Though family members are still finalizing burial plans, Simon Monjack will most likely be buried next to his late wife Brittany Murphy, PEOPLE confirms.

“That was definitely his wish,” says spokesman Roger Neal. “It’s safe to say that wish will be fulfilled.”

Monjack, who Sunday night five months after Murphy died of cardiac arrest, will be laid to rest in a private ceremony Thursday at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, where his wife was interred Dec. 24.

E! Online was first to report on Monjack s wish to be buried next to Murphy.
