Jenni Rivera will finally be laid to rest this week, and new details are emerging on the star's funeral. “Jenni had very specific plans for how she wanted her funeral to go down. She wanted Vendela roses at the service, Bella Rosa roses to be buried with her, and she requested butterflies to be released at the end of the service. A public memorial will take place on Tuesday [Dec. 18] in Long Beach and a more private one on Wednesday [Dec. 19],” Jenni’s team told TMZ.

Stars reportedly set to be at the service include Gloria Estefan, Edward James Olmos and Snoop Dogg. Snoop and Rivera were reportedly set to work on a duet together.

Rivera's brothers landed at Long Beach Municipal Airport on Thursday night with Rivera’s remains after Mexican authorities confirmed she had been on the plane. The remains were later taken to All Souls Cemetery and Mortuary in Long Beach, reports the Los Angeles Times. Her brother Lupillo Rivera on tweeted on Friday, "Jenni mission accomplished, you're home."
