Whitney Houston
's body triggered high emotion from fans as it arrived at a New Jersey funeral home Monday night ... in a golden hearse.

Fans descended on the Whigham Funeral Home ... waiting for the singer's body to arrive.

A few opportunists were selling "In Memory of Whitney Houston" t-shirts for $10 a pop in the parking lot.

Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, waited outside the home as well.

As TMZ previously reported, the family was divided over where to bury Whitney. Cissy and cousin Dionne Warwick wanted the burial to take place in Atlanta -- but were convinced by the rest of the family to bury her in Newark.

I lost a child as well back in the late 1990's to prescription drugs and I still haven't gotten over it. I can feel cissy's pain. You should never have to bury your children! It's just really a shame! I feel bad for Bobbi Kristina and Cissy! It will get easier over the years.

To Harvey and your entire douchebag staff....opportunists aren't the people selling $10 t-shirts commemorating the life of their hometown girl gone big. Dirty, low-life, blood on their hands opportunists are what you and the dogs are that took, sold, bought and posted pictures on this website of Whitney's room, death tub, room service table and shots in the hallway outside of her room!

I seriously doubt that is Whitney's mom in this photo. I wouldn't think she would be standing around with the rest of the public. Plus, another news source said she was waiting inside the funeral home, not outside.

First of all my Sincere Prayers go out to Whitney Houston's Mother and Daughter! They are going through an extremely difficult time!
I understand this is a public forum and everyone has the right to free speech, that being said what are some of you thinking. This is a heartbroken family and deserve support and respect. Obviously some people making such hateful comments on this site have never lost a loved one way too soon! God Bless Whitney's family and sing with the Angels Whitney!
