Stan Lee‘s family bid farewell to the iconic comic book writer in a private funeral held four days after his death.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Lee’s POW! Entertainment said he was laid to rest “in accordance to his final wishes.”

“As we all continue to process our feelings of loss at the passing of a true legend, many are asking if there will be a memorial in Stan’s honor,” the company said in the statement.

“Stan was always adamant that he did not want a large public funeral, and as such his family has conducted a private closed ceremony in accordance with his final wishes. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with them,” the statement continued.
