Abby enjoyed her job, cooking, painting, and baking with her mom. She was just becoming the independent young woman she was raised to be.
She loved hanging out with her big brothers, Chinese take out, taking weekend trips with her mom, and was an avid collector of monster high dolls through her life.
Blessed to have shared her life was her mother, Brenda K. Greer, her father Randall S. Gilkerson (passed away when she was 5), her brothers, Daniel M. Gilkerson, and Samual J. Gilkerson.
