Memorial service held for slain Jennifer Hudson family members
UPI News Service, 11/03/2008
About 100 people attended a private memorial service for Jennifer Hudson's slain mother, brother and nephew Sunday, the Chicago Tribune said.
The newspaper said the dead were eulogized during a private gathering at the Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church. The 300-seat church's doors were later opened for a public memorial, which saw thousands of mourners stopping by to pay their respects and leave messages for the family.
Hudson's mother and brother were shot to death Oct. 24 in their home on Chicago's South Side. The body of Hudson's 7-year-old nephew was discovered in a parked sports utility vehicle on the city's West Side last Monday.
