TMZ reports that a funeral service for former WWE star Gertrude "Luna" Vachon was held Friday at the North Carolina farm owned by Andre the Giant's estate. A private service was held Saturday.
The ashes of Vachon will be scattered at the same place. The reason — it is said that Andre was her godfather. She said in a 2008 interview that Andre tried to dissuade her from entering the wrestling industry. The two were said to have been very close.
Vachon was found dead in her Florida home on August 27, where authorities discovered crushed oxycodone pills and a snorting straw. An official cause of death has not been released.
