The dedication to Judge Hancock includes a tribute by Judge Richard D. Simons, his dear friend and colleague on both the Court of Appeals and, previously, on the New York's Appellate Division, 4th Department. It is the eulogy Judge Simons delivered at the Memorial Service for Judge Hancock, on March 7, 2014, at the Park Central Presbyterian Church in Syracuse.

Finally, the dedication includes my own few words about the Judge.
I was the beneficiary of several extraordinary years serving as the law clerk for this extraordinary man, and of many more years thereafter as his friend.
