A long-awaited public memorial for the two stars will be held on March 25 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park where the mother-daughter duo is buried, TMZ reports.

The send-off will feature a special song by James Blunt played over a photo montage of the pair - however, the singer will not be in attendance, Todd Fisher told TMZ.

Blunt had a close relationship with Fisher - she was even the godmother to his child with wife Sofia Wellesley.

Also as part of the tribute, Fisher's beloved pet Gary the Dog will be present for the memorial, according to the gossip site. Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd will also be in attendance, but will not address the crowd because it's too emotional, according to the gossip site.

Those who cannot make it to Beverly Hills can stream the event on either Fisher or Reynolds's websites.

A private ceremony was held to remember the stars in early January.

The "Star Wars" icon died on Dec. 27 after going into a cardiac arrest on an airplane.

Her mother suffered a stroke just one day later while planning her daughter's funeral arrangements.
