Regular readers will recognize "Abby's Book Corner" posts. Abigail "Abby" Kearney was my goddaughter who passed away from meningitis in 2008. Her parents have been working to build a library in her honor in Dallas.
They have been holding book drives for hospitals in Dallas and San Antonio. Now I am heading a Houston book drive benefiting the Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.
