My sincere condolences to my cousins, Hector, David, & Alice on the loss your dad (Tio Abel). Although it has been several years since I last had the pleasure of seeing any of you, I will forever carry fond memories of Tio Abel (& Tia Lala). He provided me with wise counsel and was always kind to me & my siblings. My love and prayers to your entire family.

We are reminded of the strong Christian couple Abel and Lala were most especially in raising their children. God is good. We are thankful for Abel’s kind and gentle presence when Lala cared for our daughter in her toddler years. Abel read the Bible to her and shared Jesus stories with her...very fond memories. Abel’s life is also a supreme example of what it means to go and make disciples of others. He often and with persistence invited others to church. He will be missed. Our condolences and love to the entire family.

I remember when Abel and the Family lived close to us on Theo St. Being related to our Step-Father Tito Muniz brought great childhood memories! We will miss his witty charm and calm demeanor!

My deepest condolences to the Pacheco Family. Abel was a father figure for me and Francisco and a grandfather figure for my children. We also had the privilege of being neighbors and we have very fond memories with him and with LaLa. He will be missed.
