A short eulogy for a dear friend
He was the kind of man that when you knew he was coming you waited with anticipation. When he entered he bent down, he had to. The big man that he was. He whispered a lot so as not to over power. His voice was often soft. Very becoming for such a big man.
Because he was able to exert such control over his movements for such a big man, it enabled him to convey more heartfelt concern then most… and you knew he meant it.
When he was reacting to something you said; it was clear it was with fore thought and crafted so as not to offend - but to make a point.
One always got the feeling that his charity never let the left pocket know what the right pocket was doing.
When he complemented you, you were complemented indeed and you knew it wasn’t flattery.
I bonded to him immediately as he did to me. I know this because he told me so. He often told me what a great guy I was. Why - I really don’t know. I don’t know why I bonded so quickly to him. But then, I don’t know why I bonded so quickly to the setting of the sun either.
You loved to see him come and you hated to see him leave.
There was this time together when this old man was telling the young man that he had a greater potential. That he could do greater things. Go on I said get an MBA. And now I wonder. Should I have told the lilies of the field that they weren’t beautiful enough? If I sprinkled gold dust on them would I have made them more beautiful?
This man was beautiful-- as god made him.
And untouched … a man of great humility. We who knew him are the more fortunate and the worse for having lost him. But fear not, nothing is forever. In a short time we shall all laugh again, meet again in god’s good time! And until we meet again…………
