Simon Monjack has been buried next to late wife Brittany Murphy — but not before a final musical performance together.

About 75 friends and family members were in attendance as Monjack, who died Sunday, was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles on Thursday.

It was a private orthodox Jewish service and took place at the same memorial church where Murphy was eulogized in December after her sudden death.
