First picture of OJ’s kids SYDNEY & JUSTIN in YEARS!

Lou Brown, father of Nicole Brown Simpson, was granted his final wish when he was laid to rest July 12 next to his beloved daughter, who was stolen from him 20 years ago by O.J. Simpson. Lou, 90, lost his seven-year battle with Alzheimer’s disease July 3, and his heartbroken family gathered for a touching grave-side service – captured in exclusive National ENQUIRER photos.

The moving event marked the first time that O.J. and Nicole’s daughter Sydney had been in the spotlight in four years, and son Justin in ten. “Since the day Nicole was murdered Lou told his family he wanted to be buried next to his daughter,” said a family insider. “Lou is actually buried right on top of Nicole. He would be so happy to know that they will be together throughout eternity!”

The memorial service at Ascension Cemetery in Lake Forest, Calif., included a military send-off for the World War II pilot, with taps played by armed forces members.

“Before the service, family members placed their favorite momentos of Lou in the crematory box,” said the insider.

Among the 20 mourners attending were Lou’s wife Juditha, daughters Denise, Dominique and Tanya, along with Justin and Sydney Simpson.

Lou’s oldest daughter, Denise Brown, 56, told The ENQUIRER that when her dad passed away “he was surrounded by his wife and his daughters.”

Lou would have been pleased with happier family news – Sydney, 28, a Boston University graduate, has fallen for an old college pal of her brother Justin – 25-year-old Robert Blackmon.

Confided a close source: “I think Sydney has met the one!”
