Whitney you'll be greatly missed. You have always been loved and will continue to be loved for a lifetime. Your music and beauty will never die. I hope you find peace in that new place you could not find here on earth.

Whitney Houston may end up being better understood in death than in life. She spent her entire life with her heart filled with love and in Christ and she is most certainly in a better place, now.

I smile when someone says, "what is your favorite Whitney Houston song" because as soon as you decide on one that you think was the best, you hear another one that makes you think again! I simply can't think of another artist that gives you goosebumps and chills just listening to her voice!

More than anything, though she was simply the most amazing female singer that the world has known and, perhaps, will ever know...God rest her soul.
