My deepest condolences to the Garwood family, Arnie and Eleanor, and the grandchildren. I have known Abel for 40 years, just a short time in the history of the centuries-old history of the Garwood family in this area, which Abel was an active part of. Abel was a vital part of Cedar Bridge Nurseries in years past and it is hard to imagine driving by his house and not see him at work outside or driving his tractor across the street. Abel was a smart, capable and modest man and I valued his friendship and advice. He will be missed.
