Under gray skies on an unusually cold and rainy May day in Southern California, Simon Monjack was buried this afternoon as he wished, next to his wife, actress Brittany Murphy, at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
RadarOnline.com reports that approximately 75 family and friends bid farewell to Simon, including his mother-in-law, Sharon Murphy, after a private Orthodox Jewish funeral held at 3pm today in the cemetery's Chapel of the Hills, the same church where Brittany's funeral was held five months ago on Christmas Eve.
After the service, his grave reflected the Jewish burial mound tradition.

TMZ published today audio of the 911 call Sharon placed when she discovered Simon unconscious and not breathing in the master bedroom of the home she continued to share with her son-in-law after her daughter's death. Sadly reminiscent of the call she placed when she found Brittany in the master bedroom bathroom five months ago.
The 911 operator's attitude and treatment of Sharon is taken to task in the comments section as being too abrassive and downright rude.
Assistant Chief LA County Coroner Ed Winter was briefly interviewed on-scene the night of Simon's death, video courtesy Hollywood.tv:
