On Tuesday morning a Facebook page post from the official Abigail Arias- Officer 758's Cancer Fight page updated followers of her story with heartbreaking news. The post is as follows:
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Abigail Arias, the child who became an officer, a change agent for good and today, an Angel.
Abigail, also known as Officer Arias 758, went to be with our Lord early this morning surrounded by her family and friends.
Her love, compassion, and most importantly, her magnanimous spirit, will live on for generations to come.
It's both our duty and privilege to embody what Abigail taught us: to live life to the fullest, to never give up hope no matter the odds, to fight "the bad guys" passionately, and most importantly, to love one another - and always Stay Relentless!
According to Freeport Police an escort is being assembled at the Bucee's on Higway 288 in Angleton to escort the body of Abigail to the Westwood Funeral Home in Lake Jackson at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning.
