The New York Times Obituary:

Beverly Sills was laid to rest yesterday (July 4th) with only a small service and burial. We are all praying for her family and those who knew her best. We all know that she's singing beautifully in the opera house in the sky.

Beverly Sills was one in a million. She was a fantastic opera singer and a fantastic person as well. I loved her and know many, many other people did also. She will be sorely missed. My sympathies to her family and friends.
