We saw these same characteristics of John in a painting class. A dedicated and enthusiastic painter, who always had a kind word for each of us. My sincere condolences to the family on a the loss of a wonderful man.

John was a perfect gentleman and very kind to me as a young lawyer recently transplanted from Boston nearly 30 years ago. He was the model of civility in what is often a contentious area of law and will be dearly missed by those of us who had the privilege of practicing against him.

We have fond memories of our visit, near Monterey, with the Lightner family , the parents of Bill, who had become a great friend while studying in Paris. They greeted us as family. We remember the graceful smile on Mr. Lightner's face and his kindness. Our sincere condolences to Mrs Lightner and the children.

Dear Clare,
My deepest condolences to you and your family at this difficult time. Although I only met him once in passing, I know what a great person he was both personally and professionally through my dealings with you. May his memory be eternal and may God grant you and your family a long life in which to remember him.
