My dear brother would have been 72 today. May his memory be a blessing

Tonight I can recall our very first conversation, outside Loeb Student center after an evening of folkdancing. That evening was the first of many decades worth of memories. I can also sadly remember our final one.

Dearest uncle,
   As I sit reading the "Tale of Genji" I remember our midnight run to get it at Barnes and noble after Law and Order. Not a day goes by when I don't think of you at work dearest uncle/catalyst .
Posted by Marjorie Carter on October 17, 2015
A sad time of year for those of us who loved you and your big personality, Yuri. I shall read some Asimov in your honor and try to imagine your opinions on the Presidential candidates. Ha!
Posted by maury englander on October 17, 2015
Too many dinners in Chinatown that we should have shared. Will crunch an egg roll in your honor! Miss ya, my friend.
Posted by Terri Birch on October 16, 2015
Five years--just too long. I miss you.
Posted by Terri Birch on April 3, 2015
Yuri,
I was shopping the other day and I saw a turn table, that you would have flipped for. It was enclosed in a brief case that was designed as a book. You open it and there's the turntable. You would love it!

Terri

Every time I see a good movie or read a good book or pass by a homeless person, I think of Yuri. He will always be my silent companion; I was lucky to be the recipient of his compassion, intelligence, and friendship for ten fine years.
Posted by maury englander on March 5, 2015
We celebrated your 25th at my studio, your 50th at your apartment and there should have been lots more. :Have missed your company across lots of Chinatown tables, so I will crunch an egg roll in your honor this week! Fine times and happy times remembered!
Posted by Linnea Willman on March 5, 2015
Happy Birthday, Zhivago! Miss you!
Posted by Terri Birch on March 5, 2015
Happy Birthday, Yuri boy. It has been much too long, I miss you. Hope you've met my mum.
Posted by Terri Birch on October 17, 2014
Yuri, I've begun teaching the Orpheus myth, and I am showing my students clips from the opera. You'd love it. Peak in and watch. Love, Terri
Posted by ilya prizel on October 16, 2014
I will ALWAYS miss you.
Posted by maury englander on October 15, 2014
Would anyone like a large (16"x20") color photo of Yuri? This is a print of the shot I did for a magazine cover, with him playing an 'angry counter clerk'

I made one for him that he had hanging in his apartment and just came across another print that I had packed away. I hope one of his friends would like to have it.

I am offering it to the first taker. You must come by and pick it up. I am in the Village in a doorman building, so it can be left for you hat ever your schedule.

Pleae get back to me at: mauryenglander@aol.com

......... I will take this note down when the print finds a new home.

Dearest Uncle,
  As I strive to gain more clinical hours towards hospice I think of you daily. I miss your wisdom and empathy. My loving fountain if knowledge I'm doing my best to impart your wisdom to your great nieces.
Love you Uncle Y

Nephew Because
Posted by Terri Birch on March 7, 2014
I speak of you in class often especially when we discuss opera and literature. You are still a strong, cherished part of my life.
Posted by Marjorie Carter on March 5, 2014
Dear Zhivago, I am thinking of you today , your birthday.I miss so many of your qualities... a quirky passion for arguing politics , yet you claim to have never voted, how your eyes would light up when relating stories about your beloved nieces and nephew. I am now re-reading a Nabakov novel that we read at the same time.... and discussed.... and then you told me what I misunderstood . LOL

You are missed here on earth, my friend. If there is a heaven, I am betting you are standing before God , with one foot on a cloud , telling him how he OUGHT to be running earth. Love you.
Posted by Dory Green on March 5, 2014
I think of Yuri often. A poem, a good movie, a homeless person, any number of things remind me of this sweet and giving man who was the best friend I ever had. He was gone too soon, but his many kindnesses (and sense of playfulness) live on in my heart.
Posted by Linnea Willman on March 5, 2014
Happy Birthday, Zhivago. I miss you and think of you often.
