Along with tweets, Facebook posts and YouTube uploads, fans of the late rapper Heavy D can pay their respects in a much more intimate way, that is, if you're near New York.

A spokesperson for the Yannantuono Funeral Home confirms to E! News that a public memorial and visitation will take place for Dwight Myers on Thursday, Nov. 17, from noon to 9 p.m.

Where exactly, you ask?

The visitation will take place at Grace Baptist Church located at 52 South 5th Ave., in Mount Vernon, N.Y. The spokesperson, however, would not confirm the date of the private memorial/visitation and private burial.

Myers died of as-yet unknown causes, autopsy results will not be released for at least a month. However, Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter, who told E! News that the "Big Tyme" rapper had recently visited a doctor before his untimely death Tuesday, had possibly been taking some medicine and was sick.
