Where were you when you first heard? And how did you hear?

I was at home, waking up very early due to jet lag but excited to see some pics or footage from the PGP... I read it on Twitter and couldn't believe it. All I said, was "no... no... no..." before i got confirmation and started to cry...

We’ve both loved Whitney since Jesus was a boy. I didn’t want to break down in front of my friend. So I went to the bathroom to pull myself together. We spent the rest of the night playing her music.
Cyndi is a photographer so she put together an impromptu photo shoot to cheer me up. It’s something we used to do all the time—just to play and be silly. It didn’t work this time. Needless to day. A day I will never forget. A day I knew would come but alas came far too soon.

It was so hard to take in. I don't know if I have really fully understood it yet, even thought I saw the funeral...

Later that day, I was at a wedding. One of my friends sent me a text message that read: WHITNEY!!!!! I thought he was texting me that because she was on the red carpet. Shortly after that, another friend sent me another text that said WHITNEY IS ______. I started shaking. Then the phone starting . I knew it was true.

I had spent the whole day at a cheerleading competition for my goddaughter, and also having a very wonderful texting convo with my BFF. After it was over, we (me, my mom, my two sisters, an aunt, a cousin, my goddaughter, and her friend) went to try out a new restaurant nearby called Jason's Deli.
Halfway through my turkey & ham club sandwich, my cousin gasps and reads aloud: "Whitney Houston dead at 48!!!" It was on a text she got from USA Today. I guess they send breaking news alert text messages. Anyway I didn't believe it, claiming "This has happened before." 2 or 3 min later, my BFF texts to say the same thing. A minute or so after that, I simultaneously got about 7 texts from 7 different people, asking me if I'd heard, or if I'm OK, etc. It froze my phone.
Then, I began shaking.....
It was hard trying to hold it together, considering I was out in public. Somehow I did, hoping it was yet another hoax, but still shaking. I just knew I had to get up from the table and get home.
Sure wish it had been a hoax. Part of me still wishes it was...
