Abigail was born into a French-American family, and grew up in Berkeley, California, before moving to Europe as a young woman. She lived in London with her Italian husband, Stefano, where she was a successful independent business consultant. She was a charming, loving person, and mother of two beautiful very young daughters, Chiara and Luna.
In December of 2013, at age 38, while pregnant with her second daughter, she was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer; she had never smoked. In January of 2016, she flew away.
After her diagnosis, every evening she would kiss her daughters goodnight, saying: 'Je t'aime beaucoup, beaucoup, beaucoup, beaucoup. Pour toujours.'
She taught us to appreciate each moment of our lives and will live in our hearts forever.
In loving memory of Abigail. You were the epitome of grace and love.
In loving memory of Abigail. My deepest condolences to the de Bresson-Leland family. Love, Edie

La separazione è molto dura, ma l'amore e i ricordi sono l'inno alla vita: piena, ricca di soddisfazioni, esperienze e felicità, vissute fino in fondo. Questo è il più bel messaggio che possa rimanere, pour toujours. Elena e Alessandro
