The Memorial Service for Joe Sarnoff was held yesterday in the
Sarnoff Barrington Student Union here on campus.
The scheduled speakers were all very poignant, sharing happy memories of Joe’s affect on their lives. It was all wonderful. It was all true. But it was all…SOMBER. There’s nothing WRONG with that. After all, a loved one has passed. We are all mourning. But after reading some memories for someone who could not be in attendance, I decided the room needed a break so I shared MY greatest memory involving Joe and got some well-needed (and deserved!) smiles and laughter out of the crowd. Here it is. I apologize for the audio. The iPhone’s mic is great up-close, but not so much from 15 feet away, apparently.
Here’s a link to the video.
