Good article about his funeral! I happened to be able to attend. I was in the process of moving out of NYC, but I was there that day and when I walked down 5th Ave, I thought I would see if I could join the line and get in. I was lucky enough to do so (I remember the moment with the pro-abortion pols standing!!!) and to be able to go up to the casket afterwards. I still have the holy card from his funeral.

How truly blessed to be there at that time, especially to witness the Clintons squirming in the pew. I watched it on tv and cried all the way through. For many years, while working in Manhattan, I would attend noontime Mass at St. Patrick's. It is such a magnificent Cathedral.
