My sincere condolences to Bills family. I worked with Bill in the early 80’s when we both were on the Quality Assurance team in home office. We were a great team and Bill was the nicest gentleman, RIP my friend.

My sincere deepest condolences to the Abraham family. I have no words for the loss and sadness you are all feeling, but know you are all within our thoughts and prayers and are here if you need. Mr. Abraham was a person that truly embodied grace, love and kindness. The first time I met Mr Abraham was for a engagement party for Matt and Lelia. He brightened a room, was gracious, fun, charismatic and always made everyone around him feel welcomed. He was an amazing man inside and out. My heart breaks for you all, keep faith and know that a soul as bright and beautiful as Mr. Abraham’s doesn’t ever leave. It gets brighter in the legacy he left behind. He will be with you always, watching and guiding you all. Rest In Peace Mr. Abraham and thank you for the beautiful mark you left upon me and so many others. With love and sympathy,
Keeley Phipps & family
