The real work was done by Kelli and Fran Ashbridge, and by Michael and Lynette Dunn. And, of course Wendy. The overall strategic planning was done back in February. I delegated most of the actual tactical implementation other than a few yes/no questions with Mike several weeks back. The actual service was exactly the way I wanted it. Thanks for a perfect send-off.
I have said several times that you can measure the value of your own life by the value of the friends who choose to associate with you. I thank all of Wendy's friends for proving her value by, er, just being her friends. I thank both families, both mine and Wendy's, for their support through this period.
I will be posting a couple of extracts from the speeches once I get back to Calgary. (The internet connection I'm using to post this is very flakey and will fall over at any moment.)
