch a child go through a terrible illness/disease. It is hard not to be able to help except to love and hope it gets better and easier. My youngest is in remission from leukemia and I hope he makes it, but I know whatever happens he will know he is loved. I know that Abigail Lynn is in heaven with lots of other kids to play with. My parents live in East London near the airport, I don't know how far the balloon traveled before bursting. Take care and enjoy the memories of your angel and know she is always in both of your hearts. e

Dave and Jennifer, Hi,I know that this is a very hard day for you! We just went through Brettons first angel day on the 26th of Sept,but as the day went on I just kept thinking it is only another day because we already went through the hardest day of our lives. My thoughts are with you always as we have a connection even though we dont know each other! Just always know that you are never by yourself even though there are days that you probably think you are and all you have to do is look on sma angels and know that there are alot of angels up there looking after their mommies and daddys down here! Anyway Take care! Jisele (Angel mom to Bretton)

Dvae and Jenni You were the first thing we thought of today. Our thoughts and prayers are with you on this day. You were blessed for a short time with a beautiful baby girl but she made such an impact on our world. She was a very special little girl and now a beautiful angel. Our kids are very blessed to have some one so special to watch over them as their guardian angel. Our thoughts are always with you, Debbie, Mike, Jacob, Meghan and Melissa

Dave and Jennifer This website is such a wonderful way of telling the world how special Abby was and how precious her memory is to all of us who knew her. On this the first anniversary of Abby's passing, we wanted to reflect on and describe what Abby means to us. We were so privileged to have Abby spend most of her short life in our home, and we learned so much about life from her; how precious life is for those who are so fortunate to be healthy; how a beautiful little person can influence the lives of so many people; and how everything else in life is insignificant in comparison to the importance of family. You once told us that this was happening to Abby because she was a perfect girl, and you were right. And that is why we will never really lose Abby - she will always be part of our family for the rest of our lives as our perfect little person and our Guardian Angel. We love you Abby.

Jenny, I'm eternally grateful to you for making me set my "apprehensiveness" aside long enough to hold your daughter. Thank you.
