Whitney Houston Laid to Rest

Whitney Houston’s was buried today at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey. The singer had a heartfelt, moving ceremony yesterday, which was described as a “home going” service.

Among those who attended the burial were Whitney’s mother, Cissy Houston, and her daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

Yesterday's ceremony involved a tearful performance from Aretha Franklin as well as a eulogy from Gospel legend Marvin Winans.
