This week we are honoring the life of Reverend Judge Sam Payne.
I was honored to have Sam in my life as he was in my father's law firm for a while plus our families went to church together. He was a big influence in my life.
Judge Payne touched a lot of lives during his time here on earth.
At our legal bar association meetings Judge Payne, being a priest, would always give our prayer. He always closed with this statement: "Keep us mindful of the needs of others and give us the courage to do something about it".
Judge Payne certainly had that courage.
