Thirty-nine years ago today, on June 18, 1978, I married Steve Schiffman. It was also Father’s Day. My father was the most loving, optimistic, hardworking and fun-loving man I could hope to be blessed with as my parent. He valued education, above all, encouraging me to pursue my dream of being an attorney. I met Steve in law school and we have had a wonderful partnership in law and marriage. He has been a loving, caring, husband, and father to our two sons. He is my best friend. This day reminds me how doubly blessed I have been.
