Friday May 28, 2010

It was a sad day for friends and family of Brittany Murphy's late husband on Thursday as they gathered to say their final farewells.

The London-born scriptwriter, who died on Sunday, was laid to rest in LA at a private orthodox Jewish service attended by about 75 people.

He was buried next to his late wife at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

Speaking at the service were both Brittany's mum Sharon and Simon's mother Linda. A photograph of the late couple lay by Simon’s casket at the ceremony, which closed with a recording of Brittany singing Smile with Simon on the piano.

Police are still investigating Simon's death. He was known to have had heart problems in the past.
