This video is about 7 minutes long- I really liked it.  It's a collection of messages of sorrow, and celebrations of Neil's life.  I'm sorry I couldn't get it to play directly on here but I don't know how to embed the Facebook stuff.

I have watched the video several times and there is so much in it I didn't even catch that image of only two until you pointed it out. I agree, it's really poignant. :(

Beautiful, and brutal...

Sometimes I still can't believe it.

Brings it all back again, I wish it wasn't true :(

Only thing about that video is it needs to be slower so you can read the tributes.

I listened to The Pass earlier, which is one of my favourites due to the hooky melody (rare for Rush) and, of course, wonderful storytelling.

Ach!
I am not an emotional person, despite a lot of death and sickness around me growing up, I don't dwell on sadness. I am often called "the funny one", I prefer life with smiles.
I got upset a couple of times over the news, I had my solo snow shoe and flinted a small fire and had a very small "glass" of scotch in his memory.
I can read articles and the soooo many tributes and yes it is sad, but they are on my time, you know?
But this whole collage of tributes is a lot to take. In a good way, but it really hits.
I was alright until I saw the owl with tears. Yup. Then another image, then another, then...I was glad nobody walked into the study...I was losing it there for a while.
It is just so unfair. As is often the case...but still, so unfair.

Thank you blueschica for posting the link.

(Edit: And to the folks at Rushcon, if you are watching, can you edit the video to be one second longer on each clip? Yes there is alot of content out there, but this is good, we want to pause each and every moment. Don't be shy now!)
