My dearest Whitney, words fail me, can't find the words to express the dept of my feelings bout your passing. Your voice is irreplaceable, we've heard nice, and very good voices, but God gave only you, your kind of voice. I love you so much and I miss you so much. May God watch over Bobbi Kristina and make her a source of joy and happiness to herself and your family always. Sleep my sweet, sleep well. Fatimah.
Whitney, may you rest in peace. I still find it so hard to believe that you have left this planet. Your gift was truly bestowed on you by the Most High. Your voice was ethereal, and there was just something about you that made you connect with people who never knew you personally. You truly were a gift from God to us. You will forever be missed. Rest in peace my dear sister.
Whitney not only are you family but my inspiration for all I do regarding entertainment I Love You and you will continue live on through me real talk Harlem and Newark Stand UP!!!!
I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
from the beginning...to end.
He noted that first came her date of birth
and spoke the following date with tears.
But he said what mattered most of all
was the 'Dash' between those years.(1963-2012)
For that dash represents all the time
that she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own;
the cars...the house...the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard...
are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left,
that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down long enough
to consider what's true and real.
And always try to understand
the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger.
And show appreciation more.
And love the people in our lives
like we've never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile...
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.
So, when your eulogy's being read,
with your life's actions to rehash...
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you spent your dash?
This is one of my favorite poems. Puts life into perspective. Rest in peace, sweet Whitney. Thank you for sharing your life with us...
A new article on Whitney....
Whitney you were a star here on earth; now you shine above us forever shine as a star.
I can only imagine what this family is feeling. The healing will be like a bumpy journey since Whitney was no ordinary person and so much has come to surface since she left.
I wish that she, and her family would have been given more of an opportunity to grieve and try to accept the reality; but, again Whitney was larger than life....to have her daughter interviewed so soon I can only think that maybe she is still not accepting this and this is the only way to unleash all of what she has bottled up..to us who infact as fans, faithful fans can share in her lost.
Bobbi, if you are reading this..be strong, let go and let God give to you His strength, His peace and help guide you into healing inside by His unconditional love....dont pull away, dont fight,
2Corthians4-8-7: "Bobbi you may be hard pressed on everyside, yet not crushed; you are perplexed, but not in despair; you may feel persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, BUT NOT DESTROYED! "
Your mother lived by the Word and so must you in order that you may live a fruitful life and remember that your mom now lives in you.
May God bless your life and protect your path.....
Brand new to the community, and I very much appreciate the honor and opportunity to be a part of something bigger than my self. I am listening, along with my fiancee'--Florha, now to Ms. Oprah Winfrey conducting the OWN interview, and I am a bit troubled as to something, it is almost a question, and I am wondering if someone would be willing to answer my question....It is concern of Whitney's drug use...Clearly their was an issue, on again off again back on again, those in Whitney's family have said, publicly, that her then husband, Bobby Brown did not, initially, introduce her to drugs/alcohol, but that while they were together drugs/alcohol was being abused. Whitney's family and additionally those that knew her best say, even though they do not like to say it, that Whitney was abusing drugs/alcohol long before she ever met and married Bobby Brown...My question is this you just don't start something without first having been formally introduced to it? Someone somewhere, weather Bobby Brown, Shaka Kan or Dionne Warwick had to formally introduce her to the drugs/alcohol? Who did that? Why was it allowed to continue/go on? Those will say, Patricia Houston just did to Oprah tonight, "well she was a grown woman the decision to continue to use drugs or not to use drugs was her own." Fine, point well taken, but who did it?! Who formally introduced her, Whitney Houston, to drugs/alcohol and why? Was it to relax/unwind after a killer performance, simple recreation or just for the fun of it? Who introduced, formally, her to it and why? That is what I wanna know. Whitney Houston was one of my musical heroes, she was an icon in professional music and a true lady and living legend and someone somewhere didn't like that FACT, or didn't want to allow and or permit that FACT to happen so they did all they could within their power to destroy her and they should be held accountable for their foolish action! I believe had she not been formally introduced to drugs/alcohol as she was she would be alive, healthy and happy today, singing and doing what God had, clearly, placed her on this earth to do, to touch millions upon millions of lives--weather singularly or collectively Whitney Elizabeth Houston touched US, ALL of US in a special and mighty way, and somebody needs to have their head kicked in for their stupidity and foolishness, in my humble opinion, period....
Pat Houston thank the Lord Whitney had you. We love Whitney! Many Blessings to you, Gary( The Music Man-DePaul) your family, Bobby Kristina and Ms. Cissy Houston.
What an amazing talent. I remembering growing up watching her on the big screen... singing her songs....She will always and Forever be embedded in our hearts. I always wished I couldve met her. Her presence was so strong you can just feel it in her songs and her through her words, the way she talked the way she laughed. She will be truly missed. She was truly an angel that God came and collected. As you are surley born, you will surley die, It's God will. Rest on Whitney, take your rest. I will forever feel you through your songs. God bless the Houston Family, and her Pride and Joy Bobbi....You will be okay. She will always be with you. She lives inside of you.
One month ago a piece of me went home to heaven.. At 7 yrs old, you & your debut album "Whitney Houston" is who I genuinely fell in love with.. No I didn't personally kno you but your music played a huge part in my childhood & the feelings that I get from hearing your music brings me back there.. Feelings are a strong emotion & it hurts badly... I love u Whitney Houston, u were my inspiration & I will always think positive of u!! Your beautiful smile & soul lives on... It's not only the ppl we personally kno who can impact our lives & u definitely impacted mine!
When I was younger, I used to say that I loved you just as much as I loved my mom (u will not understand that unless u know the things that were going on in my life).. You filled a void in my life at that time.. That's why you, Whitney Elizabeth Houston are PERFECT in my eyes.. You will always be to ME no matter what!! I can't stop crying for you..
