GLENWOOD, Ill. (AP) -Mourners packed a south suburban Chicago church on Saturday, some lining the walls to attend the funeral for the ex-girlfriend of New York Knicks player Eddy Curry and her daughter.

Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz told The Associated Press that Curry was in Illinois early Saturday for a private viewing and wouldn't be attending the funeral. He declined to offer further comment.
``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.''
h were shot to death.
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.
Curry is a former Chicago Bulls player.
