Our prayers and love are sent on your behalf. Though the miles have kept us apart, I've always held you in my heart as a dear cousin with fond memories. There is nothing more important in this life than family, and we are part of your family. If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know.
Oh Jenny,I'm so terribly sorry. Debbie told me at work and I have been thinking of you. You and your family are in my thoughts.
I am so very sorry for the loss of this young vibrant life. May you find peace in remembrance.
Your loss is great, but greater so is your love for each other. My condolences and heartfelt prayers.
Oakwood birthday parties and Ashton's first 'crush' that is what I remember about Abel. And also his beautiful eyes.
So very sorry for your loss. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
We didn't get a chance to meet Abel. Our son Kyle from ASU knew him and was going to room with him next year. We feel we knew him through our son. We are so sorry for your loss.

Summer days spent running around the Cottonwood club will never be forgotten. Everyday spent with you was a new adventure. I'm very lucky to have know you Abey-Baby.
Al, Jenny & Cal, please know that we love you and will be here for you whenever you need us.
Jenny and family. We were so sad to hear the news. Our little Cottonwood Club family grew up together and it won't be the same without Abel. Our hearts are breaking for your broken hearts. May you find peace in the memory of "your gift of Abel". Kathi, Jordan, and Cassidy Brown
How much fun we had watching those kids run wild through cottonwood club summers. I always remember Able would be the first one at the snack bar for a fresh scone. He would make me laugh, like a little blond minx trickster. Both Hayden and Lilly were drawn to him like magnets. I remember when Ali went to England and Able asked her what does England smell like Ali. So curious and just funny. Bless his sweet heart. Thank you Al and Jenny for bringing that greatness to this earth. He is free.
I don't know you or Abel, but our family lost a jewel the same way and I feel your pain. I can tell he was amazing and can tell he loved you. Bless your family
I did not know Abel but I know your pain. Our son left in 2005 by his own hand. Still miss him, still talk to him, still talk about him with others. If you have need to talk firstname.lastname@example.org
To our "son" Abel, we will never forget your heart of gold, your infectious and beautiful smile or the knock on our back door on Sunday mornings asking for pancakes. We will take care of your mom, dad and Calvin. Love and miss you Larson family
I read your obituary this morning in the Tribune. Reading about your loving Abel reminded me of a "life prayer" I often use at memorial services (I'm a chaplain) and something I hope to be read at my own some day. I thought perhaps the words might touch you.
When I die if you need to weep
Cry for your brother or sister
Walking the street beside you
And when you need me put your arms around anyone
And give them what you need to give me.
I want to leave you something
Something better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I've known or loved
And if you cannot give me away
At least let me live in your eyes and not on your mind.
You can love me most by letting hands touch hands
By letting bodies touch bodies
And by letting go of children that need to be free.
Love doesn't die, people do
So when all that's left of me is love
Give me away.
In lieu of flowers, give love away.
Blessings and Peace of the heart to your family.
