The one where they say a final goodbye to a friend.

According to People, Matthew Perry was laid to rest at a private funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon. And it appears his loved ones picked the place for a specific reason — it’s not too far from Warner Bros. Studios where the actor filmed the beloved show Friends. The 54-year-old’s close family and friends had been in attendance, including his former co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer.
