As we continue to cope with the loss of Joan Rivers, we can't help but be happy with the details of her funeral in New York City.
Because it's pretty much exactly what she would have wanted.
Celebrities showed up in droves to pay tribute to the iconic comedian alongside with her daughter Melissa Rivers.
Among them were Andy Cohen, Whoopi Goldberg, Howard Stern, Hoda Kotb, Diane Sawyer, Ozzy Osbourne and his daughter Kelly Osbourne, Kathy Griffin, Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick, Giuliana Rancic, Alan Cumming, Barbara Walters, Hugh Jackman, Dr. Oz, Kathie Lee Gifford, Donald Trump, Joy Behar, Michael Kors, and of course Rosie O'Donnell.
Like we said, they allllllll came out to remember Joan.
During the service, there were various musical performances to pay tribute to Joan.
The funeral began
This sounds like a ceremony Joan Rivers would DEFINITELY have approved of!
The comedienne’s funeral service was held today in New York City at Temple Emanu-El, and by all accounts, it was perfection!
Our sources tell us that Hugh Jackman got up on stage and sang a tribute, and Howard Stern kept the crowd laughing, which we have to imagine is exactly what she would have wanted!
There were thousands of people outside, paying their respects, and inside, her celeb friends like Sarah Jessica Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, and many others were there. Her fellow Fashion Police critic Kelly Osbourne was in attendance and was very emotional about the sudden passing of her friend. Luckily, she had Rosie O'Donnell there to comfort her.
By all accounts, it was an "astoundingly beautiful ceremony!"
Joan, you are loved and deeply missed!

Barbara Walters retired from The View back in May, but the drama obviously didn't end there!
In these past couple of weeks, there have been HUGE changes to the panel of ladies when Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd announced their departure from the highly rated talk show.
Just recently we all learned of the two new co-hosts who tested with Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg — however, that process didn't go as smoothly as everyone expected.
A production source on the show revealed that during show testings, Rosie got into a heated debate with potential host S.E. Cupp over abortion which caused Whoopi to audibly express her frustration with Babs.
In a sea of show producers and potential replacement hosts, the show biz veteran reportedly said she has been:
Scarlett Johansson is the first human being to use more than ten percent… of her heart!
OK, that's not true, but she is getting married in August!
The Lucy star and her baby daddy Romain Dauriac revealed the proximity of their impending nuptials over the weekend at a dinner party hosted by Martha Stewart!
At the fancy fete, which also included guests Barbara Walters, Howard Stern, Katie Couric, and Rachel Zoe, ScarJo reportedly said the couple are saying their vows in just
Oh, Jenny, Jenny.
While Jenny McCarthy claims to have left The View on her own accord, a WEEKS old interview with New You magazine suggests otherwise.
The statements made in the interview seem to confirm media speculation that the controversial blonde was FIRED from the daytime talk show, a suggestion Jenny has adamantly denied since the news broke. The story Jenny has stuck to is that she decided to pursue new projects after BFF and co-star Sherri Shepherd fell victim to Barbara Walters' chopping block.
In the just released interview, however, Jenny predicted where she would be in twenty years:
Barbara Walters is ready to speak up about the decision to axe Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd from The View!
So was the heartbreaking news a sign that one of our favorite daytime talk shows coming to an end??!
Not so fast!
Barbara doesn't know who will join the only remaining host, Whoopi Goldberg, but she insists the show must go on!
After more than 50 years on television, Barbara Walters is finally ready to end her incredible career in broadcast journalism!
The legendary lady said farewell on The View this morning, surrounded by dozens of the women in TV news who have followed in her footsteps.
And just like that…Miz Walters was done!
At 84-years-old, she now has a long, happy retirement to look forward to!
But what is she looking forward to the MOST, now that she’s done with working?
Babs spilled that what excites her the most about her future is having nothing to do!
We’d say after working so hard for half a century, she deserves a chance to sit back and enjoy
the view her free time!
