A prayer with the refrain "we will remember him" opened a public memorial for San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Sunday.

Rabbi Beth Singer led those gathered at city hall in prayer after praising the late mayor's justice, mercy, and humility.

The 65-year-old Lee, the son of Chinese immigrants and San Francisco’s first Asian-American mayor, died last week.

Acting mayor London breed recalled a trip to China with Lee.

Breed said he received a pop star's welcome in his parents' home country - like "a Beyoncé with a mustache."
