8:03 am
his leadership skills from the tribal chic. the services ran a little longer than expected but nobody complained about that. we heard from someone who is one of his cellmates, ahmad cabr, a d action who says there's a void in my life monopoly i don't know where to turn. we heard from one of his 18 grandchildren who spoke for the family. and i love this saying the song is over but you don't forget the melody. when we first started the funeral they said listen we're going to stick to time because he has to be in the ground by noon. that of course did not happen because they said you need more than 2 1/2 hours to lay nelson mandela to rest. but nobody complained about the length of the service. nobody. >> gayle, there in the front row, his two former wives almost side by side. >> and, you know that's the thing, charlie. that was so striking to everyone. winnie mandela and graca michelle walked in hand to hand together. they spent most of this past week together, i have to say.
8:04 am
things haven't always been so good between the two of them. but they put all their differences aside this past week. we were invited to the home two days ago and spent time with graca michel. when i say we it was oprah, steadman, her partner of many years, and forest whitaker. at one point it was just the four of us in the room with graca michel. and we were asking her how she felt and she said, you know i'm still trying to process it. the week that he died she said he had a very rough week. wednesday and thursday he rallied and, you know, everyone thought he was better. and the doctors came to her very late thursday evening and said you better come we feel that it's time. and she said even when you're prepared, when the moment comes, you are not prepared. she said even now she is still trying to process it. >> you know, you couldn't be more dignified than she has been as his wife as well as by his side when he was dying. >> reporter: it is so true. i wanted to introduce to jerry
8:05 am
inzerillo, a family friend who was invited. we were talking about the relationships between winnie and graca. one of the most touching things was to see them holding hands and winnie wiping graca's tears away. i will never forget that. so, jerry, how will you sum it up, these past ten days? you know i was watching one of the villagers in qunu saying a big tree has fallen. that took me for a second because i thought what a lovely thing to say about him. >> it is a lovely thing. if you can compare him to a great tree, he was one of the greatest we ever had, but knowing his devotion to children especially when he got out of prison, he would often say the tiny seed carries the prom for the mighty tree. mandela would want children. it's their time now. i think of my own 7-year-old daughter, it's their time to lead now. so the inspiration and his leadership has to bring many generations of new leaders. and the thing i was most touched
8:06 am
about yesterday and this dignified great man was laid into the ground, is it occurred to me that somewhere in the world, some country, a baby is born that's going to be the next nelson mandela. >> i get that. go ahead, norah. >> i was going to say you did a great job on fais"face the nation" yesterday. it was good to see you there. bob said something on the air that it's not events that make history or timing it's people who make history. good point, jerry. what will go on in terms of continuing the legacy of mandela in south africa and elsewhere? >> reporter: go ahead. >> i think there's two things. and there's protocols that were put in place because, you know, even as far back as 1993 when president mandela won his nobel peace prize prior to being president, he said, you know it's not about me. it never has been. it has to be about the future generations. and that was the beginning of setting up the nelson mandela children's fund. then when he felt that the
8:07 am
nelson mandela fund had that protocol in place, he widened it to set up the nelson mandela foundation, which had to do with women's rights reconciliation, having people get along. you know, yesterday's burial was very, very sweet because you had over 20 different religious leaders of all faiths all colors honoring him, and that's the way he wanted it. you know, he's really the ambassador, really the father of the rainbow nation. the global rainbow nation not just south africa. >> reporter: and yesterday at the burial i think it was very special. they said they were going to televise the burial. there was tv cameras there in place shooting in all different directions. and right before the casket was to be lowered in the ground i saw a family member say, cut, cut, cut now. but during the burial service after his casket was lowered in the grave the family members came one by one and walked around and took a piece of dirt and a flower and laid it inside the casket.
8:08 am
then they invited heads of state to come and do the same. then they laid out his tombstone, which is a very elaborate tombstone. i'm curious what you think about that because people who know him best say he would not have liked all this pomp and circumstance. graca told us that night he said to her when i go, put he in the ground with a pine box and put a stone on it. she told him if i die before you, that may happen. but not if you die before me. do you think he would have liked all that yesterday? >> he would have said why are you making such a fuss over me? >> jerry and gayle, thank you so much. a remarkable opportunity to see one of the great men of our time make his final journey to his home village. you both have helped us understand it. hurry home gayle. we miss you. >> reporter: i'm getting on a plane in two hours. see you in the morning. >> another legend is being remembered this morning. actor peter o'toole was a giant of the screen and stage. he cut a figure in real life.

8:10 am
year," he portrayed a fading alcoholic movie star famous for playing a big-screen swashbuckler. >> i'm not an actor! i'm a movie star! >> reporter: in real life he soebed up after a long stint of hard drinking and wild antics. he worked for nearly 60 years. his final oscar nomination for "venus" in 2006. >> have you ever been in love before? >> reporter: he has the dubious nominated actor to never win an academy award. but in 2003 at age 70 o'toole received an honorary oscar. >> always a bridesmaid, never a bride. i have my very own oscar now to be with me till death us do part. >> amazing man. i had a number of conversations with him and did a "60 minutes" profile. we were in london together and it was a memorable time. >> yeah. incredible actor. >> incredible actor. he and richard harris and richard burton you think of these giants who made such a

culture. >> right. i think the trick is if guys are at a football game they're probably talking about things other than themselves. >> women. >> that can be a good thing times. what defines a great friendship? what are the key to a great friendship? >> according to the men that we interviewed, if you can share with somebody else if you trust them, they're dpent dent and loyal. men want people who have their back and will be with them no mat whaer the situation is. >> do you think that's true for women? >> i do. a great friendship is a real as opposed to a virtual relationship. the facebook friends aren't the real friendships that are going to sustain you. >> i think an act of friendship is instinctively knowing what's important to that other person and being there for them whether it's some moments in their life or whether it's just some tragedy in their life.

8:40 am
>> you're a shining example. >> but also i'm not married. >> there are a lot of men that say they don't have women friendships, that they wishz they had them but they had to have a sexual attraction to them in some way. >> i think that's generational. readers in 20s and 30s, they've grown up being men's equals. i think things are changing. >> great to have both of you. >> thank you. >> and you'll meet the man whose slow cooking could
