After thoughtful reassessment of the coronavirus and risks associated with having many attendees who are coursing through international hubs, ultimately to intersect with family, friends, and the general public, our family has made the concerned decision to postpone the memorial service for our mother, Ja'Net DuBois.
We understand this announcement will grieve many who wish to honor her and pay tribute to her body of work on the stage, in film, in television, and behind the scenes.
We would like especially to recognize any of you who made changes to your schedule to be with us. We do not want to put anyone at unnecessary risk and hope all will understand and agree with our decision.
