Stephen Hawking Had One Last Gift To Give After His Funeral

By Mark Pygas

The funeral of famed scientist Stephen Hawking took place in Cambridge, England, on Saturday, with around 500 guests attending the ceremony at Cambridge University's Great St. Mary's Church, and hundreds more waiting outside. 

Later this year, Hawking's ashes will be placed in London's Westminster Abbey, alongside those of Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. 

But the funeral wasn't the last people saw of Hawking. On Monday, FoodCycle, a charity feeding the city's hungry, received a donation from the Hawking family to fund an Easter dinner for 50 guests at Wesley Methodist Church.
