Rest In Paradise, Whitney Houston

Yesterday  Cissy Houston shared her daughter with us one final time, selflessly allowing us all to grieve. The homegoing service was powerful, very personal, not staged and brought us to tears. We were blessed and privileged to whitness tears and laughter from Whitney´s family and closer friends via TV or internet - and it was spectacular. 

Ebony Magazine tweeted: "This is a global Black moment for the world to see." 
And yes, it was.
It also was a global moment of love, which is always stronger than death.

In case you missed to watch the service or want to rewatch some of the remarkable speeches  or tributes from Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, R.Kelly please find some takes on YouTube.

Yesterday was Whitney´s day... 

Today , as the world moves on, our prayers go out to Whitney Houston´s family, especially her daughter Bobbi Kristina and her mother Cissy. We are sending out our love to anyone who loved Whitney Houston as a person and  feels unable to move on, because they have lost much more than one of the gratest voices ever. 

She had to fight  against a lot in life - may she now rest in paradise.

Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson were bonded in friendship for over 20 years. May they now continue their friendship in heaven.

"Gone Too Soon"

Like A Comet
Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky 
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon

Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon

Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon

Gone Too Soon
~ Michael Jackson
