An emotional funeral was held for Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly, who died last this week due to a suspected drug overdose.
A teary Kris Kross bandmate Chris Smith told 300 mourners, “It’s been a struggle for me every day, but there was a peace that came over me this morning because I know he’s in heaven.”
“We had so many memories. He was a true friend,” Smith said. “So I just wanted to say I love you, man, and I’ll miss you.” Kelly’s mother, Donna Kelly Pratte, begged the deacons not to shut the lid on her son’s casket. “Please don’t close it,” she wailed. “Please don’t close it on my baby.”
