Tuesday night we suffered the unfortunate passing of Hip-Hip icon Heavy D, and now his family is planning two memorials to celebrate his legacy.
First, Radar Online reports that a memorial for will be held next Wednesday, November 16, at the Yannantuono Funeral Home in Mt. Vernon, New York from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. And the family is planning a second “private” memorial for November 17 at Grace Baptist Church, also in Mt. Vernon.
Although TMZ has a conflicting report stating that the ceremonies will be held on different dates than previously reported, it is also being said that invited guests of the family include Diddy, Mary J. Blige, the Wayans brothers as well as Eddie F and G-Whiz (former members of Heavy D and the Boyz).
TheYBF.com spoke directly with a representive from Yannantuono Funeral Home who said they could not confirm a specific day for the memorial because they are still in the “planning” stages with the family.
And while reports have surfaced that the rapper visited his doctor with flu-like symptoms, possibly pneumonia, just one day before he died suddenly, it will be a few weeks before the coroner offically releases a cause of death via toxicology reports.
