    I believe the funeral would have been better served with a more humble pastor to do the eulogy. Pastor Marvin Winans was very self-serving during the eulogy. He was more focused on himself and who was in the room. He did not mention anything about Whitney in the sermon. He continued to check his watch before he spoke because he got tired of listening to everyone else. He wanted his time to shine!!! He had an opportunity to represent Jesus around the world but instead he chose to glorify himself! TD Jakes would have been more respectful and not as self-serving as Marvin Winan. He needs to be delivered from HIMSELF!
