"Florida Circuit Court Judge Larry Seidlin ruled Thursday that Richard Milstein, the court-appointed guardian of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter Dannielynn, will get custody of Smith's remains.
Judge Seidlin also said that he'd like Smith to be buried in the Bahamas next to her son, Daniel Smith, who died last year.
"I want her buried with her son," a tearful Seidlin said when announcing his ruling. "I want her buried with her son in the Bahamas. I want them to be together."
The judge directed Milstein to consult with Smith's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead, and her companion/lawyer, Howard K. Stern, in the burial plans for Smith. When Seidlin announced the ruling both Stern and Arthur broke down in tears.
"The Broward County medical examiner is ordered to release those remains to Milstein in accordance with Milstein's (direction)," said Seidlin. "Milstein is directed to consult with Arthur, Birkhead and Stern with respect to disposition of Anna Nicole Smith's remains." But he noted that Milstein had final discretion over Smith's final interment."
** I say it's about damn time! This judge was a mess!
