Robin Roberts has put off her planned hospitalization for a bone marrow transplant until next week so that she could remain in Mississippi to attend the visitation and funeral for her mother Lucimarian Roberts.

The television co-host posted a note this morning on the Good Morning America website:

The family held a visitation Tuesday night that was attended by 700 people. Robin tweeted:

A private funeral is scheduled for Wednesday, with burial at the Biloxi National Cemetery next to her husband, Col. Lawrence Roberts, who died in 2004.
