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!

To the Friends & Family of my brother Jeff, this year's anniversary of Jeff's passing hit me like a ton of bricks, much worse than the first year! Whoa, crying and anxiety for an entire week before I realized why. Yikes, I miss him so much, especially on Sundays when we would talk on the phone, Argentina to California. I encourage you all, esp. Jenny, Diego, Howard and Sully, to allow yourselves to feel these feelings as they come and to just be grateful as I am that you knew him while he was around, that you got those jokes, that he offered you love & comraderie and that you were in his special circle. Thanks to whoever paid for this Guest Book. Please keep in touch and cherish those memories we share. I am thinking of buying a small granite marker in his memory so there is a sacred place to go think about him and the times we had.

Two years already....I will never forget the time we spent together...just talking about anything and everything!
You are always in my heart.

Thank you Howard, for this beautiful tribute to a wonderful person.

Jeff -

It's been two years and I still miss you every day. Your spirit lives on in all of us who were fortunate enough to be able to share your love, generousity and friendship.

I will always be grateful for our time together; and the light you left shining inside me will never fade.

Take care, my old friend

Did you ever notice how hard it is to play the french horn? The mouthpiece is teeny, no tuba mouthpiece. And yet, my baby brother mastered the thing. Such great lungs he had that even smoking did not deter his playing. And always a funny line or some memory that only he and I shared to keep us going. I could not have had a better brother. If you ever knew Jeff, thank you for playing music with him or just enjoying his company. He needed you at that very moment and no grief or tears will help him now. Just keep a special place in your memories for this wonderful person.
