A gold hearse carrying Whitney Houstons casket this morning pulled out of Wigham Funeral Home in Newark to head to the stars burial in Westfield.
Just after 11:10 a.m. today, Houstons hearse followed behind a black Chevy pick-up truck with a bed brimming with flowers light purple roses, pink carnations and white lilies among the arrangement.
The police escorted funeral procession left from the rear of the funeral home, turning onto Shipman Street, to head to Fairview Cemetery some 20 miles away.
We love you, Whitney! fans called out trotting next to the hearse for about a block as it slowly pulled away. A backseat window displayed a black and white headshot photo of the star.
Barbara Davis waited outside since 8:30 this morning to get a glimpse of Houston. The lifelong Newark resident had already been to Wigham Funeral Home twice last week after news of Houstons death.
To be here at her home-going is an honor and a blessing, Davis, 53, said.
