I attended a funeral on Sunday for a family friend who passed away from cancer. Maurice was what you would call a 'gentle soul', very caring and kind. The Minister spoke about hearing the RAK message on the Guelph radio station last Friday as he was preparing for the service. The message struck a note with him and of course then went on to draw similarities as to the meaning of RAK and my friend's father. He went on to talk about the importance of RAK and how in a world where there are too many random acts of violence we need to make sure that we persevere in our work in creating a kinder society.
