Davy Jones' family is taking comfort in fans' outpouring of support from around the world.
The late Monkees' singer's daughters—Talia Jones, Sarah McFadden, Jessica Cramer and Annabel Jones—told E! News in a statement that their family "has been greatly comforted by the support and love of everyone who has reached out to us."
"Knowing that so many people around the world were so affected by our Dad's life and music makes us feel connected to you all," the statement continued. "You are in our thoughts and hearts."
Jones, who passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 29 at age 66 after suffering a heart attack, is expected to be cremated and buried in Florida sometime this week. Bandmates Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork, and Mike Nesmith will not be attending the service so as to avoid a "media circus." They will, however, be attending the public memorials in the works for New York City and Manchester, England, where the TV heartthrob was born and grew up.
