Something just occurred to me there. All of us in this House spend a lot of our time attending funerals. They are ritualistic and very much a part of life, particularly in rural society. I am often struck at funerals by the various eulogies, particularly family eulogies and am inclined to think how good it would be if the deceased person was there to hear them. I have had the unusual experience today of having that happen. I will not suffer that difficulty when the eulogies are being given at my funeral; I will have heard them in advance. It is a nice thing to have heard them in life.
