Some thirty or forty years ago when Andy arrived in Geneva he looked me up at my office, – I was in the advertising, public relations business in Europe at that time. We had a broad-reaching conversation and that broad reach continued and continued. He seemed interested in anything and everything. And if he could help it, his comments were not superficial.
It was always astounding to me that no matter what he discussed; no matter whom he commented on (usually a politician—living or dead) I had to listen. He had an opinion that merited attention, even if I did not always agree. You could count on him for an intelligent conversation.
For certain, we will all miss his commitment to whatever he took on, like this Burlamaqui group. We will miss Andy Sundberg as a friend. He left us far too early.
