Some of Gia Allemand's closest friends and co-workers came together at the Mississippi River this weekend to pray for the reality star in an emotional farewell ceremony.
More then 50 people, wearing white ribbons, tossed white flowers into the water to "symbolize that our love and memory of [Gia] will continue to flow in our hearts."
Gia passed away on August 14, two days after she attempted suicide in her New Orleans home.
Allemand will be laid to rest on Thursday following a funeral ceremony at Trinity Grace Church in Chelsea, NY.
