Friends And Family Say Goodbye At Gia Allemand’s Funeral
Allemand shocked the world when she attempted to take her own life Aug. 12 and was taken off life support two days later at a New Orleans hospital.
Among the mourners who gathered to remember her at New York City’s Trinity Grace Church included her mother Donna Micheletti, some of Anderson’s New Orleans Pelicans teammates, and Bachelor alums Jaclyn Swartz, Rachel Truehart, Graham Bunn, Jenna Burke, Craig Robinson, Tyler Vermette, Ashleigh Hunt, Krissily Kennedy, Gwen Goia, Ames Brown and Jackie Gordon, according to Us Weekly.
Friend Gordon tweeted before the funeral surrounded by her Bachelor co-stars:
Happy to be surrounded by people who truly cared for Gia. @cfiora19 @JasonResminiESQ @JackieGordon @KathrynSherlock @CRAIGR1 @jakepavelka1Kathryn Sherlock also posted her love for her friend she starred with on season 14 of the hit show.
Robinson expressed his sorrow to all Allemand's fans just hours ago.
While friends addressed the crowd to fondly remember the 29-year-old, Anderson and Allemand's mother, Micheletti, held each other tight during the emotional service.
"The family of Gia Allemand wishes to express their sincerest gratitude to all those, near and far, who have extended words of encouragement and support during this time of incredible loss,” program from the service read.
