"I'm always relieved when someone is delivering a eulogy and I realize I'm listening to it."

[That is all]

Very well put, Mr. Karnas. Yours was much better than mine, even if I am winning in the content battle (although, I have lapsed recently). And is that eulogy quote from Carlin? Brilliant. A random Carlinism I like is "Notice you never get laid on Thanksgiving? Probably because all the coats are on the bed." He made it all make sense;^)

Thank you, Mr. McDonough. I enjoyed yours all the same.

AND YES: The eulogy quote was a Carlinism and my mother's favourite.
