Inside Anna's Funeral

3/2/2007 3:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Outside, it was a circus. Inside, it was beautiful.

Larry Birkhead, Howard K. Stern, Virgie Arthur and several hundred more of Anna Nicole Smith's closest friends and family paid their last respects to the former Playboy Playmate and TRIMSPA spokesperson in a private ceremony at Mount Horeb Baptist Church in Nassau earlier today.

After the service, Anna's coffin was moved to Lake View cemetery, for the burial -- the final chapter in the tumultuous life of Anna Nicole Smith ... perhaps.

Splash News has been hired as the official photographer of the funeral. Proceeds from the sale of this and other photographs are being donated to the Dannielynn Hope Trust Fund.

Virgie was late to funeral because they had to get her hidden camera hooked up.

ONLY ANS's estate should get any money from pictures inside this funeral home!!! If SPLASH has sold pictures to TMZ and the revenues aren't going into the estate TMZ should be blackballed for contributing to the THEFT of DannieLynn's money!!!

BRIGGS....if you are so disgusted with Anna then why do you know so much and feel the need to write about it on a blog that you had to click on yourself.? Lets let her go now...yes it was her fault NOT Howards that she took drugs but we don't even know if that is what killed her yet. Everyone is speculating. STOP IT!!!! LET HER GO!!!!!

I agree with comment 13 a little coincidence that Spalsh is doing all the pictures inside? I think not Vergie probbaly cut a deal with them and Howard with ET but you know what Anna probably is loving the spectacle over her. May she Rest in Peace finally with her son.

Free speech    

Did anyone hear Rita Cosby's report? (she was inside the church). Stern used his time at the podium to trash Vergie and the legal process. And then his posse applauded--the funeral as his private podium? Talk about a completely inappropriate time and place for his words. Bad, bad form! Just unbelievable that he would do this--good going, Stern. I am sure "your "daughter" (oops, she is not yours!) will have the utmost respect for the decorum you displayed at her mother's funeral service. AND it was all caught for posterity by your "friends" (oops I mean business partners) @ ET!! Can the man go any lower in displaying his true self?
