The world continues to mourn the loss of Robin Gibb, and his family will get their chance to say farewell with a June 8 service in the U.K.

Rolling Stone reports that the service will be a private one for family and friends only, and the Gibb family has requested that no flowers be sent. For those wishing to contribute, they urge donations to the Rebecca House and the Wish Upon a Dream organizations.

The Bee Gees vocalist passed away May 20 at the age of 62 and his official cause of death was listed as kidney failure. The musician had struggled over the past year from cancer and the recovery from intestinal surgery, but his son stated that his father had gone into remission and the cancer was “too small to detect.”

There was a major outpouring of support after Gibb’s death earlier this month. While specific details have not been announced, the Daily Express reports that a public memorial service for Gibb is being planned for September at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
