Family members, friends, politicians, and religious leaders gathered to eulogize Muhammad Ali at his memorial service. Ali, who died last week at the age of 74, was laid to rest at Cave Hill Cemetery following a two-hour funeral procession through his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
The many guests who gave eulogies in honor of the late former boxer included Lonnie Ali, Ali’s widow, former President Bill Clinton, and comedian and actor Billy Crystal. The speakers were chosen by Ali himself.
