  1. Some very fine lawyers passed away in the last year and we are the poorer for it. One of them, my friend and law school classmate, Tom Mullins, was taken way too soon. Let’s take a minute and recall these fine folk and hope they rest in peace and that their memory is eternal. I particularly want to thank the Milwaukee Bar Association for conducting this yearly memorial service. It is a fitting tribute to those who served in Wisconsin.
