Hundreds of people lined up outside a funeral home in Las Vegas on Friday afternoon to pay their final respects to the late, great B.B. King.
ABC News reports that the crowd for the 4 hour public viewing grew to over 1,000 people. Ushers handed out cards printed with King’s date of birth, death and the lyrics to his song “The Thrill Is Gone.”
One of King’s daughters, Rita Washington, greeted many of the guests.
“Dad is just loving this,” she told the Associated Press. “This is part of his homecoming.”
