Abigail Elizabeth Campbell was born on Sept. 19, 2008 and died on Thursday, July 23, 2015, at her home with her family by her side.

Her life would seem short for many but those touched by her understood the quality of existence exceeds the quantity of time which one lives. Abigail was a sassy and enthusiastic little girl with determination that was amazing. She loved her family and had them wrapped around her finger. She had a way of bringing people together. Her smile and laugh would brighten anyone’s day. Abigail never went anywhere without someone telling her how beautiful her blonde curly hair was or comment on her stylish outfits. Among her favorite things to do were going out for ice cream and going to school at The Children’s Center. Abigail accomplishments at school made her strive every day to learn more.
