President’s Message


Judge Mark D. Pfeiffer, President

My father-in-law died earlier this year; and, to make matters worse, so did my favorite dog of all time…

I get it. Those two events are hardly comparable to one another, but they both left lasting impressions on me. Given my father’s death at a young age, my father-in-law was much more of a father figure to me than anything else. And, my Black & Tan Coon Hound was plainly and simply one of the best exemplars of true friendship I’ve ever experienced.
