Dearest Mary,

I just stumbled across the very sad news of Tom's unexpected passing. He was both a good and a great man. I will never forget the circumstances of our first meeting many years ago.

He was going to Argentina for some kind of bar confrerence and I was going for business related to Argentine participation in a Hungarian World's Fair (which never came to pass). I had been to Argentina twice before, this was his first time. We were accidental seat mates. I...

Dear Mary, we just learned of Tom's death today. We are very sorry for your loss, he was too young and should have enjoyed retirement for many years to come.Please accept our condolences.

Those of us privileged to know him, and the many who never got to meet him, have all had our lives made better by the Chief. I would hope that the Supreme Court Building he championed and saw to fruition could bear his name as both a memorial...

My condolences to Mrs. Moyer and family.

We met as bar review students always sitting at the same small table in the Neil House basement. Then sharing an office along with Jason Blue working as AGs under Bill Saxbe. The exemplary traits of character and outlook were evident then.

As a member of the Ethics and Discipline committee of the CBA, I heard Justice Moyer's strong remarks at the beginning of each of our yearly seminars on ethics during my 4 years on the...
