Today, there are no quotes from Jay-Z. Today there will be no digressions. Today there is no soapbox, and no rant. Today there will be no “SonnyRedd”, and no “Lucky.”
Today is not a day for the debate. The relative pros and cons of this or that course of action are immaterial and irrelevant. That is for tomorrow, and tomorrow’s tomorrow.
Today there is only remembrance.
We remember you, Steven Elliot Furman. We remember your dedication to God. We remember you as a father of four wonderful children. We remember you as husband to Chava. Today we remember you.
And although we never had the pleasure to meet you, we will never forget you.
