I saw it a few days ago on Bruce's site, Steven. It's as candid and upbeat and loving as you'd expect isn't it.

I especially liked:

How big was the Big Man? Too fucking big to die. And that’s just the facts. You can put it on his grave stone, you can tattoo it over your heart ...


and the part about how he, Bruce, is no mystic but he believes they had been together in older times and will be again ... and the part about Clarence saying this could be the start of something big:-)

Hi Diane,

It was as you put it, "candid and upbeat and loving." It was exceptional for those things. Knew he was
capable of such a eulogy and am glad that he delivered it as he did, despite the difficulty of eulogizing
a person so closely connected to him.

Just saw this....very nice. I remember the one for Danny Federici was similarly upbeat, candid and generally a celebration of life. He has a way with words.
