(This is Blaire, Ven's OOC friend)
There was a funeral, but it was a private one held on Ord Mantell, solely for close friends and family. It was Kris' (Ven's) way of saying goodbye to the writers she was closest to, along with giving Ven the goodbye she deserved.
A memorial would be good, to give a chance for those that weren't invited to the funeral to say goodbye, and make sure the merc is remembered.
Plus, it would be interesting for Val to show up. She is Ven's clone after all.
