|Death: ||Feb. 18, 2003|
More than 500 friends and family filled the Stone Temple Missionary Baptist Church on the West Side today to pay their last respects to E2 nightclub victim Bianca “Be-Be” Ferguson, 24. It took more than an hour for everyone to file past the girl’s white and gold coffin.
Kizzy Sherrod and Ferguson, both 24, grew up together at the Madison Terrace apartments on the West Side--a close-knit complex of longtime residents, Sherrod and Ferguson arrived at the club in a car with three other friends at 11:30 p.m. that Sunday, they had been waiting for this night all week, though Ferguson, an incurable homebody, had hesitated at the last minute about going.
Ferguson, known as BeBe, still talked lovingly of her stillborn baby girl, Nakyra, whose death 2 1/2 years before had devastated her. BeBe was the homebody of the bunch. If it weren't for her girlfriends, she probably would have spent those Sunday nights at home, cooking or doing somebody's hair; she dreamed of going to school to become a hairdresser.
