Today I will talk about the man who was my partner for an entire lifetime. I knew Brett for 37 years, of those we were partners for 36. I will glorify more than a partnership, but rather a fraternal friendship that was built through the years.We do not share the same race, religion or ethnicity. Brett comes from a family of North American and Panamanian roots. Mine comes from India. Despite all these factors we were joined by the profession of law and by mutual respect. Over the years we fed this relationship, sharing values and principles that would determine our professions as well as our lives.
