Anna to be Buried in the Bahamas

2/28/2007 6:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A Florida appeals court ruled today and uphold the previous decision ofJudge Larry Seidlin giving custody of the body of Anna Nicole Smith to baby Dannielynn's court-appointed advocate, Richard Milstein. This paves the way for Smith to be buried in the Bahamas next to her son, Daniel.

Justices Barry Stone, Mark Polen and George Shahood of the Fourth District Court of Appeals heard arguments on Wednesday from lawyers representing Virgie Arthur, Howard K. Stern and Dannielynn Smith. Arthur, Smith's mom, wanted the body to be buried in Texas, while the others wanted the body to be buried in the Bahamas.

13 Patti: What a silly argument lol!! A passport costs about $100 and Danielynn stands to inherit millions and millions of dollars. Do you really think an airline ticket to Nassau will be a problem to her...get real! The truth whether you like it or not is that Danielynn in all probability will not visit her mother frequently at all as she will have absolutely no memory of her and the family that raise her will be the only family she knows.

The appeals court "upheld," not "uphold" the lower court's order.

Deena,
The argument was that Virgie would have to pay, not Dannielynn. Do you really think Virgie would possibly think of anyone other than herself?

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now Anna can FINALLY be laid to rest, the way ANYONE deserves to be.

Regardless of HOW she lived her life, it is indisputable that she LOVED her son. Now she can rest next to him, the way she should.

(You know the Bahamas is cheering, because of the whole tourist thing.)

And face it, not everyone visits their loved ones in cemetaries on a regular basis anyway. I wonder how often Virgie visits HER mother?

Sorry for being snarky.

Yea I feel pity for her that she wasnt woman enough to be a REAL mother to Anna Nicole all these years. She should be ashamed of herself dragging it out so long. She wanted revenge on Anna so she let her decompose in a cold morgue. Yea I understand how you feel bad for the mother((((((SARCASIM)))).

Virgie should look into the possibility of moving both bodies back to Texas through the Bahamian Courts. The probability of Stern or Dannielynn living in the Bahamas is next to nill. No one should expect Florida to do anything right. They can't even uphold their own laws or conduct a proper election.

Vergie, it's time to pack it in and slither back to your white-trash Tex-ASS life. Your 15 mintues of fame are over.

RIP Anna and Daniel....together at last.

Virgie should be ashamed of herself. Even though she claims to be her MOTHER, everyone knew what Anna wanted.

That's why she bought extra plots with Daniel's. She wanted to be with her son.

That woman should be ASHAMED, letting her daughter rot this long.

I would say Anna would be rolling over in her grave if she knew...

But I can't say that.

RIP ANNA.
