One day after her highly-publicized and emotional funeral service, Whitney Houston was laid to rest in far more private fashion.

Fans lined the streets around the entrance to Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J. Sunday, throwing rose petals and screaming “We love you Whitney!” as the gold hearse carrying the singer's body arrived to bring her to her final resting place.

The burial was a much smaller gathering than yesterday’s star-studded memorial. Escorted by police motorcycles, the processional following the hearse included three gold limos, a large black SUV, three black limos and about five cars.

Houston was laid to rest alongside her father, John Russell Houston, who died in 2003.



The singer passed away on Feb. 11 at age 48. Her official cause of death has yet to be announced.
