What a life he had, the man whose death has brought together family and friends from all over the world! The little church in a small, country town, blanketed in snow, echoes with words about one whose life was made of words. He was “Time” magazine’s bureau chief in more cities than anyone else in the history of that august publication. He was a war correspondent, an intrepid reporter all over the world. The man who threw Bobby Kennedy’s 40th birthday party. Father, brother, uncle. Raconteur, bon vivant. No stranger to tragedy, no stranger to joy. A life well lived.
