A great Professor and man, he helped many of us at JMLS achieve our goals. I'll never forget the trip William Crispin and I took with Professor Carr assisting him on a road trip helping out a family member. In the many hours in the vehicle, we learned much wisdom. You will be missed.

If you will permit me to address a man's passing with whom I had only known for four years, had not seen since I graduated from The John Marshall Law School 35 years ago, but who, just the same, left a great impression on me and my career. I was a night law student at law school from 1979 until 1983. I took three courses from Professor Carr, both Properties courses and an Estate Taxation course.

I had no interest in the Professor's property specialty, but I so much loved his teaching style and approach that I took the aforementioned Taxation course my final semester. I was no scholar and failing was a possibility, and while it was risky to take a tough course like this during one's final semester (I assure you that I had no extra hours with which to play), I look this course because I just had to have another course taught by this man.

I remember on his evaluation on the last course, I had typewritten a three page evaluation of what he had meant to me at John Marshall.

I came to a small town in southern New Mexico to be a small town lawyer immediately after my graduation in June 1983. When I say small town, I mean the county has the geographic size much larger than several smaller states, but the county's population is 12,000 and 70 miles away from the nearest like populated city. The practice for my entire career has been akin to being a parish priest.

Although none of my practice has been in the Professor's area, I have used his approach in practicing law everyday of my career. Thus, the Professor's work has helped hundreds and maybe thousands (if I may be so bold) persons who live just 100 miles from the border in this little town, who I (and the Professor!) have had an opportunity to help. I certainly did not know the Professor well. Frankly, his class and status made me think he was almost God-like; thus, I kept my distance-how silly of a youthful me! I wished I had taken the opportunity to know him better.

I remember once in class he asked me a question. As was typical since I had a full-time job, I was marginally prepared, and I uttered a general semi-responsive answer. Don't be so cryptic, Mr. Filosa; expand your answer, he demanded. My following answer displayed my unpreparedness, and knowing that he had me, he dismissed me by saying Go back to being cryptic, Mr.Filosa!

Thanks loads for your good work, Professor, in training so many of us lawyers. You did well, and may you rest in peace; your good work is done! My sincere expression of sympathy to his family, colleagues and friends. May God bless and rest his soul.
