Whitney Houston has been laid to rest beside her father, John Russell Houston.
According to wire reports: a gold hearse carrying Whitney Houston's casket [Sunday] morning pulled out of Whigham Funeral Home in Newark to head to the star's burial in Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey.
Just after 11:10 a.m. Sunday, Houston's hearse followed behind a black Chevy pickup truck with a bed brimming with flowers -- light purple roses, pink carnations and white lilies among the arrangement.
"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.
The driver of the hearse appeared to be crying as she played "I will always love you."
