The rest of the "Friends" were there to accompany him to his final resting place… Matthew Perry's funeral was held in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon (US West Coast time, early morning Greek time) in a small ceremony.

Relatives and friends of Matthew Perry gathered at the cemetery, located about a kilometer from the Warner Bros. studios where episodes of "Friends" were filmed.

Many Hollywood stars have been buried in the same cemetery, such as Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, and Lucille Ball.

Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing for ten seasons (1994-2004) on Friends, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles at the age of 54, sending shockwaves through Hollywood and millions of fans worldwide.

TMZ and the New York Post's Page Six published long-distance photos of those attending the funeral.

All of Matthew Perry's "Friends" co-stars - Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer - were there, as emphasized by the TMZ report.

The Page Six article states that the actor's father, John Bennett Perry, and his stepfather, Keith Morrison, were also in attendance.

Details about the cause of the 54-year-old actor's death will be revealed in the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's report, which is expected after the completion of an autopsy and toxicology tests.

Matthew Perry passed away one year after the publication of his book "Friends, Lovers, and the Big, Awful Thing," in which he chronicled his years-long battle to overcome his addiction to prescription painkillers and alcohol.

Yesterday, the foundation that bears his name, The Matthew Perry Foundation, was established to honor his memory and help those struggling to overcome addiction.
