The reporter who wrote this piece on my father commented to my father's law partners Attorneys Scott Melton & Dan D'Antonio what an immigration success story Attorney John Alan Conte really is. .. Scott shared those words at my father's funeral today. Both Dan & Scott honored my father in a big big way today and we are thankful & grateful.
And it was said: John as a young child found an injured crow and took it home and nursed him back to health. He named the crow "Jimmy" and taught him to sit on his shoulder. John would even walk to school with Jimmy the crow on his shoulder and when he went into the school in the morning Jimmy the crow would wait for him and be there when he got out of school in the afternoon and get back up on John's shoulder and walk on home with him. John figured if he could teach a crow all this he could teach a jury.
