Eulogy for a Mime:

Hello. I must admit that I, like many of you probably are, am still a little shocked. My cell phone was on silent, so I didn't learn that Stephen had passed away quietly in his sleep until well into the following day, and when I finally realized the scene being played out before me, I was speechless. I mean, what could I possibly say? Trying to sum up a man's entire life into a single, perfect eulogy would be like walking forever into the strongest imaginable wind. But alas, for Stephen, I will hold the rope. In my life, he was a quiet source of strength, and I'll never forget how he taught me to lead through actions instead of words. Himself a man of few words, Stephen's insistent silence on even the most controversial topics was routinely betrayed by his highly expressive face. Yet speech is silver, silence golden, and as such, he was always — and so remains — the richest of us all. So let us bow our heads for a moment of silence before joining together in Stephen's favorite hymn, John Cage's "4'33," as we lower Stephen's anything-but-invisible box into the earth. And as you leave today, please remember that, in lieu of flowers, Stephen's family has asked that everyone consider contributing to the silent auction back at the house, the proceeds of which benefit the Tourette Foundation Community Health Charity. We all loved you, Stephen. Now, finally, you may rest in peace.

Andrew R. Juhl thanks reader Stephen R. for today's Ledge idea.
