On the passing of Brenda Dillard

Years ago my friend Howard McElroy got me on the Board of The Virginia Bar Association.

I went to all the meetings from 2006-2010, and stopped by many of them in the years 2010-2016, and every one of those I hung out for at least a bit with Brenda Dillard, who organized the meetings, but she always made time for me.

In the last few years I kept up with her by message and text, and a couple of years ago she told me about her illness, and I was afraid every time that I heard from her would be the last time, and so if nothing else she knew how much I have enjoyed being her friend, because I told her.

Rest in peace, Brenda.
