"I wish there was an expiration date to missing someone but I had almost 25 great years of having an awesome dad and I feel as though I know what he'd be saying right now," Abigail added. "I think [it would] be somewhere along the lines of 'why ya crying kid? I'm fiiiiiiine. Don't worry about me! Love you, pretty.' "
Closing out her message, Abigail wrote: "To anyone who's missing someone this holiday season I see you, I hear you and you're not alone."
