Family and friends bury Anna Nicole Smith in the Bahamas

UPI News Service, 03/02/2007 

A pink shroud of feathers, ribbons and rhinestones draped the casket of Anna Nicole Smith in the Bahamas church where friends and family said goodbye Friday.

After the service the body was taken to Lakeview Memorial Gardens to be buried beside her son, Daniel, who was buried in September, the Miami Herald said.

Nearly three weeks after her death, Smith was finally buried. She died Feb. 8 of unknown causes in a Florida hospital. Because her 2001 will left no burial directives, three people went to court to seek custody of her body, which was awarded to her 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn, and her court-appointed guardian.

Smith's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, asked a judge in the Bahamas Friday morning to stop the funeral and exhume Daniel's body for burial in Texas. Bahamas radio station GEMS 105.9 reported that her request was denied.

In Florida, Arthur appealed -- and lost -- a judge's decision to award Smith's remains to her daughter and guardian.

Arthur, Smith's ex-lover Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern, Smith's companion at the time she died, each could invite about 100 guests to the memorial. About 30 family and close friends attended the interment.
