Now it’s time to say goodbye…
Though we learned on Wednesday that there was no memorial planned for David Bowie, now, his wife and close friends are indeed planning a small get-together to honor the icon:
“The family of David Bowie is currently making arrangements for a private ceremony celebrating the memory of their beloved husband, father and friend,” reads a statement titled “Thank You” posted to the late rocker’s official website on Thursday. “They ask once again that their privacy be respected at this most sensitive of times.
“The family adds: “We are overwhelmed by and grateful for the love and support shown throughout the world. However, it is important to note that while the concerts and tributes planned for the coming weeks are all welcome, none are official memorials organized or endorsed by the family. Just as each and every one of us found something unique in David’s music, we welcome everyone’s celebration of his life as they see fit.”
