Ann Jedlowski

I send my heartfelt sympathy to all of Dr. Frischer's family and friends. I worked with Dr. Frischer from 1979 till the time or his retirement from Rush Medical Center. He was my boss, at times my confidant, friend and instantly became our beloved "family" member. I will always remember his kindness to his patients, his friends and to my family. I shed tears as we walked away after our last lunchoen at Greek town my last day at Rush. I again, shed tears on his passing, but thankful he was a part of my life for so long. In my heart, Dr. Frischer and his family will always have a special place! Annie

Marcia Cozzi

I send my deepest condolences. Henri was a dear friend and musical partner. I remember many wonderful chamber music session with him and Alison at Interlochen and Sleepy Hollow and have been praying for Henri ever since he was unable to attend Sleepy Hollow weekends. But I'm sure he's enjoying music in his "new home". I wish peace and healing to all the family.

Henri, Mon Cher!
We had so much to talk about. We had so much music to listen to-- and talk about. We could even hope that there was so much music to play together. What will I do without you? I have never met anyone like like you. Your memory will be a beautiful blessing.
