Abel Wang, a true legend, is gone.

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/30

Hopefully my response to his spouse was appropriate enough:

Thanks for this tribute. It’s amazing, lovely, wonderful, all at the same time.

Abel is one of the persons that I would have loved to meet in real life.

I’m forever grateful that Scott Hanselman got me into touch with Abel Wang. Abel informed and motivated me. After that we stayed in touch every now and then about being ill and how to deal with that.

I had to contemplate for a while as this hit me harder than I thought, especially given the “always positive Abel” he is in my – and many others’ – minds.

So to all his close ones: remember the positivity and try to be like that. Abel expects that from us.

Glad I could send him some good thoughts last week, and miss him already.
