Rest in peace, sweet Abbey

Ally's little friend from her swim team, Abbey Taylor, was laid to rest this morning. She had much of her intestine sucked out by a pool drain last summer, and although she received a transplanted pancreas, liver and several feet of intestine, she suffered complications and died on March 20th. She was six years old.

Abbey will be greatly missed by Ally, as well as all the other girls in their lane.

Bless you, sweet girl.

I saw that a few days ago and thought of Ally!

It's beyond imagination despite how real it is!

That is so very, very sad. I never heard of this issue with pools until last summer and it seems to be sadly common and so tragic.

How very sad. I will be praying for the family and for your Ally. May she be comforted in God's mercy, and may your strength guide her through her grief.

God Bless and Keep you all!
