    I too pray for Whitney's soul, her physical family & especially her mother. She knew, as mother's know the Lord would soon take her home. The battle always belonged to God yet Whitney never fully learned to turned those burdens over completely to God. As much as she knew & confused Yes, Jesus loved her...How much did she really love him?...Jesus said no more, come on to me all of you heavy & I will give you rest. No more fighting that demon Whitney, the eternal rest you sought after has been granted. Rest on my friend...

    whitney played russian roulette with her life for over 10 years, and had to have known the devastation her death would cause her daughter. you don't get much lower than that. i hope that there is more than what we know, and that she is now having to answer to, or at least having to witness the devastation caused by her selfish lifestyle & choices…a beautiful voice, but an ugly human being

    The Bible says "Bad company corrupts good character", gaurd who you hang out with, it can be the death of your prosperity in every way. I love whitney and believe she is in heaven with God and Jesus and hosts of Angels. My only wish is that she would have prospered in this life mind, body and soul more abundantly then she did. I will miss the blessing that you were to myself and all who heard your gift and saw your sweet spirit. See you in Heaven Whitney!!!

    Really? And what public memorial have you started? What about fallen heros on American soil? Have you attended a funeral, sent a thank you note, showed any appreciation instead of ranting on a website being disrespectful of the dead? No. I didn’t think so. I’ve visited the graves and honored them. I’ve honored LIVING ones. And some of them come home drug addicted from trauma. Is that what you call those who’ve fallen victim to addiction? Just a DRUG ADDICT, because soldiers fall victim to it all the time. Whitney was more than that. She was a woman who taught us we didn’t have to look like prostitutes to be respected and sell records unlike many of her counterparts. She was a woman who taught us to enjoy love songs at a time where it was starting to be unpopular. Got us through many of an occasion through her songs. Weddings, funerals, proms, etc. She taught us that it’s ok so say the Lord’s name. It’s negative people like you who expect celebs to be perfect, expect them to walk on water like Jesus, and then when they cave under pressure you’ve never experienced, you dog them out. She was someone’s daughter, mother, best friend, and sister. She never bragged about her addiction. She spoke against it and tried to get help, but you and your cronies made fun of it. I’m more proud to be an American with her under it than people like you who don’t know how to honor both contributions to society.

    Way to go! Shows you have a lot of respect for the dead in general. Our war in the Middle East is SOOOOOO justified..... I mean let's honor our fallen "real" heroes who killed so many innocent civilians in the name of "democracy" oh I'm sorry oil. Let's honor our real "heroes" who systemically torture POWs which is a war crime by the way. The really make me PROUD to be an American.
