My sincerest condolences to Mr. Reynold's family, particularly Patrick with whom I went to music school under Mr. Reynolds at Iowa State. I once tried to call him "Jimmie Howard," but it did not sound right. I have to call him Mr. Reynolds because he was a huge influence in my life as a conductor, musician, and mentor to stand up to any problem, look it in the eye, and do what is necessary, including, if necessary, to "give it the middle finger." I have honored his example of caring for his students by a career in law helping those in need. I think back on his guidance and example often. Thank you Mr. Reynolds.
