“It’s a Xmas I will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning,” Farwaz tweeted. “I will never stop missing you xx.”
Details of Michael’s funeral have not yet been released, but according to reports two memorials are being planned. The Sun adds that Michael will be buried in Highgate Cemetery, next to his mother Lesley who died in 1997.
“George’s love for his mother remained as strong as it had always been, and he always said he hoped he would be able to be with her again,” a source told The Sun .
“It’s what he would have wanted. George Michael’s family have a private plot where his mother is buried – and there is currently space within it for further burials.”
