I had the good fortune of knowing Chris for almost 30 years. He was an exceptional lawyer, highly skilled and very diligent. But what I will remember most is that, as talented as he was as in his professional life, Chris was an even better person and a constant friend. He was thoughtful and wise, and remarkably generous with his time and insights. Chris was also a caring person with a great sense of humor. (In my experience, no Monty Python or Marx Brothers reference was too obscure, or New York Yankees anecdote too trivial, for him to thoroughly enjoy it. And he may have been even more passionate about U.S. politics.) I feel incredibly fortunate that he was my friend and will always miss him. My thoughts and sympathies are with his family and those who were close to him; we have all lost a very good man much too soon.
