I Love Staten Island, But…

I didn’t need to know about this stank splattering on our shore:
Inside the lavish funeral of a tragic starlet

The final chapter of Anna Nicole Smith’s short, tabloid-splashed life came to a close on Friday with a former Staten Islander coordinating her lavish memorial service in the Bahamas.

Robert Cherubini, 35, formerly of the borough’s Huguenot section, helped embalm the body of the ex-Playboy centerfold and glitzy reality-show subject and directed her elaborate funeral — replete with a coterie of flying doves and a mahogany coffin shrouded in a rhinestone-studded blanket.

“It was the biggest, high-profile case I’ve ever handled,” said Cherubini, who manages the Aycock Funeral Home in Jupiter, Fla., and previously served for 12 years as a funeral director at the Meislohn-Silvie Funeral Home in Port Richmond before moving to Florida in 2004.

I’m calling “Shannanigans!” on this one… he was a funeral director at Mezzy-Sillvy when he was twenty three? That’s like… what? Fresh out of ghoul school?

I’ve had family and friends waked out of that place….

Did everyone do an organ count before the boxes got put in the ground? Make sure the bodies were actually buried with their jewelry?
