Comic Relief cohorts Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg were among those paying their last respects to Williams at San Francisco's Curran Theatre. A source told Us Weekly that Crystal, who also paid tribute to his friend at the Emmys , was in tears as he opened the service with an emotional speech. Williams' three children also spoke, as did Goldberg.
Guests — including Ben Stiller, Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, Joel McHale, Josh Groban, George Lucas, Nancy Pelosi, and Seth Green — were given ribbon wristbands reading "Enjoy the stillness of life" to wear. A band also performed at the ceremony, which lasted more than two hours.
We suppose this is the final farewell to Williams. Which feels just a little bit more heartbreaking.
