Inside Anna's Funeral

Outside, it was a circus. Inside, it was beautiful.

Larry Birkhead, Howard K. Stern, Virgie Arthur and several hundred more of Anna Nicole Smith's closest friends and family paid their last respects to the former Playboy Playmate and TRIMSPA spokesperson in a private ceremony at Mount Horeb Baptist Church in Nassau earlier today.

After the service, Anna's coffin was moved to Lake View cemetery, for the burial -- the final chapter in the tumultuous life of Anna Nicole Smith ... perhaps.

Splash News has been hired as the official photographer of the funeral. Proceeds from the sale of this and other photographs are being donated to the Dannielynn Hope Trust Fund.
