A respected opponent, a distant friend. Killed my nerves at times, made me smile at times. Certainly one with whom I would have shared a beer. And as we now learned, he had courage - respect!

A tribute for Abraham.

Abraham was the only one I knew that could stand toe to toe with Avon Lady in a shoot out, name the subject.

Good-bye Abraham ... sorry you had to go early

I remember having some great WW2 debates with Abraham who won my respect and admiration, I will truly miss Abraham who was to me a great forum member.

R.I.P
Abraham

Back at the forums after a few months shore leave and the first thing I read is this horrible news. I'm in total shock and disbelief.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Abraham was a fantastic guy and a great member of the subsim community and forums. My only regret was that I never had a chance to meet him in person. I'll pray for you mate. I'm sure you are in a much better place. Peace be with you.

I lost for words.

This must be the end of a era for subsim.

Very sad.

I've just come back from a wedding to find this terrible news. Abraham was a forum friend, as much as that's possible.

As much as we sometimes debated, we more often agreed. Our conversations by PM were always cordial and interesting.

He had a bright, peaceful outlook on life. May he rest in peace and may his family be consoled by who he was.

I didn't really know him, but still I read a lot of his writing, and find this quite depressing.

Farewell Abraham. I did not know you, but your death is a loss for the world, I am sure.
