New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo gave an emotional eulogy Tuesday for his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo.
At his core he was a philosopher and he was a poet, an advocate and he was a crusader. Mario Cuomo was the keynote speaker for our better angels. He was there to make the case, to argue and convince and in that purist he could be a ferocious opponent and powerful ally. And he was beautiful. [The Wall Street Journal]
Hundreds attended the funeral, held at a Roman Catholic church on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Mario Cuomo died last week at age 82, right after his son was sworn in for his second term as governor.
