    - The Look Back N2 Gloria Simons (Then) And Lowell Baldwin/"River"!

    So they're going 2 tell us viewers just how River and Gloria met and a flashback n2 the 60's this time around.
    Gloria's young life doings are about 2 come out n rise cycle with a young "Michael Baldwin" n tow maybe.
    ** ** I can't wait 2 see this play out, because there's more 2 the now grown up Gloria that's dying 2 b revealed.** **
    This just might be what Jeffrey, is digging up on Gloria since he had left her.
    Just a thought, i wonder if Jeffery went back 2 see Kyon again? (lol)

    I cant wait to see what happens with this story! Is there any way that I can get in touch with her? I've recently been diagnosed with the same disorder and would love to talk with her about it. Thanks!

    atwtlovr07 - you may be able to get an address to write to her through the film production company or authors of "The Abby Spirit" the link is fixed in the article, but this is it:

    Otherwise, Abby doesn't seem to have an official website or Myspace page.

    Good luck,
