Kim Porter Laid To Final Rest at Funeral

Today Saturday November 24 in Columbus, Georgia, a service is set to be held for the late Kim Porter, who passed away unexpectedly on November 15, after weeks of battling what she believed was the flu.

1,200 people are expected to attend will attend the service at the Cascade Hills megachurch to say their final goodbyes.

Among the attendees — which will include Mary J Blige — is friend Faith Evans, who according to a TMZ report is going to perform during the service. Diddy was said to be instrumental in helping her cope with the loss of her husband Notorious B.I.G. following his 1997 murder and this is simply her way of returning that love.

Mourners arrive for Kim Porter’s Georgia funeral as it remains unclear whether Diddy will give the eulogy because of his ‘fragile emotional state’ after he pens heartfelt tribute an hour before the ceremony according to The Daily Mail.

Kim will be buried next to her mother Sarah Lee Porter who died in 2014. 

God broke the mold when he made Kim, there was truly no other woman like her. Although her time here on earth was far too short, she lived a life full of purpose and meaning. She was a loving mother and devoted friend. She was the epitome of kindness and grace.

There wasn’t a person she met who’s soul she did not touch. Kim was the type of woman who changed lives for the better. Although we’ve lost our best friend, God has gained a special angel and we know she is watching over us. She will be forever remembered and missed by so many. As a family, we promise to honor her every day of our lives. We love you always. The Porter, Goodwin and Combs families.
