Mr. Hulki

I wish I could say more big brother.

When I first met you at GM, I stared for 2 minute like looking at a legend. What you did was legendary for someone like me in the spring of your engineering life.

How can I forget that you guide me at GM and lead me through effectively relations.

You are a legend. Automobile in Turkey in did not know you knew in.

Sleep in the lights and be a star to those like me in the sky what you do.

Yours truly
with longings

Bless your family and your lives. You were touched by this man, a visionary for sure. Most of us look to him as the father of the Fiero which we all love and cherish, but it is important that we look to the human side as well as his humanity.
I hope your family is getting along, learning to live with this hole in your hearts. Hopefully he is up there waiting for you; preparing the way for you and your family to join him. I pray and think of you all in your grief and feeling of missing him. Many are doing the same thing here, so do not feel alone for comfort is all around you and your family members. God bless you all!

Dear Leyla and Seba,
Your dad was one of a kind. I meet him many years ago and he was a major part of my growing up and I always considered him a true friend and my mentor. I learned a lot from your father and feel very lucky to have known him and the rest of the family. Your dad was a good man and will be missed. I'm so sorry for you loss.

My condolences to his family. I never had the privilege of meeting Mr. Aldikacti personally, but like many others I am a fan of the Fiero. I understand that he was the guest of honour at several car shows featuring the Fiero, and was a very gracious man and well loved by the Fiero community. I have recently thought of trying to attend an event where I could meet him, but sadly this won't happen.
Again, my condolences to the family, from everything I have read and heard about him you have lost a great man.
