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.

I understand that a police S.W.A.T. team had to waste time and resources yesterday to remove TMZ vultures from a rooftop adjacent to the funeral home ... hope they gassed them first!

NJ sucks    

Who is paying for all of the police and security? The state of NJ? Bunch of suckers. No wonder it has such a reputation as a POS state!

Bobbi Kristina looks like Raven Simone. How did Whitney end up with that? She should have married someone a lot less FUG than Bobby Brown.

Rest in Peace Whitney Houston next to your beloved father. Hope you find in death what you couldn't find in life... peace and eternal happiness.

They shared her funeral service with us. I think it's very disrespectful for any media outlet to do this in a family's time of grief. Yes it's a news story. But let them have some privacy. Put yourself in their shoes.

It is shameful to roll cameras of a hearse going to the burial site. She wasn't perfect, but no one is in this life.
TMZ is milking this story to death. Let her go, she is gone now from this world. She will be forever at rest, next to her father. She could have wanted to be buried anywhere else in the world, but she wanted only to be next to her father. I hope her mom can make through this sad event.
Her mom has prayed and cried over whitney a long time, this is sad. But, Miss Cissy knows where her daughter is now. No more worrying about what hanger on is trying to use and abuse your daughter. Its over, the end.

RIP whitney. Your music lives on.

Burt Bacarach was on the other night saying that Faith hill had to replace her at the oscars the night before because in practice she was messed up. 3 or 4 other talk show host said she was a no show and didn't let them know until the hour before her appearance. She was fragile and a really messed up beautiful lady who was unable to know how to deal with the gift of her voice. She should have gotten some counseling. And she spoiled her daughter the same way - giving her $1000 a week allowance as a pre-teen to go to the mall and movies with her boyfriend.

Let's not forget she did not die of "natural causes", she was a drug and alcohol abuser. She chosed this life and at the end she had no voice and was broke. So why do they make her look like a "hero". Just another "crack head" bit the dust.

This is a shame that people don't have nothing else to do but post negative comments. Everyone that is not giving their condolences to the family need to get a life. CNN and TMZ are not the only websites on the internet. Apparently you want to follow Whitney Houston legacy and provide negative comments because your life is so bitter. Cissy Houston my condolences go out to you and your family.
