Sorry about the "wino gravedigger" remark.
I used that term for the kneejerk reaction. During that greivous time people put so much love and care to "putting away" their loved one right. Onky to have some stranger callously undo all that loving effort.

My point is don't line the pockets of strangers employed by cemetaries and funeral homes. It would be more meaningful to pass those jewels to loved ones to treasure.

Funeral homes and cemetary employees would not be able to steal anyway. U know that the coffin goes straight to burial after the ceremony, so how could they do this?

In poor countries obviously people dig graves to steal stuff, it's been reported.

Meagan Good REFLECTS On Her Friendship With Whitney Houston And Hints That Biopic May Still Happen

Before her death, Whitney Houston was considering turning her life into a movie with Meagan Good in the lead role. See what Meagan had to say about Whitney's sassy spirit and if the film will still happen inside ....

Meagan Good recently revealed to E! Online that she and Whitney previously discussed a possible movie for Meagan to star in....based on Whitney. Meagan recently talked about the flick and what she remembers about Whitney.

"We were fairly in the beginning stages," Meagan said at the Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture's Vanities party at Siren Studios in Hollywood this week. She said a big concern was how the movie would end.

"My feeling is because she has the film Sparkle coming out and she's brilliant in it and she looks beautiful and healthy, my feeling was that's how we should end the movie—as a new beginning for her."

If the movie does get made, don't expect Meagan to do any singing.

"I don't think we've ever had a singer in history that I remember that could sing like her. Plus, when people see someone's life story they want to hear that person's voice because they connect with it, in their spirit and their soul. So you would have to use her voice."

While discussing Whitney (in the present tense) Meagan began to get emotional saying,

"For anybody spending time around Whitney, she's so much fun. She's got just like a sassy attitude and is very funny and funky. She's definitely a fun person to be around."

I wasn't even trying to look...I was leaving the grocery store and bam! There it was, big as day, sad

Very poor taste to exploit the departed like that IMO.

I know in certain areas of the counrty, they do bury the coffin right in front of the famiy and the family can throw symboloic shovels of dirt onto the casket. However in my area, (north Midwest)the family walks away from the coffin still out of the ground on those cable pulley things and the preacher makes a statement that the burial is entrusted to the funeral home and names the funeral home and then the people leave the coffin along still suspended over the vault. I suspect that later after everyone has left, they bring an earth mover to push the dirt back over the coffin. I think it is easier but it looks so cold and inhumane so they don't let the family see it.

Who is to say that after you leave, someone doesn't open the lid and take things out of there?

That's interesting, I thought all places did the same thing. Here in Texas the casket is lowered and buried with everyone still there and it's done right after the funeral.

I guess the whole "ashes to ashes" thing is just southern thing.

Tribute from Robin Crawford on Esquire website: http://www.esquire.com/th...on-6654718

This is the most insightful tribute about Whitney. I always had the impression that Cissy had moulded and groomed her, so it was cool to hear that Cissy told her that she could always sing for free, that she didn't have to be a professional singer. Whitney was always in charge of her own destiny.

Thirsty ass ho

If you want to see the casket buried, it's an additional cost. Found that out when my father passed confused. Plus they charge extra if you want a saturday or sunday burial.

"nod:

In parts of the deep South lowering the casket... shoveling dirt and/or placing a flowers on the coffin as it decends is customary. As far a theft, it does happen. When I laid a relative to rest last summer, in bold letters they strongly advised, "do not bury your love one with anything of montary value."

Who took the pictures of Ms. Houston no one shall ever know, 36 years after Elvis's wake picture nobody knows. If the funeral director said it wasn't her people, I believe her. Funeral homes and families build a trusting relationship. The fact that this woman was entrusted by mother Houston to bring her daughter back homes speaks volumes. The Enquirer has no shame but I bet my last dollar, they were called when Ms. Houston's friends called downstairs for help. They started planning way before anyone could gather their thoughts..... about how they were going to get pictures. Their people were probably in NJ before Ms. Houston got there.

If this movie ever sees the light of day I think Meagan would be great for the role.

You can seal a casket.

Whitney was buried the day after her funeral. Caskets can be sealed. I'm sure Whitney's was sealed after the viewing Friday or after the funeral Saturday.

really? I didn't know that. So the family can seal the casket before they leave? Is it locked... with a key lock?

I didn't really know. there have been times I was sort of reluctant to leave my family member just sitting out like that. I wanted hang around and wait to be sure that they buried them right... but I got tired of waiting. Almost an hour and no one came around.

There are gasket seals you can add to a casket and there are casket wrapping materials.

The coffin itself can be secured after the service. It can also be buried in a stone or cement crypt in the ground which can then be sealed.
