William Sloane Coffin’s Eulogy for Alex

 

This was sent my way as a follow-up on my sermon.  It is incredible and very powerful.

One of the most powerful statements in this sermon was the following:

The reality of grief is the solitude of pain, the feeling that your heart is in pieces, your mind’s a blank, that ‘there is no joy the world can give like that it takes away.’ (Lord Byron)
