wow. this i can't understand. Those babies will be the ones who suffers and I am all for a forgiving heart but there is no way that this is "helping" those children. God bless. It's a shame the victim's own father had no say so in this.

I can understand that the families were close, but the fact remains that this man killed the mother of his children. I don't think that my family would be so understanding if it had been me in Treeshonda's place. Let this be a warning for those women who think that it's love speaking when you are threaten. Don't take threats or life for granted

I cant understand for the life of me why the family would even encourge the kids to visit their fathers grave. Now they will be force to see his grave everytime they visit their mom. This is a shame those poor kids and her father.

Even though she is gone this is very disrespectful to the daughter. I would not want to buried next to my murderer even if we were married for 30 years. Shame on this girl's mother. What do the kids think about this?

I ran this scenario by everyone at work and the general consensus is that there is no way on earth that would happen if that was our daughter.

Mr. Smith you and your family are in my prayers. I sincerely hope you can find some comfort in the midst of this tragedy.

i understand the father's concern, but no one knows what really happened besides anthony and treeshonda.these children remember them as a couple,and that is how they should always remeber them. two funerals would have been too much for the kids to bare.

today she would have graduated from Shaw University. I was deeply saddened as I watched her mother accept her degree.

I know that God is truly going to stand by the children side.He has already punished his self when
he killed her and hisself because self murder he's
gone to Hell instantly.I feel as though he should
have been buried somewhere else.He wasn't caring
about the children having a Mother to raise them.
I see No good thats doing buried together useless
to the children.I know GOD will surrender his all
to the precious children you are truly in GEO prayers.

My mother always taught me not to judge others especially when you havent walked in their shoes and I keep that in mind as I post this comment! This beautiful young mom deserved so much more that what life dealt her and she attempted to get out of her situation! I am saddended that her maternal family felt this was a proper homegoing however I wont judge them! I pray that her children receive the help they will need in the years to come! I only hope holding this double funeral together does not do more harm than good to these children!How will they perceive what thier father did if the moms family decides to behave as if its acceptable! May god ease the pain of both families and I say a special prayer for her dad! Your little girl knows you only wanted the best for her and even in death tried to protect her!

If he was thinking about the kids, He would not have killed their mother!! The only funeral I would have allowed those children to attend was their mother's. And what kind of mother would want her daughters murdered buried anywhere near her. THIS IS STUPID!!!!
