In a video recorded shortly before her death, longtime North Carolina State women's basketball coach Kay Yow thanks her supporters and recounts her religious faith.

Yow said: "It has changed my life."

Yow died last weekend after a two-decade fight against cancer. The video was played Friday at her funeral in suburban Raleigh, a service filled with hundreds of friends, fans and colleagues.

Colonial Baptist Church pastor Stephen Davey said Yow hand-picked almost every element of the service. Davey said Yow "wanted one final chance to challenge and impact all of our lives."

Yow will be buried Saturday in her hometown of Gibsonville.
