ÒThe King family had had to share him with the world all his life, and now he was finally home. He once voiced how he wished to be remembered and those words resonated at his funeral. ÔIÕd like someone to mention that I tried to be right on the war question É that I did try to feed the hungry É that I did try, in my life, to clothe those who were naked É that I did try, in
my life, to visit those who were in prison É that I tried to love and serve humanity.ÕÓ
