I am sure that there are a lot of people who didn't know him, but would love to be there to pay their respects to a tower of a man. Myself included.

This though will be a time for his family and friends, so it is right that it should be left to them.

You all should be so proud of him. Please accept my deepest sympathies. The world has lost a truly fine person.
