lov4u I think we should take matters into our own hands and just plan something on the org or call Spike. Didn't the family already have a memorial? Haven't his friends already had one to?

So if the fan memorial is August 15, whose going?

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

TBD = To Be Decided.............. Read the last paragraph. More info to follow when it's all settled.

There is nothing for August 15.

Thanks for posting. My thoughts are with the family. Planning a "normal" persons memorial is hard enough. So a superstar like Prince, who is also a loved one can't be easy

I can respect her for letting us know, but 3 months later I'm over it, but I hope it's deserving of P's legacy.

Must got a whole lotta family I'd imagine coming in from various places, just getting that sorted out is a biggie I'm thinking.

I am with nursev. But I'm not going there becasue my side eye is starting to make my head hurt and I need a copy of Prince at Montreux in 2013.

morningsong I love your spirit, why did you choose morningsong for your name?

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

I'm guessing the cost of putting on a public memorial is what's keeping it from happening. That's too bad someone as significant and iconic as Prince, and who has legions of fans all around the world, hasn't had a proper public memorial. It almost seems like too much time has passed already. Who waits that long? I'm not trying to be critical of Tyka or anyone else. I'm sure it hasn't been easy for her. (The lack of a will didn't help.) I do hope the two events already planned go well and are befitting a "Prince".

It really is my name in it's simplest form. Not a creative gesture on my part at all, that's my dad's doing.

Wow, I can't get over it. I watched my dad take his last breath, unexpetedly, within days of loosing my Prince. I just can't get past it, both of them at the same time. It's just too much. Since April 21st, there hasn't been a moment of piece in my head or a day without tears. I can't get past the image of my beautiful dad taking his last breath, nor can I get pass the thought of my beautiful Prince being in that elevator all alone and needing help and no one was there.

Spike Lee had a block party on Princes birthday in June for us regular folks and it was free. It was mentioned that it was his "annual" party. He may be planning something else, but I haven't heard anything

Yes, this is a prettyman, Princey!

I'm so so sorry for your loss. Feel free to send me a OrgNote if you need a shoulder to cry on. I know what its like to lose a parent hug

FYI: The siblings have not been declared official heirs. Bremer trust merely found that the documentation the siblings submitted was legally sufficient to find they were Prince's legal siblings, and as a result there was no need for DNA testing on them. There has been no cash distributed nor will there be until the Judge signs an Order stating they are heirs and that financial proceeds can be made to heirs. By the way, Im over it too. At least Spike and BET gave him a timely Tribute. So, today's statement in no way comforts me.

Thanks for that because I was wondering if I missed something about them being declared official heris. Anyway, I'm also over it and I feel like the BET tribute was it for me and I'm on to the closure stage.

Have U had your + today?

Always felt the hold up was money issues. What can you do if you can't afford something big like this?

Nice message there from Tyka. I hope they stream it.
"We just let people talk & say whatever they want 2 say. 9 times out of 10, trust me, what's out there now, I wouldn't give nary one of these folks the time of day. That's why I don't say anything back, because there's so much that's wrong" - P, Dec '15

I thank Tyka, and the rest of the family. Yeah, that's my Dad's bday soooo I'm with him. But needless to say, my heart can't take another 'homegoing' for P. It hurts too deep. But blessings to them all. May it be great!!!

Welcome home class. We've come a long way. - RIP Prince

laurarichardson, I am soooo with you, but I'll go further...WHO has had this long of a memorial series? Not even Moses (Deut 34:8). 30 days was given to grieve over Moses. How on God's green/blue/purple earth are WE dealing with SO MANY MONTHS of grieving. I will never understand. And I'm totally aware of the diversity of the P community (Christian, Catholic, Protestant, Atheist). Come on...

I was hoping that someone representing Prince.org would reach out to Tyka and ask if there is anything at all that she wants or needs from us as a group on this fansite?

The very first thing that is done when someone passes is to reach out to the family to find out if they need anything but I don't know if that was ever done in this case.


Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit
and for that, I am eternally grateful....IDF
