Tragic R&B star Natina Reed was laid to rest in her native Georgia on Saturday (03Nov12), a week after she was fatally struck by a car on a roadway.

Friends and relatives of the rapper/singer, who died on 26 October (12), two days before her 32nd birthday, gathered at the Abundant Life Church in Lithonia to mourn the loss, with guests including Reed's former fiance, hip-hop veteran Kurupt, and their 10-year-old son Tren Brown.

Her former bandmates in 1990s group Blaque, Shamari Fears-Devoe and Brandi Williams, were also in attendance, as were rap stars Snoop Dogg, Big Boi and Daz Dillinger and the surviving members of TLC, Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins and Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas.

Taking to his blog on Sunday (04Nov12) to mark the sad occasion, Kurupt, who footed the bill for the memorial, wrote, "We luv u (sic) Natina... Missed but not forgottin (sic)".
