Most of them remain absolutely stunned that the 47-year old is no longer with us.

As previously reported, Ported died on November 15 after being found unresponsive in her Los Angeles home.

The mother of four had been feeling ill enough to call a doctor just the day before, but it's unknown at this time whether or not said illness played a role in her passing.

At this time, we cannot say for certain why Porter died.

On a celebrity front, Porter has been written about on websites such as ours because she dated Diddy off and on for 13 years, breaking up for good with the rapper in 2007.

The two stayed very close over the years, however, because they were the parents of three kids together.

The music mogul was in attendance at Porter's funeral this weekend, of course, as were the following well-known individuals:

- Kimora Lee Simmons.

- Tichina Arnold.

- NeNe Leakes.

- Kandi Burruss.

- Lil' Kim.

- Yolanda Adams.

- Mary J. Blige.

- Faith Evans.

Shortly before the sad ceremony got underway, Diddy Tweeted the following message about the love of his life:

"Today we lay to rest our ANGEL. Her spirit lives on with us FOREVER!!!

We thank you all for your prayers and support. You have no idea how much it means to us. We thank GOD for all of you. #KimPorter.

He had previously mourned Porter by leaving another post that read:

For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t.

I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much.

Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship.

We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love.

There was also a public viewing held at the Charles E. Huff International Funeral Home before the funeral commenced on Saturday, as well as a viewing on Friday.

Porter is survived by her and the Diddy's son Christian Casey Combs and twin daughters Jessie James Combs and D'lila Star Combs; along with the model's father Jake D. Porter, Jr. and her grandmother Lila Mae Star.

God broke the mold when he made Kim, there was truly no other woman like her," Porter's extended family, including Diddy's, said in a statement on Friday.

"Although her time here on earth was far too short, she lived a life full of purpose and meaning. She was a loving mother and devoted friend. She was the epitome of kindness and grace.

"There wasn't a person she met who's soul she did not touch. Kim was the type of woman who changed lives for the better.

"She will be forever remembered and missed by so many. As her family, we promise to honor her every day of our lives. We love you always."
