Anna Nicole's Coffin Finally Gets to Church

3/2/2007 1:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The hearse containing the body of Anna Nicole Smith arrived just moments ago at the Sandy Port community church in the Bahamas, where hundreds of mourners will pay their last respects to Anna Nicole.

Anna's mother, Virgie Arthur, arrived with the casket, though her lawyers essentially tried to stop the funeral before the body arrived. A few minutes ago, the casket was carried up to the church on a long red carpet, Hollywood premiere-style. The casket was draped in a pink cloth of some kind, with long ribbons and feathers. Neither Howard K. Stern nor Larry Birkhead were pallbearers.

The brown casket was ferried to the church in a white hearse, guided by a police motorcycle and followed by a white Bentley sedan, snaking its way up the Bahamian coastline.

No wonder Anna Nicole wanted no parts of her mother(sober or otherwise). I have never seen such disrespect for a child. You would have thought Vergie would have been the first one screaming for her child to be buried. Next time you use the dictionary, look up the word "snake", in the newer edition, Vergie's picture should be there. An absolute disgrace. Dannielynn would be better off being raised by strangers.

I am so glad that she is finally going to rest in peace...shame, shame on her mother...because of her seflfishness, ANNA cannot even have an open casket for her friends and loved ones to be able to say goodbye. I hope that her mother has total hell on earth until she reaches her true hell. Leave her daughter alone. Remember anna said, "over my dead body", well you got your wish.

I wonder how much money that SPLASH gave to Daniel's real dad to file thoses papers in the Bahamas? He hasn't a thing to do with that child for pretty much his whole life and now in death he is going to come forward and try to get Daniel's body moved to Texas. I wish all these judges would see that SPLASH is who keeps this going for their own gain. Give a little money to rednecks and they are game for anything.

had enough    

It's hard to believe that with all the attorney's involved, there isn't a lot of behind the scenes wrangling going on. My guess would be that Virgie's high paid legal team has hired an accounting firm to do a complete audit of ANS's financial records. Virgie just proved again today that he wants her fair share...

There can be little doubt that Howard has had, and in all likelyhood, still has access to her funds. If that's the case, who knows how much money is in offshore accounts by now. Howard's a creep, but he's not an idiot.

Is he the beneficiary of her life insurance policies? Not unless she changed them after Daniel died, because no way was she gonna leave $ to Howard and not Daniel! So, if he's not getting life insurance, he's gonna make sure he's got his fair share some other way.

And momma's got her fat paws in the kitty as well, still fighting that next of kin argument. It would be a real shame if anyone but the baby gets a dime.

Justice For Dannielynn    

W.hen its all said and done,Howard will come back to the United States..He can't practice law in the Bahamas.He can't make the money in the Bahamas that he would make in the U.S.Who is to say that Anna would have stayed in the Bahamas .She went there to run away from her baby's father..She didn't have money thats why she sold the pictures of Daniel..All this needs to end..Howard needs to do the right thing for once in his miserable life and let Dannielynn go up normal..The life he had with Anna was full of lies,sex and drugs...Let Dannielynn have a chance .I'm glad Anna is finally put to rest but lets not forget she let a month go by before burying Daniel
