Memphis rapper Young Dolph's memorial services were held Tuesday in a private funeral ceremony.

N.J. Ford and Sons Funeral Home provided the 36-year-old's funeral service and shared some moments of the memorial in a Facebook post.

"We’re truly honored to be chosen to provide the professional services to the Thornton and P. R. E. family and we pray that our services exceeded each of your expectations," the funeral home's post read. "Our prayers are continuously extended to each of you."
