Faith, love and caring nature define Pat Abeling

Pat Abeling is special because of her faith, her love and caring nature.
She’s so special, in fact, that the Crittenden resident was nominated not just by one family member, but a whole herd of family members.
“My mom, Pat Abeling, is a special valentine because of her uncondidtional love for her family and friends. She’s truly inspiring. Her faith and love for Christ shows in her kindness and generosity and is an example for us all.

My mom always has a smile on her face, especially when her grandchildren are around. When they give her hugs you would think she just won the lottery. She always has good advice and even at my age I need all the help I can get,” wrote Joey and Rena.
“I would like to tell everyone about a special valentine, my granny Pat Abeling. She is my best friend and she loves me a lot. She is very nice to me and my brothers. My granny taught me that I have the ‘super powers of love’ and when she gets low she needs me to power her up,” wrote Mason Abeling.

“My granny is awesome. She’s the best thing. She cooks for us. She got me almost everything I wanted for Christmas. She is a nice mother to my pap-paw and my two uncles. I wouldn’t want another granny because my granny is perfect,” wrote SkyAnne Paige Allnutt.
“She is not the typical mother-in-law. I have the best mother-in-law in the entire world. Pat is the most kind, caring, patient, thoughtful, helpful and a wonderful role model. I have been a part of this wonderful family since March of 1979. I was involved in a car accident in 1984.

I couldn’t walk for 10 months or have the use of my left arm for six weeks. My father-in-law, Joe Abeling was at my beside everyday after work while I was in the hospital. Pat was with me during the day while my husband worked. She took care of me and her granddaughter. She was with me through the many surgeries and took me to my doctor appointments. She did this until I was able to take care of myself. I am so blessed. I firmly believe I would not be the person I am today had I not received her guidance and presence in my life,” wrote Kimberly Harris of Corinth.

“When I was only 3, my mother was in a very bad car accident, that included my mom in a wheelchair being told that she may never walk again. There was a long road to recovery and many surgeries ahead.

One thing I remember is my grandmother (Pat Abeling) being there to help my mother with daily chores my mom wasn’t able to do at the time, taking care of me and my dad,” wrote Jennifer Allnutt of Dry Ridge.
