"Longer than a lifetime"
This past Saturday I watched the funeral of Jack Layton in its entirety and I was alternately moved to tears, amused to laughter, roused in spirit and just spellbound.
The music was poignant and the singers magnificent. The eulogies were a pleasure to listen to and the priest cracked me up!
Jack - you had a terrfic send off. I wish you could have seen it.
During Jack Layton's son's eulogy, he mentioned some advice that Jack had given and it resonated with me.
I have reproduced it here.
It inspires me.
