``Your well wishes and prayers are the reason I can stand up here now,'' Henry's mother, Yolan Henry, told mourners. ``Whoever did this and whatever did this, it's going to be taken care of by God.''

At the scene, authorities also found Henry and Curry's 3-year-old son. He was unharmed.
Chicago police spokesman Dan O'Brien says no one has been charged in the slayings.
