Rockefeller service

Posted By on Thu, Jul 20, 2006 at 11:50 AM

We welcome reports and comments here from all who watched remotely or attended the service today for Lt. Gov. Win Rockefeller. We missed the legislative service yesterday, but  heard many comments about the legislative group that sang "Battle Hymn of the Republic," in addition to praise of remarks by Sen. Argue and Gov. Huckabee.

Today's memorial service was  more than an hour and 20 minutes. The sanctuary was full. Former President Clinton sat beside Gov. and Mrs. Huckabee. Friends and business associates spoke, the remarks capped by warm, emotional tributes from two of his sons, Win Jr. and Will. They remembered their dad's hunting and fishing outings, his cooking, his "Winisms" and, humorously, his "sense of style." His friend and business associate Baker Kurrus said it all: "His goodness shall endure."

Note: You can see a replay of the service on the streaming video portion of the Fox 16 website.
