It was Gary's funerals today in Florida where he was living.

There were a lot of people present.

The Big Cat Andres Galaraga was there and he delivered the best speach saying than Gary helped him when Andres had health problems.

There was also Warren Cromartie who said Montreal should be proud of what Gary accomplished, the Expos were the best when Gary was with them.

Daryl Strawberry said Gary Carter was not just a baseball player, he was what all men should aspire to be. Awesome compliment.

And I agree with Darryl. Just as a role model for kids, I mean he was frank, nice to everybody, a family man, outgoing but when he was on the field he had the heart of a lion. He wasn't just talent, he was the most determined guy I had ever seen. He was proud but in a positive way, you know? Sort of a cross between Flower and the Rocket.
