WESTFIELD, N.J. (AP) -- Whitney Houston has been laid to rest in New Jersey. Fans and onlookers gathered in several places along the route the motorcade took from a Newark funeral home to the cemetery about 20 miles away in Westfield.
Houston was buried next to her father, who died in 2003. Some ran alongside the hearse as it began the journey and several yelled out "We love you, Whitney" as it pulled away.
The 48-year-old singer died last weekend in California, hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party. No cause of death has been determined.
Houston's burial ends a weekend that saw the pop star's family and friends gather at a star-filled funeral to mourn her loss and celebrate her career.
