Thanks Jenni. I always remember Jeff's birthday, day after our St. Patrick's Day holiday here in the U.S. Two kids at the elementary school where I work share the same birthday-March 18-and I always tell them about my dear brother. Jenni, Jeff would want me to tell you that you should take good care of yourself and know that he always loved you very much. Please keep some hope for the future. Life is full of pain but then recovery. And with tomorrow comes Spring.

Thanks Jennie. It helps to know there are others on this earth with the profound sadness every year in October and for you every day. Such a dear man he was, a great friend, brother and papa. A great musician.

Ocho años y no pasó un sólo día sin que te haya recordado. Cada tanto la gente me habla de vos, todos te conocen, no puedo más que estar eternamente orgullosa de lo que fuiste para este mundo.

2014 and with the close of October, another sad anniversary of Jeff's passing. He lives on in the music for me. He lives on in his children wherever they are tonight.

Remembering Jeff with every horn call at symphony, the latest being the famous last part of Stravinsky's Firebird. How do hornplayers play quietly and melodically? Seems like an impossibility of breath control, but Jeff had it. And lucky me to have the memory of that wonderful music. Played by my dear friend and brother.

Jeff -

Five years -

The memories never fade. The mark you left is indelible. Your spirit still remains fresh - a gift you left behind, for which I am always grateful.

Your Friend,

Howard

Jeffrey, my old friend,

Three years later and I still miss you every day. There are so many times when I think to myself, "I would have called Schlegel to tell him"...but somehow I can feel that you know that.

Your spirit, love, kindness, humor, generosity and friendship are gifts that remain fresh and alive in my heart.

I will never forget you.

I knew Schlegel (as we called him back in the day!) back in 1976, when I was visiting my brother, Eugene, in Manhattan. Schlegel lived in the basement apartment one building over.

Often after a hard day of practicing, we would converge on Schlegel's apartment to toss back a few beers. Once we were good and buzzed, we could often whine Schlegel into doing his hunting horn routine.

He had this old LP - Lord only knows where he got it! - of 101 Hunting horns, all blasting at the top of their lungs. Schlegel would duck into the other room, start the record, then bust out into our room, hunting horn in hand, where he would mime along with the record.

To this day, whenever I need a chuckle, I conjure up that image, and suddenly all is not as dark as it once seemed.

Thanks, Schlegel, for one of the fondest memories of my 53 years!
