There was not a dry eye in the room as celebrities, family and friends gathered at 12PM on December 6 to celebrate the life of Abloh in a large room which was adorned with several extravagant floral displays.

The tearful day included a moving performance by a tearful Lauryn Hill, and eulogies from many including his wife Shannon Abloh and Tyler The Creator who also broke down.  

Stories about the prolific designer's life were shared and Pastor Don C spoke as well to a room of hundreds.
