Tom Petty's family and friends bid farewell to the rocker at a service in a California spiritual retreat, where his friend George Harrison's funeral took place 16 years ago.

The I Won't Back Down hitmaker, 66, lost his life at the UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica on October 2, a day after suffering a cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu, and on Monday, a memorial service was held to celebrate his life. Petty posted a photo of a white T-shirt with an illustrated Tom Petty on it along with the Latin phrase "Nil Desperandum", coming from Horace's Odes and roughly translating to "no need to despair".

She also shared a picture of herself and sister Adria Petty at the service, writing: "We care about each other and love our bad a*s father".
