  18. I was just made aware of Ferdinand’s passing and it leaves me with great sorrow that I was unable to attend his memorial service. Ferdinand was a great man! We conducted business together for a number of years and over that time became good friends. We had many discussions over that time about his illness and in-depth conversations about faith. I believe Ferdinand is in a better place and I want to personally thank you for allowing him to travel as he did for I am a better person as a result. May God bless you in your time of sorrow.

    I was deeply saddened to hear of Ferdinand’s passing. His courage, his positive attitude and his energy was a huge encouragement to me. The relationship he built with us both through his technical knowledge and personal values will be missed, but not forgotten.
