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,

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!

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!

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!

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.
