In a statement to E! news, Crystal said, “I haven’t been able to bring myself to write most people back to thank them for their condolences.” As CI readers know, Hefner died on Wednesday at the age of 91.
In her paper to the publication, she wrote that they laid him to rest on Saturday and he is in a “place he was always certain he wanted to spend eternity.”
According to Hefner’s widow, Hef “was an American hero” and a pioneer as well as a humble soul who “opened up his life to the world.” Hugh is survived by his large family consisting of Christie, David, Marston, and Cooper, who are 64, 62, 27, and 26 respectively.
As was mentioned in another CI article, the ceremony was relatively private with family members, close friends, and Playboy workers at the funeral. Hugh was laid right beside Marilyn Monroe’s burial spot; a location he paid $75,000 for back in 1992.
Some of the other famous people who are buried there include Natalie Wood, Walter Matthau, Roy Orbison, Carroll O’Connor, Truman Capote, as well as Florence Henderson.
In her statement, Crystal continued, “I join the world in mourning” and send thanks to everyone for their kind words in this challenging time.
E! News reported that just one day after Hugh died his family and friends gathered for dinner together where they shared a toast in his honor.
According to reports, his will and inheritance have not been made public, but analysists estimate that his net worth is somewhere between $43 million and $110 million, not including the Playboy Mansion that he sold just last year. In other news, Crystal deleted her Instagram account and made her Twitter private, possibly due to social media critics.
