I received this lovely note from Lynn Habian, concert pianist, on Christmas Eve and am posting it here with her permission.
My husband and I send our sincere deepest condolences to you and your family. I spoke to your father many times, on the island and from the States.
I’m a pianist who played at La Residencia 3 times- 2012, 2014 and 2015. I was put in touch with your Dad thru Louise, PR at the hotel. I didn’t meet your Dad, although I invited him to my concert. I did correspond with him thru email. I sensed after the loss of his Stephanie, he wanted to avoid the musical scene.
I had a great respect for your father. Because my teachers in past were older people, I agreed with his views on how things should be handled professionally in music business. So many things have changed.
I did read his obituary and saw the video that was done with you and family and friends. Lovely.
If you wish to know who I am, please go to my website: lynnhabian.com
Again, I’m very sorry for your loss.
Lynn Habian, USA
