A Eulogy for my Grandfather
I never knew you as well as I wanted to.
I wish we could have spent more time together.
I knew you as a kind and generous man. Everybody did. Everybody respected you. Everybody looked up to you, because you were honest, determined and full of integrity. You were a leader by example.
We would all be lucky to live the way you did, surrounded by the love and respect of family, friends and colleagues.
Even though you’re no longer with us, you are still a role model for us all. I hope we can all honour you by living in a way that you would be proud of.
I wish I could say this to you in person: I am proud and happy to be your grandson.
