Philip Seymour Hoffman will be laid to rest in a private funeral that will take place on Friday. A private wake will take place on Thursday, Feb. 6 night in New York City and only "the family and close friends" have been invited to attend. According to the Los Angeles Times, a memorial service is also in the works and is being planned for a later date.

"In lieu of flowers, the family said through the rep, people could donate to the DreamYard Project or the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, both of which Hoffman supported," the LA Times reported.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's private funeral is no surprise given the suddenness of his death. His family is likely still trying to process what has happened and privacy is one of the more important things that they all need to grieve and then they will start the healing process.

As previously reported, Hoffman's longtime girlfriend, Mimi O'Donnell, and his mother, Marilyn O'Connor, were seen entering Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home in New York on Tuesday, likely to finalize funeral plans.
