LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The outpouring of support in Louisville and around the world is giving Muhammad Ali's family strength.

Asaad Ali stopped by his father's museum yesterday. The former U of L baseball player was overcome with emotion as he watched well-wishers pay their respects.

"Just seeing everybody stopped on the streets on the highway, you know, crying and everything -- it's powerful," said Asaad Ali.

But he says his father wouldn't want him to be sad.

"Tears of joy...be happy celebrate his life, because that's what he would want," he said. "That's what we're trying to do right now as a family is celebrate him ."

Ali didn't feel comfortable talking about his father's final moments, except to say he was a fighter until the very end.
