That was an interesting read. Definitely different from the usual obituaries around here.


A wonderful story of a trully remarkable man. Thank you for sharing your father's special legacy with us Hugo. May your father's loving memory guide and inspire you always. __God bless you and your family in this time of grief.

It sounds as though your father had an extraordinary life and was an extraordinary person.

That was touching. I like the family history element to the obituary. Best wishes to your family in dealing with this tragedy.


Hugo, I am so sorry for your loss. But what a wonderful obituary. You can definitely tell the premium your family has placed on education. My thoughts are with you, your wife, and your family as you grieve.


Hugo, that piece made me wish I could have gotten to know your father. My thoughts are with you in this time.

hugo - my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your father. with all the sadness, i am still glad to hear that he was able to leave in peace. how good that you were able to be there in his last moments! thank you so much for sharing his obituary with us. you made a connection. i was also touched that his first wife (your mother, i presume) was mentioned in the obituary. that speaks of a great generosity of heart - something that seems to run in the family.

i'm going to listen to casals playing the bach cello suites now and think of your father.

thank you for sharing yourself with us.

My condolences to you and your family. I am so glad that you had that last gift of time together.


PS the "Bow's Art" pun was wonderful. Did the Bow's Art Trio ever cross paths with any members of the Beaux Arts Trio?


Crossed paths, yes -- a fun tribute to a wonderful trio. I'll ask my step-mother if the pun was my father's idea.

Hugo, I'm thinking of you. I'm sorry that your father died. I wish you and your family well.


I am so sorry, Hugo.

Let it comfort you in a small small way that you are the fourth hottest professor in the country according to ratemyprofessors.com.


Your father's life sounds rich and rewarding, and your tribute to it here is lovely. May his memory be a blessing.



I am sorry to hear of your father's passing. I also love the cello, and would have loved to hear your father perform. He seemed like a very loving and special man.

Rest eternal grant to your servant with your saints, where sorrow and pain are no more, only life everlasting.



I believe that the death of your father, while sad, represents a triumph - that of a life well lived. May we all be able to say the same of our own lives, in retrospect.

Condolences to you, Hugo.


What wonderful pictures! I feel as if I knew him somehow. I'm off to get his book. I'm sure it will be very difficult reading....but I'm going to give it a try anyway. I'm so intrigued by the topic of his book. I'd also like to read some of his articles.

Stephanie Semler

Hello Hugo,
My name is Stephanie, and I am a former student of your father's. I just wanted you to know how wonderful this page is. I was looking for a book review of Unity of Understanding for my research, and I stumbled on your site. Hooray for Google!
I was very fortunate to study with your father, and, like everyone else, I thought of him as a dear friend. I just wanted you to know how he touched my life, along with that of so many others.


Thank you so much, Stephanie, that is enormously appreciated by all of us.
