I am saddened to hear about the loss of my good friend and colleague John OQuinn. Johns generous contributions to our community impacted countless lives, including the thousands of children saved in the building that bares his name at the Childrens Assessment Center of Houston. While we were on opposite ends of the political spectrum, John and I were long-time friends, in-and-out of the courtroom and serving on the Board of Directors for many years at the Childrens Assessment Center. Houston has lost one of their finest. My thoughts and prayers go out to Johns family, he will be dearly missed.
