Goodbye, Luc

06/02/2008 at 5:48pm EDT

From the eulogies at Luc Bourdon’s funeral today, put together by Bal Brach* at Canwest, via the National Post:

In another eulogy, Mr. Bourdon, 21, was described as a courageous, tenacious, yet simple man.

“You went down your dream road and you never stopped dreaming,” added another speaker in French. “For that and more we thank you.”

“To the Vancouver Canucks, thank you for believing in Luc. When you selected him, part of the town of Shippagan became fans (of the Vancouver Canucks).”

The tributes continued as Mr. Bourdon was described as a diamond. “All together we made the diamond shine and glow.”

Mr. Bourdon’s casket was draped with his jersey and white roses.

Read on. A collection of lovely, but heart-breaking, sentiments.
