So sad! We can't even fathom the emotions that Paul Walker's family is feeling right now, nor how they'll keep it all together at his funeral.

According to sources, the upcoming funeral will be kept relatively small in its guest list, and will be invite only in consideration of Paul's daughter Meadow, who is understandably distraught during this tough time.

However, the cast and crew of the Fast and the Furious franchise will reportedly be in attendance, as Paul was so close with so many of them.

Indeed, the family knows that being there to say goodbye to Paul would mean a lot to them. That's so kind and considerate of them!

While we're not sure the date of the service yet, allegedly after the funeral there will be a larger memorial, which was also be invite only.

It will be so tough for many to say their final farewell to Paul. Our heart breaks for everyone who was close with him!

After the increasingly tragic circumstances surrounding the suicide of Jacintha Saldanha - the nurse who took her own life after being the victim of a prank call regarding Kate Middleton's stay at the hospital at which she was employed - have continued to be uncovered, the woman's body has now arrived in India.

According to reports, the 46-year-old's remains are now in Mangalore in Karnataka, where she was raised, and Saldanha's husband Benedict Barboza and their daughter Lisha, 14, and son Junal, 16, will travel there to attend her funeral service, which is said be expecting as many as 5,000 attendees at Our Lady of Health Church in the town of Shirva.

Furthermore, the hospital in Mangalore at which she studied nursing is reportedly planning to create a memorial award in her honor.

We're glad to hear that her memory will live on through something so positive.

However, our heart, thoughts, and prayers still go out to this woman's husband, children, and loved ones at they still struggle to make sense of this horrific tragedy and come to terms with what must be irreversible grief.

May she R.I.P.

Joe Paterno memorial service

Legendary and, as of late, controversial college football coach Joe Paterno passed away on Sunday after complications from lung cancer.

His family will say goodbye one last time during a private funeral on Wednesday, then hold a public memorial service at the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State University's campus the next day.

Details are still being worked out, but PSU is allowing two tickets per person for the memorial.

We're sure the building will be packed to the walls for the event because Paterno was truly loved by everyone in the Penn State community.

One group who won't be there, however, is the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priest, who issued a statement reading:
