Can't think of a better person to have learned the practice of law from. His title opinions and corporate minutes are the stuff of legend. Always Smiling, forever patient, head crammed full of the relevant and irrelevant. And, perhaps, the irreverent on occasion but always observing the highest standards of legal ethics and competency. I will miss him at our library meetings.
