    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 bet there is going to be a wonderful funeral service for her. She’s lived such a wonderful life. I know that a lot of people are sad to see her go. They can give her some respect one last time at her funeral service. http://www.pineviewfuneralservice.com

    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

    I wonder who is doing the funeral arrangements for her funeral. I bet that it’s going to be the most beautiful ceremony ever, and I’m so glad that they are putting on tv for everyone to see. I really hope that people give her the respect that she deserves. http://www.taylorfamilyfuneralhome.com/services.php

    I can’t believe that it’s almost been five months since her funeral. It’s so awesome that we have the internet to go back and watch this beautiful ceremony. These guys really know how to pull off a great funeral ceremony. Dr. Maya Angelou will be missed. http://www.healychapel.com/?page=pg__5

    I have never thought of a funeral being streamed online before. It is nice that people who can’t make it will still be able to watch. I can’t decide whether or not I would like my funeral to be available online. http://conboywestchesterfh.com

    I love Dr. Maya. She was a brilliant mind who’s work will live on. She is such an inspiration to me. I am so sad that she has passed away. http://www.herbwalker.com/store/?icn=top_nav&icc=fs_store

  • Emily Merrell

    I agree with you guys, that is so crazy that almost a year has passed since her funeral. I bet that it was one of the most beautiful services ever. I’m really glad that they posted it online as well. Dr. Maya Angelou deserves nothing less. http://www.lawrybrothers.com
