George Floyd‘s loved ones will pay their final respects in Houston Tuesday … which has officially been declared George Floyd Day in the area.
Floyd’s hometown funeral is the last of four services held for him over the past few days. The ceremony will be held at Fountain of Praise Church — just like Monday’s public viewing — and then he’ll be buried in a grave beside his mother’s.
George’s family also spoke and delivered a powerful message, saying they believe if he had known he needed to sacrifice his life to bring the world together … he would have done it.
Floyd was honored last week in Minneapolis, and then again in his birth state of North Carolina over the weekend.
Of course, George’s death has touched millions of people around the world, sparked international protests and demonstrations in his name … and could lead to an overhaul of policing across the U.S., as evidenced by what’s happening with the Minneapolis PD.
The cops involved in his killing have been criminally charged. Derek Chauvin is facing second-degree murder for having his knee on George’s neck for nearly 9 minutes. The other 3 officers — Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao — have also been charged with felonies, aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
