Close friends and family attended the Queens Memorial service where her body was laid in an open casket ceremony. On Saturday, the New Orleans service saw friends and colleagues pray for the late reality star and throw white flowers into the Mississippi river. The invitation to the New Orleans service read "please join us in prayer as we toss white flowers into the river to symbolize that our love and memory of her will continue to flow in our hearts." Around fifty friends attended the event.
Those attending the funeral service tomorrow will be a number of The Bachelor contestants who competed alongside Allemand.
