Erica Garner was laid to rest in Harlem on Monday, January 8, but an alleged family altercation almost marred the tragic loss of the late Eric Garner‘s eldest daughter.

According to reports, a physical altercation erupted after Erica’s grandmother, Gwen Carr, Eric’s mother, arrived to pay her respects at First Corinthian Baptist Church.

Rev. Al Sharpton delivered the eulogy and reportedly spoke up while the commotion occurred saying,“Everyone has family divisions. We have to respect Erica. All of us have feuds, all of us have differences. I have some in my family I don’t speak to now. And I’m saved. This is about Erica.” He also spoke to BuzzFeed News about Erica’s tragic death.

The 27-year-old died December 30 after spending a week in a coma following a heart attack.
