I am profoundly honored to come here today and stand in solidarity with you. There has not been a single week in the past 10 years during which I didn't think of him or miss him. He is as real to me today as he was on his last day on this earth...
...When you leave here tonight, after we will sing and we will miss him once more, remember: If he were here, he would say 'enough with all of this. Live the good life, and for goodness' sake, continue my work.'
Thank you, God bless you, Shalom Haver.
