    I’m so glad they’re going to stream her funeral online. I have always been a fan of Dr. Maya Angelou, and it is going to be so great that so many people have the opportunity to pay their respects to her. She really affected so many lives for the better. http://friedrichsfuneralhome.com/

    I agree, it’s nice to be able to watch and give her my respects. It is kind of weird to think that a funeral is going to be filmed, but I guess these days everything is filmed. Now I have no excuses to miss it. http://www.healychapel.com/?page=pg__5

    It would be so great to be able to attend this funeral in person, but I understand perfectly why they would only want family and close friends there. She has so many fans, and there’s no way they would be able to fit everyone in there. I will watch the broadcast for sure though. http://www.taylorfamilyfuneralhome.com/services.php

    That seems very considerate to stream the funeral online. There are a lot of people who want to attend this funeral in persona but cannot. This allows all those that loved her to have a connection to the funeral. The funeral director made a good call in this idea.

    I’ve never heard of someone’s funeral being streamed online before. I’m sure it’s been done, though. I bet she has a lot of fans that would like to pay their respects.

    I know that this is going to be a wonderful service. What time is it going to be broadcasted, because I will watch it for sure. Dr. Maya was such a wonderful woman, and I wish I could have met her. http://www.fluehrfh.com/fh/additionallink/additionallink.cfm?page=2&fh_id=14176

    Does anybody know where they are planning on burying her? Actually, this is an older article, so I’m sure that she is already buried. I would love to go to her gravestone sometime and pay my respects. She lived such an inspirational life, and changed so many lives for the better. http://www.elmwoodcaskets.com/services-products/markers-headstones-monuments.aspx
