Final Farewell For Whitney Houston - We Will Always Love You Too!
Whitney Houston's life was celebrated on Saturday February 18, 2012 at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ in a private four hour service that was broadcast live on television networks and the Internet. Many stars were in attendance, including Kevin Costner, Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys - there were a total of 16 singers and speakers at the service that was described as a "home-going" by her family. It is an expression they use in their Christian belief that in death the soul returns home to God in heaven. This was a befitting celebration of a pop icon who had a one of a kind beautiful voice - she leaves a legacy of wonderful hits including the one posted here "I Will Always Love You" her biggest hit.
Some tabloids are already speculating on her cause of death and one post I saw while in line at a supermarket stated that she spent 7 million on cocaine. I wonder where they get this info from - her dealer? I'm sure he or she is a fine upstanding citizen that keeps excellent records and reports this income on their 1040 Schedule C! Her family and friends deserve some time be left alone to grieve - especially her daughter and her mother. The service concluded as the pallbearers carried her casket and her song "I Will Always Love You" played. She was to be buried in Westfield, NJ
