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.
