More Than 800 People Attended Josh Link’s Funeral


According to the Times:

    • In deep mourning, the family has taken comfort in realizing, through the memorials and candlelight vigils, just how many people his work reached. “He was a notable person,” said his father, Ronald Link, something his son’s modesty had never betrayed.

More than 800 people went to the funeral on Long Island: lifelong friends and family friends and bouncers and disc jockeys and club owners and people with tattoos and piercings and five-inch heels. “It was the hippest funeral,” his mother said, “that I have ever been to.”
