Did Whitney leave a Will stating she wanted to be laid to rest in Newark?

No I don't, when my mother died I dressed with dignity, and showed I cared to put on a black dress and show my respect. It didn't kill me to put on some DECENT clothes . GET IT!!!

PRIVATE..MEANS JUST THAT, TMZ! I hope there's an investigation as to where, how and who is selling this lame AZZ photos to you morons! I hope they go after whomever is doing this. OH..AND, BTW..there was no death tub, all those photos are BS, she wasn't even in the TUB. Nor was Bobby Brown ever Banned from the funeral, nor was Bobby Kris ever denied access to see her mother.

I hope this sleaze AZZ website shuts down and action is taken against anyone selling these more private photos to TMZ. SHAME on you sleaze bags for encouraging this and buying them. SHAME ON TMZ! You're so disgusting!

My heart aches so bad for this Mother who is burying her daughter and this girl who is about to bury her "BEST FRIEND,& LOVING MOM"!!!

Heavenly father I come before you today and ask that you shine down on ms Cissy. Give her all the strength you have to allow her to get through one thing she may have never imagined PUTTING HER DAUGHTER IN THE GROUND!!! No parent should have to bury their child..My grandmother always said never question god! Just walk and he'll lead. This was destine to be. Thank you for sharing Ms Whitney with the world to hear what magic she was able bring. But one thing I need you to do and I'm sure you can I'm a believer.. GUIDE LIL MS BOBBI KRIS HOLD HER HAND TILL YOU CAN'T ANY LONGER SHE'S GOING TO NEED IT MORE THEN EVER. AND IN JESUS NAME I PRAY AMEN!!

GOD BLESS YOU CISSY & BOBBI KRIS
RIP WHITNEY

Platinum colored or platinum plated maybe, but if it was actually made of platinum it would cost a phenomenal amount of money.

Seriously, Bobbi Kristina couldn't muster anything nicer to wear to her mother's viewing than a t-shirt and jeans?!?!
