Condolence & Memory Journal

Candle

It saddens me deeply that I will no longer have P.O. Abbott present in his place of honor at my table during our large framily gatherings and game nights. I knew him to be knowledgeable about so many things not only as a well-read scholar, but also as a man who had lived a full and adventurous life. I revered his stories about old Austin, as once a sleepy little college town that came to be defined by its famous musicians, literary giants and rising politicians. We often talked about good books we had read or obscure movies we had seen. Conversations with P.O. always delighted and entertained me right up until this last year when his hearing began to fail. Still his ever-present sense of humor prevailed; he would burst out into contagious belly laughter if I repeated myself at a higher volume and at a closer distance. Write it down, he would say and often I did. As I'm writing this down today, I have blessed assurance P.O. that you hold a place for me as well as all of our framily members at our Father's table.

PO was a wonderful person. Kind, intelligent, and witty. We will miss his presence at our family gatherings. Myles Miller and the Miller family.
