NBA star Ryan Anderson was a pillar of strength for the mother of Gia Allemand at the reality star's funeral today.
Held in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City at Trinity Grace Church, the funeral-goers were spotted leaving the ceremony holding yellow roses, with Anderson gently leading Allemand's mother Donna Micheletti out of the building.
According to the police report, on the day of her death Allemand and Anderson had argued over her suspicions he was cheating and the basketball player told her, "I don't love you anymore."
He found Allemand hanged with a vacuum cleaner cord in the stairwell of her home just hours later, with a note left on her dining room table reading, "Mom gets everything."
Anderson previously released a statement on his girlfriend's death, saying, "Gia was the most beautiful person I knew inside and out and she always smiled and made everyone else around her smile. She had such an amazing impact on my life and anyone that knew her was blessed."
"All I have left is to cherish those memories we made together and help perpetuate the many values, faith and love that we shared."
Bachelor co-star Jake Pavelka tweeted his grief over today's tough task, as did Trista Sutter.

Last week, a memorial was held in New Orleans, where Allemand was living when she passed, and a public viewing took place in New York Wednesday. Ali Fedotowsky tweeted that a memorial is in the works for West Coast friends.
