Gia Allemand, late “Bachelor” star, was remembered in a funeral service at Trinity Grace Church in Chelsea, New York City starting at 11 a.m. on Thursday.

Allemand, 29, committed suicide. Her boyfriend, NBA star Ryan Anderson, found her hanging in their home on August 12. Neighbor Mike Simpson joined Anderson when he heard Anderson’s grief. Simpson told People magazine Anderson said he had been gone less than an hour.

She did not die right away, but two days later.

At her funeral on Thursday, her father, Eugene Allemand stared at her casket, “clearly despondent,” as the New York Daily News described him.

Former Yankee pitcher Carl Pavano, an old flame of Allemand’s left a note, according to the News, that read: “My thoughts and prayers are with the Micheletti family.”
