Washington, Mar 9 (ANI): The mourners listened to Davy Jones' own songs at 'The Monkees' star's private funeral in Florida on Wednesday, it has been revealed.
According to newly released details about the service, only immediate family members were invited to the ceremony, while another memorial for public is planned in Jones' hometown of Manchester, England for next week.
The singer's relatives have thanked fans for their well-wishes and details about Wednesday's service at the Holy Cross Catholic Church in Indian town have now been revealed.
Several of Jones' own songs, including 'I'll Love You Forever' and 'Written in My Heart', were played, according to Reverend Frank O'Loughlin, who presided over the service.
"He wrote about a quiet, gentle, contented people. A people for whom life was bright, neighbours friends, daydream believers with an absolute absence of burden who took themselves lightly - lighter than air. Wasn't that what David conveyed to the world, a blissful lightness of being?" Contactmusic quoted O'Loughlin as saying in his sermon.
"I think your David captivated us because he was a new universal hero - not a typical Odysseus or Beowulf - but a very Christian hero, strength of character rather than strength of arms, conducting himself with humility and caring for others," he said.
Jones' widow, Jessica Pacheco, brought her husband's ashes to the church and her brother Joseph Pacheco, the singer's manager, gave a eulogy.
The 66-year-old 'Daydream Believer' hitmaker died after suffering a heart attack at his ranch in Florida last week. (ANI)
