Those who loved Paul Walker in life will gather this weekend to honor him in death.

A source tells E! News that the actor's remains will be cremated and a private service, to be attended only by family members, will take place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.

Walker's ashes will be interred at the cemetery.

Another private gathering is being held for family and friends at an as-yet undisclosed location in addition to the service, which is taking place this weekend. The larger gathering will still be invitation-only and no media or press will be allowed in.

Walker's remains were released to his family yesterday after the L.A. County Department of Coroner-Medical Examiner had completed its postmortem

On Sunday, thousands of fans packed the site where Walker and friend and business partner Roger Rodas were killed Nov. 30 in a single-car crash for a public memorial.

A parade of cars, many of them suped up Fast & Furious-style, paraded through the area. A number of mourners, some who made the pilgrimage from other states, told reporters at the scene that Walker and the Fast movies had inspired their own love of cars and racing and they didn't want to miss the chance to pay tribute to him.
