Naya Rivera's Funeral

Glee star Naya Rivera's family and friends were able to lay their beautiful girl to rest in a private ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles on July 24th. The gorgeous and uber-talented actress took her 4-year-old son on a boat ride and disappeared into the water before saving her son's life ensuring he was safe on the boat.

The Ventura County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that her cause of death was drowning by accident. The death certificate says "The body has been x-rayed and a full autopsy has been performed. The autopsy findings are consistent with a drowning and the condition of the body is consistent with the time she was submerged." They also found that "no traumatic injuries or disease processes were identified," and that no drugs or alcohol were found in her system.

The Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan have set up a college fund for her son Josey. It is clear from all of the photos and videos released by her loved ones that she adored that boy more than anything. Her ex-husband and father of her son Ryan Dorsey and her sister have also made statements for the first time since she went missing expressing their pain and gratefulness at having had the chance to know and love her. 

Rest in peace, Naya.
