Chris Henry's Funeral Tentatively Set for Tuesday December 22
Chris Henry's funeral has been tentatively set for Tuesday December 22nd in Gretna Louisiana near New Orleans according to the Cincinnati Bengals website. It is thought that the Bengals may charter their own plane to fly down for Chris Henry's funeral on the Tuesday, but the public won't know more until all the details are finalized.
The team is still grieving over the loss of their teammate, who they say was on his way to getting his life together and his upcoming marriage to Loleini was going to be an even happier time for him. However, there have been reports today that Chris Henry was aggravated by the wedding costs and that the couple fought over the rising prices.
Domata Peko and the other Bengals praised Loleini for the order she brought to Henry's life however.
It’s a curveball to everybody,” said Peko, the defensive tackle and a captain. "I just pray for his mom and his family and for Loleini’s family, and hope everything works out. Only they know what really happened. All I know is we lost Chris and when you lose a good friend like that it’s going to hurt.”
Chad Ochocinco wore number 15 during Thursday's practice at Paul Brown Stadium, Chris Henry's number, and he has already spoken out on Twitter and YouTube about his departed friend.
The team plans to honor Henry on Sunday as well at their game against San Diego by wearing a helmet decal with Chris Henry's number and the coaches will wear pins.
More Chris Henry funeral details will be forthcoming when they are finalized.
