Newark Sends Her Home

Deaths of prominent people give me pause to reflect. We have all lost someone we love along the way. To have to go through that with the prying eyes and ears of the entire world on you, well, I can't imagine.

Today Newark, New Jersey sent home their well-loved girl. It was a beautiful memorial. We've lost another legendary voice, someone whose music gave comfort and joy to many, many people. I have some friends who are taking her death hard. We each have our icons and there's no doubt Ms. Houston was one to a lot of people. Her talent was singular and outstanding. Her music will last. It's a shame we won't get to see what more she would have done. But she has better things to do now.

RIP, Whitney Houston.

Sad to see the media circus surrounding her death and funeral...I hope they leave her daughter alone for a while.

I have to admit that if I hear "And I -I -I will always love you-ou-ou" one more time this week, I will scream.

Media circus gone wild and way over the top.
