“The dark of the sun we will stand together,” Petty captioned a photo of a black and white image of her late father that was on display. In addition, she shared a picture of she and her sister, Adria Petty, at the service, writing: “We care about each other and love our bad ass father.”

Petty posted a photo of the Golden Lotus Archway as well, which frames the Mahatma Gandhi World Peace Memorial. The outdoor shrine houses a 1,000-year-old Chinese stone sarcophagus that holds a portion of the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi.
