Vinnie Paul Abbott was laid to rest over the weekend, and fans had the opportunity to bid the drummer a final farewell at a memorial service that ended up being live streamed.

The over two-hour celebration was streamed on the Pantera Facebook page and can be viewed in its entirety below.  Notably at around the 01:11:00 mark is where Phil Anselmo appears via video and says, “Vinnie, I will always have love in my heart for you, man.  Rest in peace.”

The public memorial service was preceded by a private service for family and close friends.  According to Blabbermouth, a number of musicians were in attendance including Ace Frehley, David Draiman, Charlie Benante, Chad Kroeger, Paul Shortino and Chris Jericho.
