George Floyd’s last public memorial and private funeral service set for Monday and Tuesday in Houston

The final public memorial for George Floyd will take place Monday, between noon and 6 p.m. at the Fountain of Praise church in Houston.

Because of social distancing recommendations, only 15 people will be allowed inside the church at a time for about 10 minutes to remember Floyd, whose death in police custody in Minneapolis has sparked nationwide protests. The church is asking guests to wear masks and take measures, like washing or sanitizing hands, to prevent the spread of the novel corona virus during the services.

On Monday evening, Houston’s Jack Yates High School, where Floyd graduated in 1993, will hold a candlelight vigil starting at 7:30 p.m. on the football field. The alumni association also asked participants to honor social distancing recommendations and wear masks.

A final private service will take place on Tuesday, followed by Floyd’s burial at Houston Memorial Gardens cemetery. The Fountain of Praise church will stream the memorial services online

On Tuesday, June 9th, Mr. George Floyd is anticipated to be entombed at the Houston Memorial Gardens on Cullen Boulevard, south of Beltway 8. With unknown attendance numbers and recognizing the importance of the memorials, there will be an increased law enforcement presence throughout the city and area on Tuesday, June 9th. The Pearland Police Department along with additional law enforcement agencies are committed to keeping everyone in attendance safe while still ensuring the safety and security of the entire city
