Anna Nicole Smith funeral and burial to be private but "over the top"
UPI News Service, 03/01/2007
The memorial service and burial of Anna Nicole Smith in the Bahamas will be private but "over the top," a friend of the late model said.
Smith's Bahamian burial was given the go-ahead Wednesday, when a Florida appellate court rejected an appeal by Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, who sought to gain custody of Smith's body for burial in Texas, her home state. After the ruling, Arthur said she would not file any more appeals.
The body is expected to be flown early Friday from Florida to the Bahamas, where it will be taken to the Mount Horeb Baptist Church for a memorial service, E! News said. About 300 guests are expected to attend the service.
