Anna's Mom Tries to Stop Funeral!

3/2/2007 12:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: A Bahamian judge is currently hearing arguments from Virgie's attorneys. The petition hearing began at 10:30 AM EST. The judge will make a decision this morning, based on the arguments.

TMZ has confirmed that lawyers for Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, have filed a petition in a Bahamas court, essentially trying to stop the funeral before Anna's body is buried.

Currently, the hearse carrying Anna's body has come to a stop, just yards from the church where the funeral is set to take place.

Come on Vergie, let your daughter go to her final resting place & RIP. This on going battle over where she should be buried is truly sad & disrespectfully to Anna.

Only the wishes of the decedent were to have been considered. Her wishes were very clear by her words and actions. A person cannot ask for more than to have peace in where they desire to be for their final resting place...and that place was not what her family wanted. She had no love for TX and had expressed that repeatedly. It doesn't matter what Vergie wanted...or Howard wanted...or Larry wanted...or even Dannielynn...it only mattered what the deceased wanted.

Any person...mother or not...who would do this to their child, not being respectful of their wishes, for whatever purpose, monetarily or otherwise, is as lousy as they come. It is a sad day...because her mother is seeing to it that what she didn't get in life, she is not getting in death, either.

How sad and pathetic that she would try to stop her daughter from being buried next to her son in the place she chose for him.

Maybe something very dramatic is going to happen right now at the funeral concerning the investigation.

If anyone has any doubts about the motivations behind Anna Nicole's "Texas family's" actions, listen to the February 17th interview done with her brother Donnie Hogan by Rita Cosby on MSNBC. In the interview Donny says that Stern is trying to "take everything" from them. That's what its about - property and ownership/control. Donnie also mentions that he didn't even meet Anna until his late teen years - but this is a close knit family who truly knows Anna's wishes?

Who says they belong in the States Molly? I think it is sad that everyone who claimed they loved her are all out for her money. Let that woman and her son rest in peace. The crazy life that she led has finally come to an end let her have peace now.
