Testament for Richard S. Gresalfi

I worked against Rich several times and he was always a tough opponent but he was also a gentleman and fun guy to have dinner with when a case was finished.  He always kept his word and was one of the few lawyers that did not need to document every little agreement during a case; if he said he would do something he did it and he did not need a piece of paper to remind him of his commitment.  He also had a very cutting sense of humor and he was not shy about letting loose on the pompous or arrogant but did it in such a way that was always funny and never mean.

There are many of us in Texas who worked with and against Rich and will miss him.  I was drinking with several of his old foes and friends here last week and we had a nice toast to Rich.  May he rest in peace.
