Barry White To Have Public Memorial

Late soul legend BARRY WHITE will have a public memorial service held in early August (03), according to his family.

The event will be both a celebration of his life and feature a dedication of a public recreation centre in Los Angeles to the JUST THE WAY YOU ARE star.

A statement from his family reads, "We wish to extend our thanks to everyone who has offered expressions of sympathy and love for our father, husband and brother.

"Your kind words of support and encouragement mean more than we can say and have helped to sustain the family during this difficult time."

The SOUTH PARK RECREATION CENTER will be renamed in the singer's name, as it is in an area of LA the WALRUS OF LOVE grew up in.

A private memorial service is to be held next Tuesday (15JUL03) for White, who died of kidney failure last Friday (04JUL03).
