Abby Adams Remarks: Randy J. Holland Celebration of Life

Hi, Abby Adams. I clerked for Justice Holland in 1997. My favorite memories of Justice Holland are having lunch with him here at Smith’s over grilled cheese and black coffee. I miss those lunches. I will miss those lunches. I always look forward to getting the email about having lunch and dropping everything and coming over here.

How has my life been impacted by Justice Holland? He set the bar. My clerkship set the bar for my career. He set the bar for what it is to be an attorney or what it is to be a judge, what it is to be a good person who cares about people.

He believed in me. I’m sure as all of this clerks. He felt I could do anything I wanted and with the confidence of someone like that, I went out in the world and tried my best and always tried to make him proud.

Note: The law clerk remarks were limited in time due to the number of clerks.
