Celebrity mourners pay their respects at Joan Rivers' funeral

Celebrities, friends and loved ones came out in force to celebrate the life of comedic legend Joan Rivers at her funeral in New York over the weekend.

Joan Rivers had always hoped that her funeral would be a grandiose affair, and her wish was granted as her loved ones came together to remember the life of the inimitable star.
Hugh Jackman helped make it a Broadway-style affair by singing Peter Allen's 'Quiet Please, There's a Lady on Stage', which garnered a standing ovation from the assembled mourners.
Her daughter Melissa Rivers read out a heartfelt letter to her mother and all tributes and readings reportedly combined a sense of loss with the sense of humour that Joan would have wanted people to show.
