Just days ago, news surfaced that Paul Walker's family was looking for a place to bury their lost one and, today, it seems that they have not only chosen the location, but also the date. After the remains of his body were released yesterday by the LA County Department of Coroner-Medical Examiner, the family chose to cremate Paul.

Sources close to the family reveal that Paul Walker is going to be honored in a funeral service this weekend, during a procession that will take place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills. Members of Paul's family were seen there earlier this week, which led to speculation this could be his final resting place.

It looks like it's going to be a private affair, attended only by family members, with another service for family and friends being planned at a yet undisclosed location. This second event is said to be larger, but still by invitation only and off-limits to the media or the paparazzi.

It's not yet known, though it was speculated, if members of the cast of the “Fast & Furious” movies will be attending the family service, although Tyrese and Vin Diesel are said to have been helping Paul's parents with the funeral arrangements.

There has already been a public memorial service held over the weekend at the crash site by fans who gathered through the help of social media, in an event that blocked traffic in the region for several blocks.

A parade of racer cars was seen at the time, as people from many states congregated for what they said was respect and love for Paul Walker and his passion for cars.

The actor's tragic death in a car crash on November 30 came as a surprise to many and an outpour of support from all over the world flooded the media following the news.

Walker was busy at the time of his death with shooting the latest film in the “Fast & Furious” series, which has since been suspended indefinitely, although there are rumors that the movie will be going on without him.
