Laying to rest a King

More than 7,000 people attended my father’s funeral services. They spanned three days and included a viewing, six hour memorial service, a parade/ funeral march through the streets of DC and a private burial. Ft. Lincoln funeral home and cemetery did a phenomenal job. I will never forget the folks there and their care and respect. It was evident they were passionate about what they do and I was fortunate to have found them. From August to January, I’ve had one focus: legacy protection. Now, I intend to continue my focus while we hit the road. The first leg of our travel will have us in Los Angeles. Currently, there is a Broadway-bound play, a documentary and a feature film in varying stages of completion, all based on my father’s life. This first entry is about our relocation to LA after shutting down our lives in Washington, DC.
