It was good to come together to share stories and remember them both.”

The presentation took place on Friday November 20 in a special session of the superior court over which the Honorable Theodore S. Royster presided. David Inabinett spoke on behalf of the law firm where Walt and RB practiced. The families of RB and Walt also spoke about their long legal careers.
