Taylor is being honored in a private funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park (in Glendale, Calif.) according to People. The same place that longtime friend, Michael Jackson, is buried.

According to a source, five stretch limousines arrived at the mausoleum around 2 PM PT on Thursday (Mar. 24). The service is said to be held exclusively for family — including her four children, ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Taylor passed away early Wednesday morning from congestive heart failure at age 79. A public memorial for the Hollywood icon is expected to take place at a later date.
