My husband has always adored Whitney as well. From the time I met him he has expressed how Whitney Houston is the best singer of all time. We felt like we knew here. When I told him the news all my husband could say is "NOoo!" Especially since Whitney Houston reminds us in some strange way of his mother.
Her songs make me smile because it takes me to a happy time in my life, but her passing makes me so sad. I pray for her family especially her daughter, I can't imagine how she feels.
