The “Friends” star, Matthew Perry, was laid to rest in a small, low-key service on Friday.

Guests included his co-stars, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow.

The actor’s parents, Suzanne Morrison, his father, John Bennett Perry, and his stepfather, “Dateline” correspondent Keith Morrison, were among the small gathering of twenty mourners. Family members carried Perry’s coffin into the service.

The actor was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, a cemetery located near the Hollywood Hills where many celebrities have been buried. The plot may have been chosen because it’s near the Warner Bros lot where the hit show “Friends” was filmed.

The actor’s body was released to loved ones on Sunday after an autopsy was conducted. The official cause of death has not been determined as officials await results from a toxicology report.

The Los Angeles County medical examiner updated its online record for actor Matthew Perry on Sunday afternoon. The report listed his cause of death as “deferred.”

Per LA coroner guidelines: “In cases where the cause of death cannot be determined at the time of autopsy, a deferred certificate will be issued until additional studies have been completed.”

The autopsy on Matthew Perry has been conducted, but the coroner is waiting on results from a toxicology report to determine if any foreign substances, including drugs, contributed to the actor’s death.

The Los Angeles police department is investigating the actor’s death, but sources have told TMZ and CNN that no foul play is suspected.

Perry’s family released a statement: “heartbroken by the tragic loss of our beloved son and brother.”

“Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend,” the statement said. “You all meant so much to him, and we appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love.”

Mr. Perry detailed his struggles with addiction in a 2022 memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.” In the book, he spoke of his Vicodin addiction, taking up to 55 pills a day during “Friends” third season. He also mentioned abusing Xanax, OxyContin, Dilaudid, Methadone, and Cocaine.

“I think you actually have to have all of your dreams come true to realize they are the wrong dreams.” – Matthew Perry
