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.

Why is everyone making a big deal over a worthless, druggie, has been who's been nothing but a joke for the last 10 years?
Her voice hasn't been worth a damn for ages.

She has a grown daughter that should be considered first unless she allowed Cissy to take over or unless she was too mentally unstable at this point to make or suggest decisions.

Mrs.Cissy Houston & Bobbie, May God grant you the strength and peace to get through your tragic loss.I am so ashame to see so many negative comments on this site. I never thought Americans could be so cold hearted and cruel. My Family and I lost our 15yr. old son back in 1993. I know what you are going through and my heart and prayers are with you. Mrs Huston I know that this is the hardest thing you will ever have to do, as it was for me and my wife.This is the last thing you will ever do for your daughter. Don't let the public take that away from you.God speed his love and peace to You,Bobbie and your entire Family.

What happened,happened.There's no point judging her for what she did.Besides,we all make mistakes.Nobody knows how she/he will cope with the cir***stances of this world in the future.I think we should respect the famil's feelings,this moment.As for the burial,I feel Cissy and Dione have the right to decide as they have played the important part in her life.All I wanna say is,R.I.P,Whitney

There are some people who believe that they are law abiding citizens and they are fair people. Yet, they are quick to deny a group or individual the right to express their belief. The Constitution gives everyone the right of expression and freedom of religion. We believe that our message comes from God. Those who deny us this right will have to answer to God in this world and on the Judgment Day and they might have to deal with a lawsuit because our attorneys are looking at the responses when people deny us the right to present our belief.

Whitney Houston presents in her life that she was a child of God, yet people who serve God in the Bible never spent their time entertaining the people of the world. They spent their time defending God’s Word because the devil is trying to destroy the truth of God by setting up people in false religions who are saying they are the people of God. All we want to do is to give people an opportunity to see things in a spiritual way.
