She befriended Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey at the department’s “Pancakes with Santa” event in December 2018. She told him her dream of becoming a police officer. The chief made her dream come true in February when she became Officer Arias Badge # 758.

Fans have dressed up as Abigail for Halloween. Others wrote songs for her. In October, Abigail’s family and Garivey shared that her condition had worsened, and doctors were considering hospice care, reported local TV Station KTRK. But even as she was dying, she managed to have fun and do good. On Tuesday November 5, 2019 Abigail passed away surrounded by her family and her Blue Familiy. Garivey wrote in a Facebook post: “To live life to the fullest, to never give up hope no matter the odds, to fight ‘the bad guys’ passionately, and most important, to love one another — and always stay relentless!” 50 The BLUES POLICE MAGAZINE The BLUES POLICE MAGAZINE 51
