Abbey certainly touched my life! I am so very sorry for the loss of this very special young lady. I had the privilege to be Abbey’s teacher at Hawthorne Hill and again each summer during her high school years. I will continue to think of her often and treasure the memories I have of her.

Our sincere condolences Kornis family .Ellen and Greg you are on our hearts and in our prayers.

Whenever Marlon and I would see Abbey at Christmas and other company parties and gatherings she was always smiling and joking around with her dad or others. She was clearly a girl full of joy and great humor. Abbey had accomplished and overcame so much in her short but well lived life. She had such wonderful loving parents and family that I know will miss her more than words could ever say. God bless you all and Marlon and I are praying for your heavy hearts.

I was so sorry to hear about the loss of Abbey. She was a sweetheart and we will all miss her karaoke fun. Prayers to you all.
