Philando Castile Laid to Rest
Philando Castile was laid to rest today, one week after he was shot and killed by a police officer in Minnesota. It was the reception afterwards that was a touching tribute to the man.
Castile worked in the cafeteria at JJ Hill Montessori School in St. Paul and because he fed so many children there, the school wanted to feed others on this day. An open meal was served and catered by several different groups.
The luncheon was a celebration of Castile’s life and his uncle called it a “backyard bbq” for his nephew.
A white casket with Castile’s body rode past the school in a horse drawn carriage.
