Nelson Mandela RIP

Sad news about Nelson Mandela passing away this week, not altogether unexpected as he has been ill for some time. I've always been impressed by his aura of human warmth. He was a truly inspirational man and the world is a much richer place for his having lived in it. I believe in marking the occasion of his death with a celebration of his life and all its achievements. A true hero of our time.

It's a shame there is a lot of negative publicity about his funeral and the various ceremonies. It's difficult to discern whether his final wishes were adhered to.
