Johnson Family Speaks Out On Casey's Death

The family of socialite CASEY JOHNSON has urged wellwishers to donate to charity in her memory, following her sudden death on Monday (04Jan10).
The Johnson & Johnson heiress was discovered lifeless at her home in Los Angeles after reportedly lying dead for days.
Officials have completed an autopsy on the 30 year old's body and determined there were no signs of trauma, although the cause of death is deferred pending toxicology tests.
Johnson's funeral will take place later this week (ends10Jan10) - but her loved ones admit they are still reeling from the tragedy.
A spokesperson for the family tells ETOnline.com, "The Johnson family wishes to thank everyone who has expressed condolences and support during this trying time. Your thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated.
"The family has arranged for Casey to be flown back East to her final resting place. There will be a private funeral service later this week for the immediate family. The family asks for a measure of privacy over the next several days as they mourn their loss. No other information will be released at this time.
"For the many who have asked what they can do to honor Casey's memory, we ask simply that you consider making a donation to the Casey Johnson Memorial at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International. Casey struggled throughout her life fighting this disease, and she would want to see all of us continue that fight on her behalf."
