Medusa;
Thank you for posting that link, even though we couldn't make it to the funeral due to Jimmy's own doctor appointments and health concerns, it was almost like being there. That link was well appreciated by Jimmy & Myself, so thanks again for finding it.

I went yesterday for the viewing at the Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles and it was very fitting. No pictures were allowed which, is understandable. It was an open casket viewing and there was a piano with several sheets of Music ("Gerogia" and "What'd I Say") and a glittered jacket lay across the piano stool. I said a short prayer and my wife and I left.

The local (Los Angeles) NBC station is broadcasting the funeral live. Susaye just gave an inspired rendition of The Lord's Prayer...

Sis...I started taping as soon as I knew it was on. I probably missed 15-20 minutes. I heard no announcements yesterday that NBC AND ABC would be carrying the services....
