Letter to the Editor

Judge Patrick M. Carr’s retirement

Tuesday, August 1, 2017

There is an implicit promise from one generation to the next to deliver a society equal to, or better than the last.

The bulwark of the defense and advance of this promise includes the institutions that make up our daily lives including our religious, government and legal institutions. The men and women who labor within these institutions carry a burden of selfless dedication to deliver on that promise.

Few will little note or appreciate the retirement of Judge Patrick M. Carr, who retired after decades of service to the legal community and the general public. But, those of this generation may take quiet satisfaction and pride to know that Carr met his burden, in this generation's promise to the next.
