    We met Jim unfortunately when we made arrangements for the death of our 22 year old daughter, Jessica Marie Abate. We remember his soft voice and kind nature, and him telling us about his daughter Michelle who we could not imagine losing, and how much he loved his family and that he would pray for us. We send our deepest sympathies to Kim and Michelle and all of Jim's family. We're very sorry. Love, Peter, Regina, Angel Jessica, Christa, Elena, and Regina Abate.
