Legendary rocker Gregg Allman was laid to rest in Macon, Georgia, on Saturday, and his famous ex, Cher, was among the mourners.
The small, private service was held at Snow's Memorial Chapel, Us Weekly reports. After the service, Allman was buried close to his brother, Allman Brothers Band co-founder Duane Allman, and their bandmate Berry Oakley at Rose Hill Cemetery.

She remembered Allman as a "KIND,LOVING man" in another tweet, noting, "The Sadness is immeasurable 4 all."
After the funeral, the Big House, home of the Allman Brothers Band Museum, hosted a private concert by members of Allman's solo band and Allman Brothers Band drummer Jaimoe Johanson in celebration of Allman's life. Only about 300 close friends attended the concert. Cher posted a picture from the event, writing, "Tears & Laughter."
