Jennifer Aniston Friends Get-Together
A source told OK Magazine, “It was always their plan to get together just the five of them, so they could feel comfortable about saying whatever’s on their minds.”
“They’ll reminisce about some of their favorite times with Matt and share stories and laugh and cry,” they added of the longtime costars, this get-together will be a private way for them to mourn the loss of their dear friend. “The funeral was such a sad occasion, but it was mainly for Matt’s family, and they held back out of respect for them.”
Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer all attended Perry’s memorial service last month.
As for the special get-together, the source shared the event will take place at Aniston’s home. Aniston lives in Bel-Air, California.
“She’s planning a nice evening with good food, some wine and lots of candles and soft music. She’ll break out the photo albums and candid videos and maybe even have a slide show.”
