prince-creamated-1The remains of the legendary Prince Rogers Nelson were secretly cremated during an intimate and emotional ceremony Friday at a Minneapolis funeral home. What we’ve learned is that Prince, who died Thursday at 57, had very precise ideas of how he wanted to be laid to rest,  so shortly after his body was released from a 9 a.m. autopsy in Ramsey, Minn., family members had his body cremated at a funeral home about 2 p.m.

“He wanted it to be kept to the minimum of fuss. Prince was such figure you don’t need a funeral to remember him by,” a family friend said. “He wanted to simply disappear with no fuss, no drama, no fanfare. It was just his style.”

Family members have not commented on the final destination of the ashes, nor have they provided details on funeral or memorial service arrangements.

The heartbreaking farewell occurred at the nondescript First Memorial Waterston Chapel where his sister Tyka Nelson and another relative spent several quiet minutes with "Purple Rain" singer before he was cremated.
