It was a great gathering of those who were touched by him, and those who had not had the pleasure. The words spoken were strong and heart felt. 

I once asked a friend, after a long night of reflecting, drumming and story telling, "When did we grow old?". 
His answer stayed with me over these many years. 
"We grow old when our friends start dying."
