I'm sorry to report that a great man and a great engraver, Bertil Aasland, of the Phoenix, Arizona area passed away on Tuesday of this week due to heart problems. He will be missed by many.

I had just talked with him a couple months ago at Steve L. recommendation (a recommendation from Steve holds a major amount of weight.) He was a very nice guy and took quite a bit of time explaining stuff to me.

I am grieved to hear that. I have considered myself fortunate to know him and to have had the opportunity to visit him at his home. He shared everything with me and taught me. He was a great guy.
