Friends, family pay tribute to Sen. Ted Stevens

Ted Stevens' friends and former colleagues, including Vice President Joe Biden, remembered him at his funeral service as a generous, loyal man who went far beyond partisan politics and was a master in delivering vast sums to the state he embodied. On either side of the lectern, two pairs of toy "Incredible Hulk" fists stood on tables, between bouquets of flowers, a tribute to the fiery senator's comic book alter-ego.
