We were heart sick on hearing the news this weekend . He is etched forever in the hearts of the Hall legacy , because he was the favorite , most admired and beloved Preceptor who taught the most about being a very smart doctor - two generations of interns - David & Mary She is now an internal medicine hospitalist at Hamot UPMC in Erie . More than this , we just love him through and through . His passion and pursuit of truth will always echo in our minds . I cherish as a runner , the many “Abe” sightings on his route that crossed my path and lifted me up . ( Suzie) Love to you all !
