Abe and I met in the 7th grade at Safford and would stay friends for many years. We did not have very much in common but some how we became friends.  I really think it was due to his outgoing personality and that he honestly liked people.  Even after we graduated from THS and he went on to school and I went off to the Air ForceI, he always seemed to know when I was in town and always found time to call and talk to me. I didn't get home very often in those days.  After I retired from active duty in 96 and decided to stay and work in Texas we would stay in touch electronically.  An old friend from our Junior High School days called to let me know that Abe had passed.  I think of him often,  and more so now that our 50th Reunion is coming up.  I will miss not seeing him whenever I visit Tucson.

I was proud to be Abe's friend at THS and even prouder to be his friend at TUSD.  Kids are the name of that game, and Abe was all for kids.
