Memorial Service

Jeffrey Arnold Gottlieb (1940 - 1975) - Memorial Presbyterian Church, July 7, 1975

When each of us is born we are given by God a small plot of land to cultivate. Many of us abuse t his land and use it as if it were a place on which to picnic and leave our trash as we pass through. Others cultivate their land and leave it as a contribution to society in a more beautiful shape than we found it.
-Thomas Mann

Eulogy - Emil J. Freireich, M.D.

Interlude - "Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen" - Brahms - Houston Symphony Chorale

Tributes - Emil Frei, III, M.D. and Robert Livingston, M.D.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here and whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Finale - "Ach Herr, lass dein lieb Engelein" - Bach, Houston Symphony Chorale
