Pete,

This is heartbreaking. I know how close you two were and can see why. Ab was a true gentleman and a great asset to the 356 world and is already missed!

Very sad. He was a unique character, knowledgable, helpful, and a true 356 enthusiast. RIP Ab.

Great supporter of all things 356. I have many of his hand made tools. He will be greatly missed. Keep your speed up Ab, we'll KTF down here.

RIP Ab,

We used to argue about technical details. Ab, Wish you were still here to keep that up. Glad I was able to see him at the last fall swap meet at Ski Roundtop.
