It was a nice moment at the park in memory of Dre. Some people got up to share stories and reasons why we all cherish and adore him and it was very nice. Our sympathies go out to all of you that have since moved too far away from the city and/or the scene and can't reach out to someone directly to share your wonderful memories of Dre. Find solace in knowing that everyone is always willing to talk about him whenever and you're not alone in feeling for him. His impression left on us all isn't gonna be going anywhere.
Memorial services will be held this weekend. Friday (11/19) will be visitation and viewing from 3 PM - 9 PM. The wake and funeral will be on Saturday (11/20) at 11 AM - Noon then Noon - 1 PM, respectively. The location is A. A. Rayner & Sons Modern Funeral Service at 5911 W Madison.
We will be organizing a group bicycle ride to the services on Saturday. Expect a departure around 10 AM from the Billy Goat's at 1535 Madison. If you believe in 4 day early forecasts I challenge your credibility as a Chicagoan but will humor you with pointing out it looks to be sunny but chilly. If things turn too difficult I will arrange for the bus to transport us all from Billy Goats.
Finally, this video has been making its rounds but I can't stress enough how beautifully this captures Dre in his essence. Man that laugh and energy says it all...
