Tragic Farewell To Bobbi Kristina: Casket of Whitney's Beloved Daughter Arrives At Church

A hearse carrying the coffin of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, arrived at a church in Atlanta ahead of her funeral today.

The coffin was lifted from the back of a hearse in Atlanta, Georgia, by four men dressed in black suits as family members gathered for the service which is believed to have a 'Sweet 16' theme on the insistence of Bobbi's aunt, Pat Houston.

The hearse was escorted by two policemen on motorcycles into the parking lot of St. James United Methodist Church.

Security is tight with check points manned by family personnel and Georgia State Troopers in anticipation of VIP guests from the Houston and Brown families, including Bobbi's father, Bobby Brown and her mother's cousin, Dionne Warwick.
