Dear Ms. Pollak and Family - I extend my condolences on your loss. Judge Pollak was Dean of Penn Law School when I graduated in 1976. I interviewed him for the Law School newsletter shortly after he became Dean. I had also met him at Yale while I was an undergraduate, during his term as Dean of the Yale Law School. I still remember that meeting. I was a member of Davenport College, where he was a fellow. One winter morning I was having breakfast with another student. The dining hall was not very full. Judge Pollak asked whether he could join us. I already knew who he was. Because I already planned to attend law school, so I was thrilled that the Dean was joining us. In introducing himself, he simply said, "I"m Lou Pollak." Even though that encounter occurred over 40 years ago, whenever I think of Judge Pollak, I remember his modesty in joining a couple of undergraduates for breakfast. I consider myself fortunate to have known him. May his memory be for a blessing.

To Mrs. Pollak, Sally, Debbie, et al:

Please accept my condolences on the passing of your husband and father. I'm sure he is missed, not only by you, but by many whose lives he touched.

Having spent a little time in your household, I can't say as if I ever heard Judge Pollak speak more than twenty words. I remember him always with a modest smile.

On one or two occasions at dinner he ate quietly. And with his eyes sparkling he appeared to enjoy the colorful din, from all the women in his life, which danced about the table.

Quiet as he was to me, he seemed to instill the courage in each of his five daughters to find and use her own voice. That is a wonderful legacy.

I am sorry for your loss.
