Relatives and friends have said a final goodbye to the Queens man who was shoved onto subway tracks as a train rolled into the Times Square station. 

The funeral for Ki-Suck Han, 58, was held in Flushing on Thursday.

Naeem Davis, a homeless man, is charged in his murder. He told reporters after his arraignment that he was defending himself from Han who threatened him.

A longtime friend of Han's, Jong Lee, says the pastor told mourners at the Korean-language service that they are immigrants "here and in heaven."

Han's widow and daughter knelt before the open coffin for several minutes before taking their front row seats.

Then the family requested that the media wait outside. After the service, the coffin was taken to a crematory.

Davis has been arraigned on a second-degree murder charge.

He's accused of pushing Han to his death on Monday.

Video of the incident showed the suspect, believed to be Davis, yelling at the victim before the deadly push.

He yelled, "Leave me the **** alone" to the victim.  A short time later the man ended up on the tracks and was hit.

The incident took place at the 7th Ave. and 49th St. Station at about 12:30 p.m.

"People were in shock and scared," one witness said shortly after the incident.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
