Carl Pohlad remembered at packed Basilica service
More than 1,000 people gathered at the Basilica of St. Mary's to say their final goodbyes Thursday to Twins owner and billionaire banker Carl Pohlad. He died on Monday at the age of 93.
Watch the KARE11 coverage here:
Bob Pohlad choked up several times as he talked about his father's life and his last day alive.
While the rest of his father's body seemed to give up, his heart kept beating, he said. And in his last words to his dad, he tried to let him know that it was OK to go.
"Dad, you don't want to live like this anymore. So go and be with mom. Just say hi for me. I love you dad. More than the world."
