Michael Duncan – The public had its chance to pay respects to the actor Michael Clarke Duncan yesterday at a public memorial.
The service was held at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks and Mortuaries in Hollywood Hills.
The memorial lasted about four hours, according to reports, and included remarks from friends, a slideshow and a screening of 1999′s “The Green Mile,” the movie that earned Duncan an Oscar nomination and made him a star.
There will be a private service today at the same location and is expected to include many Hollywood stars, in addition to Duncan’s fiance, reality TV star Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth.
“The only thing that really bothers me about him passing is that we didn’t fix,” Ambrose told Chicago’s WFLD-TV.
Duncan’s family, on the other hand, is convinced that if there really was a relationship to be mended between Ambrose and the “The Green Mile” actor, she would have at least tried to contact the family during the 53 days he was in the hospital.
