Jennifer Hudson and Family Announce Public Memorial Details

| Filed under: Jennifer HudsonSad Sad

hudsonslayings.jpg

On Sunday, November 2nd, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., a public memorial for Jennifer Hudson's tragically slain family members will be held at Chicago's Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church.

A rep released the following statement on behalf of Jennifer and family: "The Hudson family welcomes anyone who wishes to attend and pay their respects to these three beloved members of the Chicago community."

Jennifer and her sister, Julia, will not attend the public memorial.

And, a reminder.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for any contributions to be sent to the newly created Hudson-King Domestic Violence Protection Fund, care of Seaway Bank and Trust, P.O. Box 19522, Chicago, IL, 60619.

We hope justice is served very, very soon.

    It would be so nice if people did a bit of research before opening their mouths about politics. William Ayers was a part of a domestic terrorist group known as the Weather Underground on the 1960's. Just FYI - Although the group did bomb buildings, they also made SPECIFICALLY SURE that there was NO ONE in the vicinity of the bombings so no one would be hurt. Yeah, that sounds like a really scary terrorist.

    Who cares? 1000 people are murdered every day, why are these people so special? Cause some "one hit wonder" chick thats related to them is famous?



  3. 3

    first!



  4. 4

    On top of that, it was the 60's!!! You had radical groups like the Black Panthers, Malcolm X, and yes, even the HIPPIES - those peace and love people that protested vehemently against the Vietnam War. The treatment of African Americans, the Vietnam War, the aggressiveness of the US government. All of these were what the WU rallied against. Doesn't sound so bad if you ask me!



  5. 5

    This is so heartbreaking!!!! I hope they find some peace in knowing that they are in a better place…

  7. 7

    first!!!!!!

    meltz - she is not only a celebrity. she's also a daughter, a sister, and an aunt. for you to say that it is any less than a tragedy because she's famous is just ignorant. she is not "special" she is one of us - human! that's what makes it so sad. go hug your mom, idiot.

    "We learn our lesson from the start, my sisters and me, the only thing you can depend on is your family, lifes gonna drop you down like the limbs of a tree, It sways and it swings and it blends until it makes you see" MADONNA. THIS IS SOOOO TRUE.NO ONE CAN ESCAPE FROM THIS!

    Wow - this is the comment section for the Hudson slayings??? Why doesn't they guy in the cow suit and the French chick just swap emails and get it over with - this is not appropriate. And Mr Cow Suit - you're just a poor excuse for a fight waiting to happen - you attack so many people on here for so many lame reasons - I don't think you have a better life - a midnight ER surgery??? Please, we're not all as deluded as you.

    AS FOR THE POST: SAD, AND I HOPE THE MOTHER CAN FIND PEACE AND FORGIVE HERSELF FOR BRINGING THAT HORRIBLE MAN AROUND HER FAMILY…POOR LITTLE BOY



  38. 38

    Re: Julianne – He gets off on the attention - just ignore him and don't lower yourself to those games. You really haven't been much better yourself and you've annoyed a lot of people here to. So take the higher ground and just ignore him. One or two responses back and forth is OK but anymore than that and you're just feeding him what he wants.



  39. 39

    it's really horrible that these responses have been an argument between two people. please ignore eachother, or take it to a different blog post (or better yet, to email).

    may her family rest in peace and the fucker that did this rot in prison.



  40. 40

    Awww prayers go with her…So unfortunate.=(



  41. 41

    Call me Jen if you want him tortured. I would love to inflict pain on him. It would make me feel good. Sorry girl.



  42. 42

    Re: Mistress – HE??? LOL NOT A REAL PIC…WTF?



  43. 43

    Re: LusciousLiz – SHUT UP! YOU ALWAYS ACT LIKE YOU'RE SO DAMN SPECIAL…YOU'RE NOT SO PISS OFF! I WISH YOU WOULD GO AWAY…YOU PUT PEOPLE DOWN ALL THE TIME AND YET YOU TRY TO PRETEND YOU'RE SUCH A KIND PERSON.
    .
    .
    YOU'RE A BITCH LIZ, PLAIN AND SIMPLE, A FUCKEN BITCH!



  44. 44

    I've always wondered what they do with all of the toys and stuffed animals?
    Do they donate them?



  45. 45

    jen, just remember you are young, beautiful, and you have a bright future. losing a loved one is hard, but you gotta keep your chin up girl. love ac

    Re: meltz9111
    Yes 1000 people die daily, and my heart goes out to each and everyone that I hear about. But I think that you need to be careful of what you say, they are God's children and that's what make them special. Not because they are related to Jennifer Hudson, but because they are people, and their lives were cut short by non-sense, that's why I care. But the bible tells to be careful in the manner in which we judge, because you shall (absolute promise) be judged in that same manner. If it happened to you, how would you want people to react? Would you want them to post foolish comments, such as yourself. Or would you want them to react and respond in such away that would remind you or reassure you that you are "special?" Think about it. Just be care what you say, thats all. God Bless

    Re: Julianne
    are you guys really serious? Why would you say those awful things to some one? Wow I am amazed



  48. 48

    Re: Juliannes Mom
    Do you really mean that? what if she really went to cut her wrist how would you feel? Or if someone told you child that, how would you feel? Be careful of the things that you say. I am just shocked at some of the things that you guys are saying back in forth.



  49. 49

    Biden's Monkey……my feelings are very hurt. I can't believe the things you said…especially when I am so open to different people's opinions….the only time I am mean is when someone is down right disrespectful & rude…other than that I can honestly tell you I respect everyone :-)



  50. 50

    He's a she??? Interesting . . .



  51. 51

    This is so heartbreaking :'(



  52. 52

    Many people do not realize just how ugly domestic violence can get. It happens more often than people know.
    This guy is a sick guy and should go to jail for life, he is menace to society.
    For those who w/say they should kill him…keep in mind it will cost chi-town tax payers more money to put that sucker to sleep than to keep him alive in jail, However I do belive this w/turn into a capital case and he will probably start talking like a b_atch to say his ass.

  55. 55

    I don't really like Jennifer, but that just sucks. This goes to show that no matter how famous you become, you're not immuned to crime.



  56. 56

    who the fuck is going to clean all that shit up? o thats right its chicago, no one will. i am so sick of this shit. kids get killed everyday all over the world. only in the united states can a fat tv 'singer' appear on every news station with her fat arms swinging around and everyone cries. WAKE UP PEOPLE

  65. 65

    Some people on here that leave comments are so f&*kin stupid they dont need to talk because if it was their family they would want the world to know their loss.All of people care if you dont know and she's not a one hit wonder.Her name is Jennifer Hudson and is this wrong what had happen.Pepole are not just making this a big deal because she is famous this is wrong and people need to do something to stop it.So for people who anything eles to do just shut up and you are only ones who dont care.
