Muhammad Ali‘s memorial service was punctuated by emotional and humorous stories about his life … as told by his family and famous friends.
Billy Crystal was a close friend and told the packed arena in Louisville about the first time they met … and how Ali reacted to Crystal’s impression of him.
Many, many others spoke during the nearly 4-hour long ceremony. A scruffy Crystal joked, “I was clean shaven when this started.”
Ali’s widow, Lonnie … 3 of his daughters … Sen. Orrin Hatch and Bryant Gumbel also shared their memories.
President Bill Clinton delivered the final eulogy of the memorial, talking about the one thing Ali never got enough credit for — his intelligence.
