Not to be a downer, but I don't actually think this should be.

I attended the memorial service of a man that I have a lot of fondness and respect for this weekend. He was an amazingly jovial, effortlessly positive, and generally a fun person to be around, and his service, thankfully, focused on these points. He lived a very full life, and I think we could all learn a bit from his example. His eulogy, readings, and service were fully centered around how devoted he was to his family, how much he enjoyed life, and how much he gave of himself to others. I think if we could all strive to be remembered as such, the world would be a better place to be.

The quote on the back of his service literature was absolutely fantastic, not only as it relates to him (though it captures him as few words probably could), but also as words we could all probably take to heart.

"You cannot deal with the most serious things in the world unless you also understand the most amusing" --- Winston S. Churchill

Godspeed, and Farewell Neville. Judging by your service, you will be missed, and remembered by many.
