Arriving at Michigan Stadium for the memorial service for Bo, was a lot like arriving for a Saturday game. It brought tears to my eyes walking in because there was the Big House in all its glory, it has been so many years since I have been in the stadium, and it's like it was yesterday, and because Bo was not there to see the thousands of people filing in to pay respects, and because my 4 year old daughter was in Michigan Stadium for the first time and expected to see a football game. It was truly a celebration of Bo's life. I could see young and old, singles, families, couples, high school students, disabled in wheelchair, someone with a leader dog, groups of alumni, the stage, the speakers, the band, the diginiaries, the family and friends, the former players, all gathered together under a sunny sky that could have been a beautiful fall day except for the November chill. A great leader had passed on yet when you walk into Michigan Stadium you are consumed by the sense that you are not only walking into a place, you are walking into an experience that combines all other experiences in your life and all future possibilities and they all come together into a moment where you are living life to the fullest just as the man did who we all came to honor. It was sad and we mourned him yet we blazed with the spirit and with the emotion bourne of tradition that can be no other school. And we celebrated. We sang "The Victors" many more times than we ever have at any football game, feeling fiercely in our hearts that Bo was hearing the song and rejoicing in our love and devotion. So many gray haired alumni and so many younger people in attendance, proving that Bo's legacy will continue to influence future generations just as his predecessors did. The buildings that bear their name.. the students that fill the halls.... the lessons and the examples that were learned.. there can be no greater meaning to a life on this earth.
