Thank you

This was the perfect eulogy I was looking for. I was asked (to step in) to read a eulogy for a friend/co-worker on a short notice and I have no idea what to say or where to start. The person that wrote the original eulogy could not go through with it and I was not comfortable to read their eulogy so I had to write my own. This was the perfect example of eulogy of some one that is not related. Thank you for sharing and so sorry for your loss.


Thanks for sharing such a brief but mighty tribute of a great one. It has indeed sharpened my opinion and view about life. Thanks once again.

Miss you

Truly sorry to hear about Jerry's passing. Him and I came to UNCC together from New Jersey. Jerry was a great team mate and he will be missed deeply by the rest of them.
