The reason -- we're told Andre was Luna's godfather ... and the two were extremely close.

No word on when the scattering is taking place -- but according to sources, Luna's funeral Mass occurred yesterday  ... and a private service is in the works today for friends and family.

As TMZ first reported, Luna was found dead over a week ago in her Florida home ... where investigators discovered crushed oxycodone pills and a snorting straw.
