A memorial service was held for humorist Art Buchwald. Media luminaries, dignitaries, family and friends eulogized Buchwald with warm and funny stories about his wit, love, generosity, and talent. Two extended video clips were shown, one of Buchwald speaking humorously at the 1981 Kennedy Center honors, and one of friends and family visiting with him at his 81st birthday party. More than 1100 persons attended the memorial service.
