Just read the eulogy for Pierre Trudeau that was read by his son at his funeral. Pardon me whilst I try not to cry too obviously… I could really only wish that someone could write something that emotional about me and read it at my funeral.

For the murkins reading, Pierre Elliot Trudeau is a former Prime Minister of Canada. I don’t remember him being in charge, although I did study some of the history around when he was in power (mostly the Quebec issues.) I don’t really know much about him, or Canadian politics in general… and still, reading this eulogy made me get emotional. I feel like I missed out on something. Strange feeling.

Spent most of the night playing King’s Quest I. Had to install a DOS mouse driver to play it. I bought the entire King’s Quest Series, I’m going to try to play through them in order. I don’t get this much enjoyment from new games… sad, that. I can’t explain exactly why it’s sad, but trust me, it just is.

    We watched the whole funeral at work. I was trying my hardest to keep my tears at bay during that speech, I didn’t want to seem like wuss in front of the boys. It just seemed so sincere, I really felt for him and it made me miss my own mom.

    Nice Eulogy

    Yeah, its a nice Eulogy. I always like the Man. He had a good sence of humour, and I will always remember the televised debate in 1979. He massacered Joe Clark. Eighty one years old.

    Thanks of the link to the Eulogy JennyLee. Have a nice day 2 morrow.


    P.S. Happy Birthay!

    he will be missed. I think of him as the last great visionary, not in the sense of some kind of ephemeral vision, but he had an idea of what he wanted a country to be, and he worked towards that idea. Now we just have beancounters…

    It was a beautiful eulogy.. he HAS earned his sleep…
