A, wearing a red skirt and Minnie Mouse shirt and sucking on a pink pacifier, toddled in the grass outside the cathedral.“I’m a dad and this is my baby, but it could have been me,” Sanders said.Jenny Wrenson wore a black T-shirt with a heart, on which she wrote, “Phil was my co-worker.”As a special education teaching assistant, she said she got to know Castile in the school lunchroom and was thankful for his calm demeanor and hard work.“I know Phil only from that setting. He was really, really, really good to me and the kids,” she said, crying, after following his casket to the cathedral. “I’m really here to deal with my grief.”Attendees in black suits and white gloves lowered Castile’s casket off the back of the carriage while family members went inside the cathedral through one door and the public around to another ahead of a two-hour visitation before the service.A line of people waiting to pass by Castile’s open casket stretched outside the church and down the front steps. Friends hugged and wept as they looked at Castile for a final time. A line of attendants, also in white, handed tissues to onlookers while an occasional wail echoed off the marble walls.‘Opened their eyes’Castile’s relatives wrote in an obituary pamphlet handed out by ushers that his death had meaning.“You made history, you opened their eyes,” wrote his sister, Allysza.“His death is not in vain,” wrote his aunt Shirley. “The message sent across the world was a catalyst that will bring about reformation, justice and peace. Something good is going to happen.”The pamphlet told of how he “loved playing video games, reading about his Egyptian heritage, and thinking in solitude.”After the congregation sang, “How Great Thou Art,” Castile’s body left the cathedral with a reverent crowd surrounding him, pallbearers raising their fists as they carried his casket down the stone steps.“Justice for Philando” one man yelled.“Love you Mr. Phil,” a woman called out.Castile’s casket was placed back on a horse-drawn carriage bound for a private burial. Before it departed, a black man and a white woman reached across the top of it together to rearrange a spray of red and white roses.Staff Writers Libor Jany, Hannah Covington, Mara Klecker, Paul Walsh and Abby Simons contributed to this report.Let's block ads! a href="https://github.com/fivefilters/block-ads/wiki/There-are-no-acceptable-...
