On Monday February 12th Whitney Houston‘s body was flown by private jet to her home town in New Jersey, as her family prepares to lay her to rest.
After landing, the hearse carrying Whitney’s corpse received a heavy police escort through Newark, New Jersey as her family prepares for the final services at Whigham Funeral Home.
According to Huffington Post:
Houston’s family raised the possibility of holding a wake Thursday and a funeral Friday at Newark’s Prudential Center, which hosts college and professional sporting events and seats about 18,000 people. A picture of Houston appeared Monday night on the electronic board outside the arena, one of the nation’s busiest entertainment venues.
Houston’s body was found in the tub of her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel, and it’s believed she passed away due to a combination of prescription drugs and alcohol.
It seems like the whole world is taking it hard, Whitney’s mother seemed very distraught while heading into the funeral home.
Mourners left flowers, balloons and candles around the tall brick Newark church where Whitney got her start.
