Ahead of the funeral, Diddy tweeted a handsome photo of Kim, captioning it: 'Today we lay to rest our ANGEL. "I have never known a life without Kim porter from kindergarten through all of our life long experiences in high school, having matching bmws or her being the biggest believer in me making it as a producer and us getting out of Columbus to be somebody".

We're told Yolanda Adams performed "Just a Prayer Away", and Faith Evans sang "His Eye is On the Sparrow". I miss you so much. We thank GOD for all of you.

While the cause of her death remains unknown following the completion of an autopsy, Porter was reportedly battling pneumonia when authorities responded to call for cardiac arrest at her LA home. She was a loving mother and devoted friend. She was the epitome of kindness and grace. "Kim was the type of woman who changed lives for the better", the Porter, Goodwin and Combs families say in a statement Friday to The Associated Press. She was remembered at the Cascades Hills Church in Columbus. "It was a blessing to be able to have that special bond with all my grandchildren and experience their day to day life and activities.l Kim was a great mom and her spirit continues to radiate through her children".

Kim Porter's final resting place is Evergreen Memorial Park, next to her mother, Sarah, who died in 2014.
