Prince Is Cremated Before Private Ceremony
Prince has already been laid to rest before his closest friends and family in a private ceremony on Saturday at Paisley Park. According to The Root, the singer’s body was cremated in accordance to his wishes. They report Prince had “very precise” ideas of how he wanted to be laid to rest. The ceremony included family and his closest friends, including musicians Larry Graham and Sheila E.
A family member added “Throughout his life and following his Jehovah’s Witness faith, Prince made it clear to his family that if he ever were to be taken from us he wanted to die with dignity. “He had very precise ideas about how he wanted his death to be handled and that didn’t involve a huge funeral but a quiet service. The world has his music instead. He wanted to simply disappear with no fuss, no drama, no fanfare. It was just his style.”
