Abigail Hope Fleck
January 29th, 2010 - October 22nd, 2018.
Abigail Hope Fleck was born on January 29th, 2010 in Mobile, Alabama and passed away on October 22nd, 2018. Abigail touched so many lived in just the 8 years she was here on Earth. Her smile was contagious and she had such a deep love for people. Abigail loved to dance. She would roll onto her stomach, prop herself up on her arms, and shake her head side to side grinning ear to ear. She loved fireworks. Every boom in the sky left her laughing hysterically. Abigail loved being surrounded by her favorite toys. She loved picking them up, waving them around gazing at them intently, and then tossing them out of reach. She would roll and scoot the best way she knew how to get her toys, pick them back up, and repeat. Abigail was perfect in every way!
Abigail is survived by her mother and father Vickie and Mick Fleck, her brothers Colton Fleck and Bauer Fleck, and by her sisters Haley Miller and Eliana Fleck.
Visitation and funeral services will be held on Sunday, October 28, 2018.
Visitation will be from 1:00pm to 3:00 PM in the chapel of Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home. Her service will begin at 3:00pm in the chapel immediately following visitation.

In 2009, we prayed and felt in our hearts that God wanted us have a child. We had secure jobs and we were fortunate enough to have a wonderful home. Then God really worked on us both until we understood His message. God wanted us to have a baby. We prayed together several times and promised God that this was His child and if this is what He was asking, then we would honor His wishes. Within months, Vickie was pregnant. We were overjoyed! We were told at our doctor's visits that the sonograms looked perfect, the heart looked normal, Abigail looked healthy, and she should weight over 7 pounds.
January 10th, 2010 changed us in ways that we had no idea were coming. Everything about Abigail had been hidden by God. No tests, ultrasounds or measurements had been accurate. Her birth was something no one was prepared for. She arrived very quickly and almost 3 pounds smaller than any estimate, gray skinned, and not breathing.
The nurses were amazing and had her pink shortly afterward. Vickie held her briefly and they took her away to the nursery. As the doctors made sure Vickie was ok, I knelt outside the door and begged God for answers. I pleaded. I demanded. I then felt God's presence. Immediately after that moment I stood, He has guided us through so much since then.
We promised God that this was His child. He wanted us to learn how to care for her while always listening to Him. His first message to us was Jeremiah 29:11. We need to hang on to this scripture as if it were an anchor in this storm we call life.
We have witnessed Abigail touch thousands of lives. God used her in ways we never dreamed possible. We had a love for caring for her that surpassed all other worldly desires. God surrounded us with people who needed her.
If Abigail Hope has touched your life in some small way we, want you to know a few things. Abigail's departure from earth was much like her arrival. It was unexpected, brief, and without any suffering. Secondly, you have been touched by God's messenger. She was without sin and as close to Holy as a human can be. God used her specifically to reach you. Whether it was for comfort, inspiration, knowledge, or simply love. HE sought YOU through her. The message that we have clung to for almost nine years was given to us by God... Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
God's plan was to use Abigail to touch you. Rejoice in this blessing that HE has sought you out. Let her finish this work that she started. Turn toward Him and embrace His love and Peace.
What a beautiful tribute to a special child. Abigail was so loved and cared for by her family. From the moment she was born, you embraced and loved her and gave her every opportunity of a happy, adjusted life. This little angel is truly now an angel in heaven. Vickie and Mick and Haley and Eliana and Mick''s boys.....your deep faith in God will help you through this loss. I pray that Our Lord will comfort you in your loss and sorrow and lift you from the depths of grief into the peace and light of your presence. I so wish I could have been present at her service. But she and you are in my thoughts and prayers, for sure. Love you!

What beautiful words and video. My condolences to the Fleck family. So sorry for your loss. I never met Abigail but followed her journey on Facebook and have known Vickie since high school. She has always been such an amazing, caring, honest person, and met Mick at the beginning of there relationship and could tell how much they loved one another. God definitely had his plans to bring them two together and to give them a gift; a piece of himself through baby Abigail. As I read all the comments on Facebook I can how this Angel touched so many and brought people together with joy and laughter. She was truly a blessing and gift from GOD. Mick and Vickie I send my love to you and family.

The message is beautiful. God used Abigail in my life to show me His perfect love. The first time I held her there was no doubt that I held more than a mere baby in my arms. She made my soul overflow with love and peace. I truly did feel touched by God. She has forever changed me. Watching your journey with her and also forever changed me. Watching God provide what seemed humanly impossible was humbling to say the least. We love you guys.

That sweet baby girl changed my life the day she was born. Abigail had a very special purpose. I’m forever greatful God choose me to be able to be in a small portion of her life. There are no two better people God could have choose to love her and be her parents. I have no doubt you done everything HE wanted. I admire you two and strive to have faith they way y’all do. Thank you for allowing me to take care of her.
