Tom Petty Laid to Rest in Private Funeral, Daughter AnnaKim Shares Photos From the Service
By Jackie Willis
Tom Petty's family paid their respects to the rocker in an intimate service on Monday.
Petty's daughter, AnnaKim Violette Petty, posted several photos from the funeral, which appeared to be held at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine -- a temple, shrine and meditation garden -- in Pacific Palisades, California. This is also where Beatles band member George Harrison’s funeral took place in 2001.
The funeral also included T-shirts, according to Petty's daughter. "Who gets a ringer t-shirt at a funeral," she captioned a photo of a shirt that had Petty playing the guitar with the Latin phrase "nil desperandum," which in English means "do not despair; never despair."
Petty died on Oct. 2 of cardiac arrest, and on that day, his daughter shared musical memories of her beloved father. "I love you my angel," she captioned a throwback image of Petty, who was 66 at the time of his death.
