Howard K. Stern's Eulogy for Anna Nicole Smith

What was it about Anna Nicole Smith that captivated the people world over? There was a façade that she presented to the media - the Playboy centerfold, the actress, the girl who married a man old enough to be her grandfather, a silly girl that smiled for the paparazzis, put on her happy face and did everything over the top. Sometimes us humans put on a mask and present a happy face to the people around us. What made Anna Nicole Smith so different was that she sometimes fell apart and she did not care who saw it, she did things her way and in the end you have to admire her because that takes guts and courage.

She was also a loving mother that could not bear when her son died. And as for her gold digging ways, in her funeral arrangements she has specifically asked that her late husband’s ashes should be buried with her. What kind of a self-respecting gold digger does that?

But one thing that was true wherever Anna Nicole Smith went, the media followed. And that has continued even in the aftermath of her death. After weeks of family feuds and bitter court proceedings the court has finally ordered who has the right to her remains and where she should be put to rest. To finally rest in peace after years of living in the public eye. And even after her death for all intents and purposes she did things her way and although her funeral was a solemn affair, it was also in her favorite color – pink, so over the top yet so unquestionably her.

Howard K. Stern made a moving eulogy for Anna Nicole Smith, his friend and his lover. He lovingly described how he did know the truth about her and it was not what the media portrayed, but rather what Anna Nicole wanted them to see. He described her strength and her kindness and her love for her children. He described her spirit and her defiance, it takes a lot of chutzpah to hold your head high and endure the ridicule she encountered every day. But one thing she could not take was the loss of her son Daniel and in the end it lead to her premature death.

Howard K. Stern in his moving eulogy made a promise and vow to protect her daughter until the day he dies. And as the bitter feuds between family and friends, workers and confidants continue, while the tabloids still have Anna Nicole’s face splashed on their front pages every day, while the rest of muse over the fact can money really buy you happiness, Anna Nicole Smith has finally got what she wanted – she is resting peacefully next to her son.
