The following eulogy was written and delivered by Patrick Tam at the February 23 funeral Mass for Fr Rudy Mohammed at St Theresa’s RC Church, Woodbrook.
To the Mohammed family, clergy and friends, today we say goodbye to our dear brother, uncle, colleague and friend.
A eulogy is a speech in praise of someone. This one took some thought, not because I could not find good things to say, but because this man lived a life defined by only good deeds, so many that I did not know what to include or what to leave out. In the end I decided to describe only one which characterised all the others.
