Who’s going to stop these funerals in Chester during coronavirus?

Black folks love a funeral. That’s not to say we welcome death or even desire to attend a funeral, but let there be a funeral of someone we may know just a little bit, there’s a chance it will draw a crowd around here. We even have a group of professional mourners who show up at every funeral and think nothing of being there for a complete stranger while staying all the way to the repast. 

I’m sure if I did a little research I’d find how our ancestors have done it big when it comes to sending off our loved ones in ceremonious style. It’s in our DNA to stage a funeral with as much of the best stuff we can afford like costly caskets, limonene processions, professionally designed programs printed on costly stock, flowers, rugs, video tributes, full choir ensembles, Stellar Award worthy soloists, fiery eulogists, and long readings of Hallmark cards and proclamations. If they’re affiliated with fraternities, sororities, or Masonic like organizations, expect a preamble to the regular service.

Well maybe if you do something about all the murders in the city of Chester you wouldn’t have to worry about burying 15 year old babies.

Well spoken. I feel for those who have lost a love one during this pandemic. Certainly the family and friends of the deceased are aware of the risks and perhaps decided to take the risk to attend the funeral of their loved one just as they do when they’re going to the crowded supermarkets to feed their families.

NO ONE CAN STOP WHAT GOD BRINGS TOGETHER 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 DEVIL GET BEHIND THEE. YES WE HAD A FULL SERVICE ONE TRAGEDY OF A LOVING RESPECTFUL YOUNG MAN AND HIS TRAGEDY SAVED A LOT OF PEOPLE LIFE YESTERDAY. #BallLikeRicky has left this earth and OUR FAMILY GRIEVES but God said I brought my angel home and at the cost of that I lot of young people gave there life to Christ at his funeral. So I must say to whomever had a problem with his funeral. All you had to do was stay home. SEE IF GOD IS FOR US THEN WHO CAN BE AGAINST US. GOD SAID EVEEY KNEE SHALL BOW. THE FAMILY WOULD LIKE RO THANK EACH AND EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT TO SHOW THERE LOVE AND SUPPORT FOR #BallLikeRicky 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

The person who sent me the pick told me it was someone else’s funeral. I’m so sorry for all the pain this post has caused. I’ve read your comments and deleted the post. I was wrong.

You need to watch what roles off your tongue when ppl are still grieving and I don’t think that this is an appropriate article to right. Why didn’t you speak about how this funeral had a great impact on the way all those young black men gave their life to Christ just for BALLLIKELIKRICKY. You need to be shut down and we will make it happen with the help of our community who feel that you have no heart or filter.
