Anna Nicole's Son Buried After 39 Days

10/19/2006 3:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Over a month after Anna Nicole's son died of a drug overdose in the Bahamas, TMZ has confirmed that the body of Daniel Smith will finally be laid to rest today.

The private ceremony will be held in Nassau later this afternoon. According to published reports, roughly 25 people are scheduled to be in attendance.

Daniel will reportedly be buried in his favorite clothes which include a trucker cap, t-shirt and blue jeans.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Anna Nicole is set to wear a black dress and veil specially made for the occasion by famed designer and close friend Pol Atteu. Atteu also made Anna's wedding gown for her impromptu commitment ceremony to Howard K. Stern last month.

Daniel Smith died in the Bahamas on September 10 while visiting his mother who had just given birth to a baby girl.

The very first time I ever heard of Anna Nicole Smith was regarding a photo shoot she was doing on the streets of New York City. I think it was for her very first Guess jeans ads. I remember they said she had a really gorgeous, hunky chaffeur & people were fawning over him.

Anna proceeded to have a major hissy fit because she wasn't the center of attention & had the guy promptly fired.

I think that pretty much sums up the woman. If she isn't the center of attention everyone else can just disappear.

I am really sorry for Ana Nicole and her grief. It is pretty sad . however, No-one who has suffering a child lost , could understand a mother pain and how she
feels about it. Neither , nobody can understand why some times people do weird thing as Anna Nicole case.
Many people are judging Anna for the crazy things that she has done lately, but nobody knows how deppress she is right now. In fact, Anna is out mind
because she can not accept what happpened to Daniel. There are
many emotions againts to each other, goods and bads.
To the commentatores, please try to be in Anna's shoes, maybe you could understand a little bit her behavior. I think she was a good mother and Daniel loves Anna with all his heart.
My most sinceres condolences to Anna. I wish, you can get soon the peace that you deserve. Do not forget that some people love you and the lord will help
you to overcome with those bad moments and he will heal your heart.

not only did this skank make her son live a life of never knowing his family & any normalcy. She lets him lie in a freezer for over a month!!!! And then all she can say is "I'M SORRY" why is she sorry? she only thinks of her own stanky ass!
Wonder which gave Daniel the Lethal mixture? her or the ambulance chaser?
REST IN PIECE DANIEL, YOUR FAMILY IN THE STATES LOVE & MISS YOU

What mother lets her child lay in a funeral homes refrigerator for over a month?
Oh, thats right we're talking about Anna Nicole, who is too busy having a fake wedding. She is nothing but a glorified drug user who supplied her own son with it. God, no wonder she's "hiding" in the Bahamas, she ought to be lynched.

i THINK NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE ANOTHER. HOW U JUDGE AND CONDEMN WILL COME BACK TO YOU. "WHAT WE SOW, WE WILL ALSO REAP". HOW DO YOU KNOW ANNA'S HEART, YOU DON'T, ONLY GOD DOES. YOU WITHOUT SIN, CAST THE FIRST STONE. AND JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK SHE IS TRASH, BACAUSE SHE LIVED IN A TRAILER AND RAISED POOR, I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU! THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU TRASH BECAUSE YOU ARE POOR OR LIVE IN TRAILERS. I MAYSELF PRAY FOR ANNA THAT GOD WILL HELP HER WITH ALL HER PROBLEMS, ONLY GOD KNOWS HOW SHE SUFFERS OVER THE MISTAKES AND LOSES IN HER LIFE. SHE IS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, MAYBE YOU DON'T LIKE HER, OR THE WAY SHE PORTRAYS HERSELF, SHE IS ONLY LOOKING FOR LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE AND PEOPLE SEARCH FOR THAT IN MANY WAYS. I JUST PRAY SHE FINDS THE REAL PEACE SHE NEEDS AND SHE WILL I KNOW RAISE THIS NEW BABY AND IT WILL GIVE HER SOMETHING TO KEEP HER MIND ON IN THE LOSS OF HER SON DANIEL. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ANNA. YOUR FRIEND, WSF, OKLA.

If you have never ever lost a child ... how in the world can you judge the way this woman is grieving? He died NEXT to her, in her hospital room.

She had just had surgery!!! A C-section *IS* surgery ... and she was in the floor doing chest compressions on her SON.

Not a single one of you know what this family was like behind closed doors, without the media. Yessss ... she's done some stupid things ... and a lot of publicity stunts. But this was an accident.

You people sitting there judging her and her emotional response to her child's death is not a damn bit better than anything she's done. Even people who make stupid mistakes in their life deserve someone who loves them. If Howard Stern loves this woman, and was a father figure to that young man ... who are you to decide if and when they should exchange vows and commit to being there for one another through good times and bad???

At an emotional time like that ... he probably felt like the only person in the world she could truly trust and count on for emotional support. YOU DON'T KNOW what their relationship behind closed doors is ... and for any one of you to sit there and judge this family during such a tragic time of grief is down right disgusting.

She has millions she made on her own (no, not respectably ... but she did earn it on her own) ... considering everything that mother has been through the last month, do you really think she would want to run to Sears and pick something up ... the media would have a field day with that too. Do you take funeral clothes on vacation with you? She's damned if she does, damned if she doesn't ... because no matter what she does or how she reacts, someone is going to find fault with it.

Bahamas isn't the best place to bury him ... but considering the situation ... even if you were a "media whore" as someone mentioned her being earlier ... would you want to be exposed to it 100 times over in the U.S. I can assure you ... as a mother who has lost a child ... whether it is 100 prying eyes, or 10,00,000 ... you don't want to deal with ANYONE at that time ... you are consumed with grief, and in a daze.

Who gave you the right to be so judgemental?

For the comment made about southern trailer trash, that is so uncalled for since I have seen more trailer trash in the other parts of the country. I am sure that the person who said that is trashier than Britney, Anna, and everyone in the south combined. As for Anna's dress, I am sure most people with money get special outfits made for all big occasions whether it be a wedding, awards show, or a funeral. Maybe she wanted to wear something appropriate and she has changed sizes a lot over the years and may not have had anything to suit the occasion. It is just like anyone else buying something to wear to a funeral as I have except it is announced who the designer is. She might not have even provided that info to the media.

My two cents    

Lori-
I don't think anyone is challenging that Anna loved her son. She did, but none the less, Anna is a obviously screwed up person and made extremely poor choices all the way down the line which affected Daniel. Her insane lifestyle was clearly a set up for Daniels death. Did she do it intentionally? No, but none the less, it happened and she has no one to blame but herself. She is incredibly SICK and she has nothing but "enabler" Howard Stern to thank for the downward spiral that she is in currently. I can deeply understand the horrible realization that must have come to her after Daniel died, but if Howard could get her to do a "commitment ceremony", he certainly could have convinced her to bury Daniel weeks ago.

The reason it took so long to bury him is because the investigation and as hard as it is to beleive Anna's mother is a cop nd refused to lay him to rest till she solved what happened.

In an interveiw she said in 14 hours none left or went to her room, Anna, her son and her new husband and the baby where the only ones in their and had not left for 14 hours...Annas own mother said she thinks he was murdered and was not going to give up till she found out what happened and she said if that met Anna going to jail then so be it.

Her mother is positive that HKS is a murderer. She was on 3 CNN shows talking about the inheritance and how HKS would change the phone numbers whenever ANS's family in TX would reach her. He completely isolated her. C'mon, I did a CA search of cases of HKS's......none listed. He's a lawyer, but he saw a cash cow (sorry Anna, but it's true) and he hung on for dear life. She's got an addictive personality, and she's got leeches like HKS and Kimmie hanging on for every penny telling her everything is OK. If her "people" and there seems to be only the two of them, wouldn't they have stopped her bizarre behavior before people started ripping down her reputation and her mothering skills and her personality? NO.....they are the "yes" twins, letting Anna think all is OK. I think she's probably been stoned for years now. Better to keep her a bit off balance, eh Kimmie and HKS? And for the record, her mother just wanted Anna to know that they would be there for her, but they can't get to her (because of the Yes Twins). And her grandmother raised Daniel for years, until ANS married the old guy. All she wanted was to see her grandson again. She missed him terribly. He was kept from the family also. Anyone see a trend?

#69 : laughing at you : An extremely good blogg. You're starting to sound a lot like me ... ha ha .............lol..............But really. You made a lot of good points. All of them true.

Post # 73 Patty : You are precisely correct. Anna surrounds herself with all the wrong people and they are the ones ADVISING HER WHAT TO DO. If it wasn't so tragic ..........it's almost be laughable. Mothering skills ? What mothering skills ? Again, I don't think this woman is all there. This last stunt she pulled only validates my prersumptions I had about her all along. She doesn't learn from her mistakes either. She just keeps making them over and over again. CLEAN HOUSE ANNA. Get a new lawyer, new friends and reconnect with your FAMILY. My goodness..........could it possibly get any worse ?
