My condolences go out to the Abbott family. The Abbott’s are a special neighbor to the Whitaker’s. The Abbott’s and Whitaker’s shared a baseball field and growing a vegetable garden. I have many fond memories with Ken,Keith and Kimball. We had fun with just playing catch or getting the neighborhood kids together for a game. Thanks for the memories. I am so sorry for your loss.
