I am so sad. I grew up with my beloved brother Wolf (we were very close in age) and Marvin and my brother were in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts together when Mrs. Resnick was the Den Mother. We all became like a gang (the good connotation) along with many other friends - who still remain friends. Our hanging out on weekends - going to various places in Houston - IHOP, to my house for Potato Latkes - or to Eppy's house - or to the record store he partially owned (I think). We lost touch after he stopped talking for his silent period and then changed his name. Funny, we never thought it was weird; it was just Hu . A lovely guy . Well, he and my brother were buddies and as such, they both passed away the same day (different years) . Maybe they are starting their own club in heaven. My bro will welcome him .
If anyone knows how to get ahold of his sisters, please reply. Barbara especially we knew pretty well.
Bye ol' Friend. Love and comfort to his widow Pam.

The brief time I spent with Hugh was always full of learning. His calm (and tall!) presence will be missed. May his spirit continue to bless all who loved him and cherish his memory.

I loved getting to know Hugh and was so happy to see what a deep connection he and Angela formed so quickly. He had a ready laugh and irony, and a dear spirit. His commitment to community and preserving our beautiful world was so inspiring. Love surround and comfort you my sweet Angelina

I miss seeing Hugh every week. I appreciated his raw, tell it like it is, personality. A true teddy bear at heart.

Hugh Resnick was one of a kind and will be dearly missed by many. I meet Hugh as a result of our mutual interest in cohousing. Following my good fortune to retire early, I was introduced to Hughs incredible gift and skill of networking. He was always bringing people together to create a 1+1=3 opportunity for good. Hugh brought to my attention multiple opportunities and things he thought would be of interest to me; including work with the homeless and working poor, alternative housing construction models, and hot real estate deals too good to pass up.
With Hughs encouragement I became involved with the development of Tyler Station and helped the partnership to the point of securing an anchor tenant and CO. Hughs vision for the possibility of this project directly impacted it happening.
On many occasions I would note Hughs letter to the editor in the Dallas Morning News and ping him a atta boy for being published something he accomplished frequently due to his well thought-out insights.
Going out to lunch with Hugh was always an experience. He would typically never order from the menu but would ask for a custom-made dish of limited ingredients which he would then assemble at the table.
My last conversation with Hugh included a discussion about how we are all just passing through and our time on earth is just a short blink of time. God speed Hugh.

Caveat: Please forgive any typos as I am texting this on my phone. Angela, please forgive me for not being there in person to celebrate the memory of Hugh's life. My grandfather has crushed the L3 vertebrae in his back and we are all getting care takers and details worked out.

I met Hugh at a commercial real estate conference around the time Pam was close to passing. Soon after meeting, I remember meditating with him outside by a river and doing energy work with him to help ease his mounting grief. Everything was so green and lush that day, as we listened to the water and wind play a natural melody, echoes of memories came of us doing this in past lives. Our friendship flowed easily, I loved his directness and quirky keen sense of humor. I was practicing real estate law and we started working together on a regular basis. The work flow he provided in the beginning was a blessing as I had moved from 6 years in the securities industry and just started my law practice.

When Pam passed, I remember Hugh shaving his head and telling me that he would be married as soon as it grew out. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about this idea and I asked him, what about finding the right person"? What about finding a soulmate"? He laughed and said, there is no one right person, you can have an amazing and loving journey with anyone of your soulmates, you have lots of different kinds of soulmates you know". I took these ideas and mulled them over for sometime and many times too.

It was not long before he called me and said , "he met the woman he was going to marry". He said they met at a party and she picked him. Just FYI to the reader at this point, his hair was almost to the point where he could part it again. My human reaction was, gee that is fast and how do you know? He said, "I just know". Well between a few more weeks of business calls, I received another call from Hugh, he said, "are free next week to go to the courthouse"? I was a bit alarmed and told Hugh, "you know you wont see me in court unless I am being prosecuted, because I am strictly a transactional attorney, right"? He said, "how about for a wedding" ? Oh well, I replied, "now that is an entirely different matter, I will be there"!

I was nervous for both Angela and Hugh on my way to their wedding but the moment I saw them together I could see the energy between them connecting and intertwining They were good for each other in so many ways and the relationship bloomed and grew and proved to be ten years true. I am very grateful to both Hugh and Angela for all the memories, being part of the beginning of their journey into love and watching it expand over the years. I will miss Hugh's sound advice, humor, encouragement and off color jokes.

Much love to you Angela, I hope you find comfort in Hugh always being a part of you and residing in your heart and soul.

The statement that Hu kept by his computer is based on a format by Phil Laut, author of Money is My Friend.

To create a statement of purpose for yourself, make a list of your 10 favorite characteristics of yourself, then a list of your 10 favorite activities, and then your vision of an Ideal World.

Choose your top three characteristics, and your top three activities and put them together in a format of "My purpose is to use my blank, blank, and blank by blanking, blanking, and blanking to create a world where... Vision of Ideal World."

Hu and I hosted Phil Laut for a workshop in Dallas when we were married.

I am Stacy Clark, Hu's third wife. We thought three would be a charm, and it was good, but we worked out better as friends than as spouses. We met in 1983 when I showed up at the Rudra Ashram for classes. I met Terrell Hasker the same night. We married in 1989 and the divorce was final in February of 1997. We always stayed in touch through email and having lunch whenever I was in town. I moved to Colorado after the divorce.

I dreamed about Hu last night. In the dream we were in some kind of class, something like the NLP classes where I met Hu's fourth wife Pam Pizel, before he ever knew or married her. In my mind, I knew he was dead. I gave him a hug and I said, "but you're solid."

When I told Terrell, he said Hu always was a solid guy. This is true.

I hold death differently than most people seem to. I have joked that Hu has already been reincarnated as a chocolate bar, spelled Hu, the way he is always spelled his name. ( I suppose when he started into the commercial real estate, he switched it for business purposes, but that wasn't his name.) You can find these chocolate bars at Whole Foods.

But the thing that comes to mind and the time that I always remember Hu is when I eat chicken.

Anyone who has ever seen Hu eat chicken knows what I'm talking about. Someone has to tell the story.

It says a lot about him in so many ways. Hu would eat the meat off of chicken bone so thoroughly that there was nothing left for the roaches. He says that it was because his parents did not believe that he was still hungry, so he learned to make the most of what he was given. Hu was like that. He was also conservative and caring for the planet. He didn't waste anything & was always finding ways to use what other people might have considered trash or junk. Hu worked in the recycling industry after leaving JCPenney jewelry when we were married.

Well, that's enough stories.

I love Hu Resnick very much. And always will.

I thank Angela for being the one who took care of him at the end of his life.
