Good post PtA.
My sincere condolences about your father. This must be difficult for you, man.
I watched the tribute and agree with PtA. Sometimes over-the-top and other times very moving. I guess if we want to take anything away from it, it might be this;
No matter how rich and powerful we may be or become, no matter how well loved we are, we will all one day pass away. Life is difficult and it seems that around almost every turn, there is another obstacle for us. If we try, though, we can work together and help each other through the trials and tribulations. If you're so inclined, let us take this tribute as a reminder that we all need each other, and that, as far as possible, let us treat one another as we wish to be treated; let us love one another- regardless of our individual backgrounds. To those who love us, it is easy. But for those who hate us, for those who mock us, for those who hold us in contempt, for those who's lives are so bizarre that we shake our heads in wonder, indeed, for the whole world- let us pray unto the Lord for theirs our our salvation.
