Happy Birthday to the best that every did it, my all time fav, the Voice: Whitney E. Houston!!!

Happy Birthday Nippy. We missed you so much :_(

Happy Birthday dear Whitney.You are teh best forever.Miss you always......

To my Whitney....Happy 50th Birthday

If I could have a lifetime wish
a dream that would come true
I'd pray to God with all my heart
for yesterday and you.
A thousand words can't bring you back
I know because I've tried
And neither will a million tears
I know because I've cried.
You left behind my broken heart
and happy memories too
I never wanted memories...
I only wanted you.

God Bless my love...

Yours Always ,

My Whitney

My thoughts are ever with you
Though you have passed away.
And those who loved you dearly
Are thinking of you today.

Everyday in some small way
Memories of you come my way.
Though absent, you are always near
Still missed, loved and always dear.

God Bless my love,

Yours Always ,

I remember buying the 12" of I Wanna Dance, which was no. 1 in the uk singles chart in June 87 or thereabouts. My mother had just died of cancer, everyone was treading on egg shells around me, my friends didn't know what to say and everyone was sending condolences. I just wanted something positive, buoyant and happy to counteract the sadness and wash away those vacuous pointless things that people say like "she's better off" (ah no she isn't actually she was 43 and is dead). The song was not important lyrically but it was just a great summer song that you could dance to. I'm told it was written by boy meets girl, which makes so much sense now. Fast forward to today and I still cannot believe we are here, mourning the loss of Whitney Houston, in such a tragic way. If only things could have been different... Well Whitney, wherever you are, know that you are missed by your fans all over.the world, selfish people that we are because we know there is no more music to listen to, there are no more concerts to go to, no interviews to watch, no magazine covers to look at, no interviews to hear. Well just have to remember you as you were then... God bless.

I am so glad I was around to see your greatness in real time. May your legacy in music live on forever. You are the greatest that ever was or will be in my opinion. I hope wherever you are right now you can feel the love and appreciation that still comes your way as we celebrate the second birthday since your passing.

Happy Birthday Whitney.

The world is just not the same w/o you, nothing has changed, just getting worse. I know this is your birthday, and we are honoring you. Happy Birthday, we miss you, and you ain't missing much, but I suppose you all ready know that. Hey P.S. you did it your way, and no one can take that away from you. Luv you, hope to feel your loving spirit, when it is my turn. Happy Birthday Whitney, from the bottom of my heart.

My most memorable thing about Whitney is that I was 16yrs. old going to my 1st concert in Cincinnati, Oh. I went back for the 2nd show and was able to see her tour bus up close. I didn't get to meet her but I still will hold that close to my heart. Seeing her 1st video of You Give Good Love made me a fan from jump. I miss your melody & true humbleness of yourself. Your birthday is more joyous than ever before bcuz your with God & His angels. I know my parents welcomed you too. Love you Nippy, I will see you one day in heaven. Happy Birthday!
