Memorial & urn photos published

Forgive me if this is posted in the wrong place/ already posted.

But I was scrolling through Twitter just now and came across photos of today's memorial service which included a photo of the urn, which is purple. They were tweeted by Adrienne Broaddus (@abroaddus) from KARE11 to highlight an interview she's done with P's cousin Charles Chazz Smith. The photos are credited to Smith, so I'm imagining they must have been sanctioned by the family.

Not sure how to feel really. Makes it all seem rather real and final. Sigh.

Just checked that account. As soon as i saw it tears came flooding. I hadn't cried over him for quite awhile now, choosing instead to focus on the music and how wonderful his legacy is and how lucky I am to have seen/heard/felt him. That image made it all quite palpable and tremendously sad.

That picture should not have been tweeted. What does anyone have to gain by seeing it? ffs. This makes me sick.

In fact why is it on display? When is he going to be laid to rest...

What is the memorial service held today that's being referred to?

I am signed up for Prince news feeds. There is a brief article where his cousin was interviewed titled Prince's Family opens up about life after Prince's death. Interesting and will leave it at that. He makes it sound like Prince was definitely in pain. There is a small picture that can be enlarged with someone speaking and the urn to the right, but can't see it unless if it is enlarged.

Please don't attack the family (or the thread-starter) for putting these pictures out there. People have different opinions about what is appropriate or necessary to achieve closure after a death. Some may feel they needed this image. I wish I didn't look, but that was my choice.

PRINCE'S COUSINS WORDS FOR PEOPLE THAT DONT WANT TO CLICK THE LINK. "People making up all of these stories and h said. "You are trying to kill his image. Prince was the kind of dude, if he did have a baby he would’ve taken care of it. You would’ve seen it on a classy level because the man was class. I was proud. I am proud to be his cousin." An autopsy report revealed Prince died of an accidental overdose of the painkiller Fentanyl. Smith said he hopes his death can help others -- those struggling or those who are in need of help. "Being free enough to be able to say, I'm not doing well today. I'm in pain. Can you guys help me? Are you going to make fun of me if I tell you that I am in need, I'm hurting?" he said. "That's really a big lesson, that everybody needs to learn." Smith and his family reached out, in many ways, "in every kind of way you can think of," he said. "Weren't trying to hurt him, or nothing like that, it all came from love," he said. So now, instead of dwelling on the past, Smith and his family is looking to the future. A public tribute for the icon is scheduled for October at U.S. Bank Stadium. Smith said details will be made public at a later time but added, "it is going to be crazy. That is all I am going to tell you." "I learned another thing from (Prince), don’t disclose everything," Smith said. "He always used to say - don’t show them everything, leave something under your sleeve. Keep them wondering

Is Prince's cousin Chaz saying that Prince DID tell them he was in pain and Prince DID reach out and ask them for help - and that they DID in fact try to help?

It's not stated that clearly, so...

Just watched this on local news. Very sad especially as it seems the family knew about P's pain issues. This cousin was very emotional. sad But at the same time his comments made me excited for the memorial in October as he said it was going to be "wild". And I feel that's what Prince would want for his fans. A real party, not a somber affair.

All he said is the family reached out. So it sounds like they knew but hard to tell if P asked for help or not.

It is stated clearly.

He is saying that the lesson everybody needs to learn is to be free enough to ask for help if one is in pain. And that he and his family reached out as best as they could.



I was already still crying every day so I guess more crying for me. sad

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.
