*A new memorial website has been set up in Heavy D’s honor.
RememberHeavyD.com gives details of the public memorial to be held Thursday from noon until 6 p.m. at Grace Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon, New York. It also includes information on how to donate to the Heavy D and Xea Myers Fund, which has been established in support of Heavy D’s daughter.
A Heavy D hotline number can also be found at the site along with instructions for flower delivery.
As reported, a funeral for the Jamaica-born, Queens-raised musician-turned-actor is scheduled for the following day, Nov. 18, also at the Grace Baptist Church. P. Diddy and Rev. Al Sharpton are expected to speak, according to the Associated Press.
An autopsy, as previously reported, proved to be inconclusive with toxicology results pending. Reports cited that Heavy D was experiencing difficulty breathing and collapsed. It could be several weeks before the cause of death is revealed.
