Mourners, many wearing masks and T-shirts with the words 'I Can't Breathe,' stood 6 feet apart as they paused briefly to view the casket. Some made the sign of the cross as they passed by. On the stage behind the casket were two identical murals of Floyd wearing a black cap that read 'Houston' and angel wings drawn behind him.
Floyd's private funeral will be Tuesday followed by burial at the Houston Memorial Gardens cemetery in suburban Pearland where he will be laid to rest next to his mother, Larcenia Floyd.
Former Vice President Joe Biden traveled to Houston to meet with Floyd's family and provide a video message to be played at Floyd's funeral service. He posed for a photo alongside Floyd's uncle Roger Floyd, Rev Al Sharpton, Floyd's family attorney Ben Crump and Congressman Cedric Richmond.

All this for a career criminal.
All this for a 4-time felon whose most recent crime (before his crime of passing off counterfeit money for which he was killed) was to hold a gun to the head of a pregnant woman while others ransacked her apartment
The manufactured political theater of this is so absurd, its absolutely cartoonish.
The Horst Wessel of BLM.
What’s with the single glove on sharpton? Does he think he is Michel Jackson?
Like the virus this will never end....
are they flying this corpse around the country for photo ops?
good lord, these people are sick
makes me wanna puke. all this for a drug addict, 4 term convict..but that wont stop the virtue signal corps Freepers for the last 3 weeks.
The George knee to the neck incident was the needed catalyst to begin all this mayhem. . . .on purpose for their purpose.
Does anyone know how old his other two kids are? they should have been at the funeral
We know he has a six year old
He is old enough to have adult kids
His brother wants to use the Estate funds as a slush fund but his kids are entitled to that money if he left no will. And even if he did leave a will..his brother cant use it as a slush fund for the family.
The heirs are entitled to it.
I wonder how much money that funeral is costing. $500,000 or more?
Capitol Rotunda next...
Are they going to pickle him and open a permanent shrine next?
Somethings been bothering me:
If Floyd couldn’t breath, how could he say “I can’t breathe.”
Probably has people paying for it and things at cost.
His Gofundme funds are allowed to pay for it as a matter of his estate
HOWEVER, his heirs could claim it was extravagant and money was spent recklessly
Brother claims he is in charge of money and can spend it how he wants for family
Not true if those funds are considered part of Floyd’s estate.
Somebody at the funeral home better check inside of George Floyd’s coffin before he is dropped in the dirt.
It just crossed my mind that one of George’s friends might drop a Nickle or Dime Bag of ‘something’ in the coffin with him.
I know that sounds bonkers. Think of it this way, Egyptian Kings used to be buried with many of their worldly treasures.
This was the mourner’s way of showing support, hoping that the deceased would enjoy his new spiritual life with a little more ease, now that he had something with him.
“Whats with the single glove on sharpton?”
He uses it to touch the Torah/Bible. Otherwise, he catches on fire.
I’m waiting for the George Floyd Casket Tour T-shirt with the dates on the back:
Minneapolis, MN June 4, 2020
Raeford, NC June 6, 2020
Houston, TX June 8, 2020
