[vodpod id=Video.15709445&w=540&h=350&fv=]

Earlier today, family and friends said their farewells to Heavy D who passed away last Tuesday. The private funeral service was held at the Grace Baptist Church in Mount Vernon NY. Kid N Play’s DJ Wiz reflected with MTV on the times he had with Heav.

During the service, Rev. Al Sharpton called Heavy’s daughter Xea Myers to the podium to read a written message from President Obama.

“We extend our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time,” the note from Obama read. “He will be remembered for his infectious optimism and many contributions to American music. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.”

Those who said their goodbyes included Diddy, Jay-Z, Queen Latifah, Will Smith, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Denzel Washington and more.

    MAn when i see this or amy winehouse or MJ or marley etc.

    Let/s just hope/pray he does not make them 50 million of is catalogue or more after he passes..new album,re-release etc.

    iI/s like this natural death that was your fault but something else human made you push off the edge like that…this biz looks like a dangerous manipulator to your own falls = money.

    illuminati ain’t shit it/s an alibi for you fools on aprils day where dealing with something bigger like freemansory it/s even in what you say your education it.s something that is also part of showbizness…remember puzò godfather pt.1 when Duval goes to hollywood and he/s like your refusing are offer that/s a mistake sir and then they take it all over.
    puzò was a writer occupational therapist from NY for masonry the legal mafia like lucky luciano& the commission wanted re do it all legal/// so to hopefully push aside masonry puzo took a risk and let them take is ideas to hopefully bring it back to the old traditions and not what it was becoming already in the 60/s so let/s pray that the blacks and the good italians want to push masonry off..so we have to trust jay-z and obama there at the top and things are happening.
    Good bless america
