Ode to Judge Craven

Dear Editor:I am too sad and dazed to be eloquent now about the sudden passing of Chief Judge T. Peter Craven. He was a superb judge and facile with all aspects of the law and trial. He enjoyed not only the respect of the lawyers and people who appeared before him, but also our abiding affection. These were not commanded but rather gently earned through his giant intellect, dedication to public service, kindness of heart and integrity. The cases and trials will grow foggy with time, but never the memory of Judge Craven’s smile and wonderful wit.I looked up to Judge Craven. He embodied all that is good in my profession. I will miss him very much. I offer my condolences and prayers to his wife, Carol, and entire family. They shall forever have our gratitude for sharing such a brilliant and good man with all of us. Matt FergusonAspen
