Her funeral was held at 11 a.m. at Trinity Grace Church in Chelsea.  Some 150 people attended the services.  Her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, and her mother were seen embracing and crying together at the church.  Gia's father, who was said to be heartbroken, was also in attendance.

 

Allemand's boyfriend found her last Monday at her New Orleans home after an apparent suicide attempt.

 

The beautiful and compassionate 29-year-old died two days later.  Her "Bachelor" friends posted today on Twitter about how hard it would be to say goodbye to Gia.
