Whitney Houston's journey 'home' ends with a private burial

Whitney Houston's journey "home" ends with a private burial in New Jersey on Sunday as questions persist about what caused the superstar's death.

Houston will be buried next to her father at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, south of Newark.

Her burial brings an end to her "coming home," as her family has dubbed the invitation-only memorial service held a day earlier at her childhood church in Newark.

The family-only burial is in contrast to the emotionally-charged, star-studded memorial service held at New Hope Baptist Church, where Houston, nicknamed "Nippy," was soloing in the junior choir by age 11.

    get this Whitney Houston crap off the tv and talk about something important. I know what you're doing and I won't tolerate it. Your propaganda techniques are pathetic and totally transparent, if you're going to bother do it with some skill.

    whitney was a terrific singer; that's it. not a pope or a president. While her death was tragic, she brought it on herself. mourn the millions pf people who die from diseases that were not self inflicted. CNN get a life. stop broadcasting this stuff 24/7.

    while everyone is busy raising Whitney up to sainthood why don't people realize that she smoked crack in front of her 7 year old daughter who now probably has an addiction. She was a great singer but no saint.
