Whitney Houston

Laid to Rest

2/19/2012 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pop legend Whitney Houston was buried today at Fairview Cemetery.

Pop legend Whitney Houston was buried today at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, NJ.

Houston was laid to rest next to her father, John Russell Houston, who died in 2003. The burial was a small "family only" affair and not the star-studded event that yesterday's moving funeral service was.

As TMZ first reported, Whitney's casket was heavily protected since the funeral yesterday ... with nearly 10 security guards working in shifts to keep it guarded.

Houston passed away back on February 11. A cause of death has yet to be determined.

In 1991, Houston put together her Welcome Home Heroes concert with HBO for the soldiers fighting in the Persian Gulf War and their families. The free concert took place at Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, Virginia in front of 3,500 servicemen and women. HBO descrambled the concert so that it was free for everyone to watch.[90] Houston's concert gave HBO its highest ratings ever I posted this because I'm so sick of people complaining about the flag being lowered for Whitney. BEFORE YOU ASSUME, LEARN THE FACT, BEFORE YOU JUDGE, UNDERSTAND WHY, BEFORE YOU HURT SOMEONE, FELL, BEFORE YOU SPEAK, THINK. R.I.P. Whitney. <3

Why was Jesse Jackson sitting on the stage ?
He looked bored and disinterested in the moving tribute to Whitney ?

One of the more humorous sights at this funeral was the fashion statement made by the funeral director, whose costume was a perfect match to the gold color of the hearse. I mean to ask, are these people a class act? The disorganization and harsh noise masked as religious music of the ceremony could only have been cheapened by a Funeral Director dressed to match the hearse!

You have just shown your disrespect towards a deceased person. You truly have no fear of God. Do you have genuine love for anyone? Think of someone you love with all your heart and soul, you lose that person, and the response is someone trying to do an advertisement. But your actions fit well with the rest of this cruel world we live in. Hope you feel good about yourself. Blessing and peace to the Whitney Houston family and you too Bobby Brown. Through your ups and downs in your marriage, I know how much Whitney loved you and I know you loved her too. Sorry for all those that judge your feelings. God Blessings To All.

Enough is ENOUGH of Whitney Houston !!!!!!!!!!!!! She was not an Example for our youth.
This endless tirade of broadcasting of her is unsensitive to a Fox News Channel. I watch
FoxNews almost exclusively and I have enough of this to change the channel. It is totally
OVERDONE !!!! I am listening to Geraldo. or I was . NOW is Channel-switching time. I am disgusted !!!

Some people dont understand the battle that millions of people like whitney houston? michael Jackson? Lindsey Lohan? and of course Elvis Presley. I believe that the money, the power, the celebrity status is overwhelming for many of these people? The more money they have the more accessible prescription drugs? illegal drugs? alcohol? Its a vicious cycle. Addiction kills people from all walks of life? rich,poor, black, white,asian hispanic,addiction has no
problem affecting any of us. I feel that its an epidemic? as a therapist and substance abuse specialist. The war on drugs will not stop.People who use drugs and alcohol? are not weak? they are trying not to feel real life problems. In whitney houston case? she was trying to come back? bigger and better as a singer, actress etc? but this woman who had it all? was just like the rest of us? she was human? meaning, her self worth? her voice? her addiction?
slowed her down to death. I worry about her daughter? whos next?

Ppl, have respect for the dead. Judge not for you did not walk in her shoes. Live your lives and stop trying to ridicule someone else. God is the only true and just one judge.... focus on living your life for God. She was givinig a beautiful send off so let her RIP.

i just hope to god they do better w/ bobbi/kris - they have to learn there is no such thing as magical rehab - they kept sending whitney, but didn't do the family therapy, hetting a sponsor and attend meetings when she got out - any can get clean for a min after rehab, but this family needs to learn the hard work the whole family needs to keep them sober - so pray for bobbi and include after rehab - 60 meetings - 60 days, then keep up for the rest of her life!
