I remember Mr. Abercombie as a very strong man who had a heart of gold! It saddened me to know that he has passed away but I also know that he is in a better place than we are. He will not be in anymore pain and no more sad or tears, he is rejoicing in heaven. I pray that God will comfort all of the family in this sad time.
