  4. Abel was my true friend and like a brother to me. Very trustworthy, dependable and above all loyal. True qualities hard to find. We spent many of good times together. I invited him to go to Costa Rica with me and we truly enjoyed many good memories in the land of ‘THE PURA VIDA”. I can truly say Able enjoyed life and lived life to the fullest. He was the epitome of a true gentleman and an example for all of us to live by.

    My deepest condolences to the family. May god grant you peace and tranquility during this time of suffering. Sabrina know that your Dad was truly loved and will be missed by many.

    Rest in Peace my brother and PURA VIDA FOR LIFE!!!!
