Abe was our friend at Jewish studies at the JCC. He asked interesting questions. We also enjoyed time with him; he will be missed.

Mr. Heller: You will be missed at the JCC. Who else will ask me so many questions that potentially have no answer. Via con dios. Diane

I am very sorry to hear of the family's loss. It is impossible for me to think about Mr. Heller without also thinking about Westhampton Electronics that he founded and owned for many years. His enthusiasm and joy for all the young people he hired and trained will always remain in my memory. I wish for good fortune to be his companion where ever he travels next.
