All,

I met Andreas many years ago.  I knew very quickly that Andreas was
extremely bright and a very interesting person to know.  The more I found
out about him the more we interacted the more I grew to respect him and his
talent.  I was lucky enough to get a chance to work with Andreas.  Andreas
was a phenomenon.  The work that he created was beautiful.  His method
precise, his solutions well thought out and he was able to create with
unmatched dexterity and efficiency.  We became good friends.  I was also
lucky enough to be meet Andreas in person for the first time at his
wedding.
Andreas was a very happy man.  Kathleen was Andreas' perfect match. 

We will miss Andreas terribly not only for his talent, but for how he
touched our lives.  We lost a great friend.  The world feels like a much
smaller place today.  Our hearts go out to Kathleen, and to the big group
of
family and friends that loved him so.

>From Alan Kay:

Dear All

At lunch today we -- Bert, Aran, Yoshiki and myself -- first got word (via
a
phone call from Rita to Bert) that Andreas was suddenly in a hospital in
serious condition. Then a few minutes later we were told that he had died.

At this point we have no other information except that he left normally for
work this morning.

Bert will let us know when we have more news.

We all loved Andreas and nothing can lesson our grief at this sudden
tragedy

Best wishes to all

Alan
