The traditional Hmong funeral for the Hmong leader will begin at the Fresno Convention Center on Friday February 4th.

Assemblyman Henry T. Perea has been helping out. "I expect a huge turnout. Our local office has been engaged to help plan as much they need. It is an honor to be a part of the services"

The ceremony is expected to last for four days and be attended by as many as 40,000 mourners a day.

Wow, what a phenomenal event to be able to attend. If I wasn't halfway across the country, I'd try to make it. Thanks for posting the information!
