It was working and now has totally crashed, apparently. I'm thinking that the load has totally overwhelmed the servers.

No, initially I was able to see the church and a lady standing there but it never moved. Now I get a time-out. I was able to see comments and someone from SXM said that it's streaming for those in SXM.

I don't know whether they could limit it from only SXM ip's accessing it or not. Initially I did see the church and saw a brief section at the police station when the hearse arrived, but nothing since then.

Timing out here on the island as well. Possibly people who were in early, like I was, did not disconnect so they are still connected but I keep getting timed out & I am going through a SXM server.

I watched some of it this afternoon. Thank goodness, I didn't see most of the politician stuff. The singing and the local minister and the family stuff were wonderful..

We got to see some of it but it went out about 1 p.m. Looked like a beautiful service. I wonder of any of it was recorded and can be seen on the internet?

I don't know, that's a good question. One would think, since it was on live, or most of it was, apparently, there should be a recorded video of it somewhere.

Here is a link to a video I found of the procession on an SXM facebook page. Not sure but you may need Facebook to view it.

I hope someone has captured more of the procession than what went down Front Street. The production company that streamed it live? If so, I cannot find anything. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/cry.gif" alt="" />

On YouTube there are still shots set to a James Taylor song.

Do they do that for all funerals on the island? Because for all my relatives that passed (all French side), we did that procession from the church to the burial ground.

What I saw of the procession yesterday was beautiful...and heartbreaking.

There is an article about the funeral, with many pictures, in The Herald.

If you read this article and are touched, please consider donating to the GoFundMe created in Officer Benji's name:
