Matthew Perrys poignant final resting place pays tear-jerking tribute to Friends

Friends legend Matthew Perry has been laid to rest in a cemetery just a stone's throw away from where the iconic sitcom was filmed. The private memorial service took place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, which is also the final resting place for other famous faces like Star Wars' Carrie Fisher, screen legend Bette Davis, and INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence.

The majority of Friends was filmed at the nearby Warner Bros Studios, despite many exterior shots being set in New York. The show first aired in 1994 and ran for ten seasons, with the final episode in 2004 drawing in over 50 million viewers. In 2021, the cast reunited and Perry was moved to tears as they looked back on their time filming the show.

Matthew, aged 54, was found dead in his Los Angeles home last week. His assistant reported that he had played Pickleball for two hours before returning home and sending her out on an errand. Upon her return, she discovered his lifeless body in a hot tub and called 911, with initial theories suggesting he may have suffered a heart attack and drowned.

At the time, it was reported that no drugs were found at the scene and there was no sign of anything suspicious. It was later revealed that initial tests didn't show any fentanyl or meth in Matthew's system when he died, and we still don't know what caused his death.

His sudden passing has made lots of fans really sad, especially those who loved his role as Chandler Bing in Friends. His famous co-stars from the show, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston, all came to his funeral together.

Pictures showed men in black suits carrying a dark wooden coffin into the church while people comforted each other with hugs. We don't know if Perry chose this place for his funeral himself.

The service ended with a song called 'Don't Give Up' by Peter Gabriel. The lyrics could be seen as a touching comment on Perry's fight to beat his drug and alcohol addiction – which he talked about openly and wrote about in his book, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.
