I too haven't had the pleasure of seeing her live. Watching her concerts at times it seems as thought i was there. She looks so fresh and full of love when preforming live that I have seen on Youtube. In my opinion she sounds better live than studio. It is a shame Arista didn't release her concerts and live cds. So far the only concerts iv'e seen are the 25 th or 30th anniv. For Arista, classic Whitney from DC, Brunei and South Africa.

Okay so I been doing pretty good, I'm listening to her music a lot more and watching her on Youtube. I watched a bunch of NBL tour videos and was 'okay' but today while I was doing good, I watched a "tribute" video, and I broke right down.

Took the words right out of my mouth (hands). Honest to god. I was coming to this exact thread with the sole purpose of saying the same thing.

Now I wish she had retired and bought an island home and gave up show business. Truth be told.

Knowing the alternative, I'm sure we all do.

As for the original post, sometimes the simplest words and sentences can perfectly describe what I'm feeling.

I have an empty void in my heart, hurts so bad. Don't think anything can fill it as she filled my heart. Sigh.

Here we are 10 weeks after our beautiful Whitney passed away and just when I think I'm starting to cope with her death something pushes me right back down. Yesterday and today I have been carrying a heavy heart and had to cry my self to sleep last night. I still can't and don't wanna believe Whitney is gone forever! I want to wake up from this horrible nightmare now!!!

I find myself on Youtube listening to and downloading fan remixes and mashups to play on my Ipod because it gives me the illusion that despite her going into the light two months ago, I still have something new to embrace.

Just when I think I'm coming to peace with all of this, I hear a song on the radio on a station that stopped playing her songs long ago. And then the DJ says, "that was HWIK by the 'late, great..." She was great before she was late, so why are you just now giving her props. I should be happy to hear the positivity, but right now it still makes me bitter. I want her back...

I've been on the go alot here lately, spending alot of time alone in the car. Listening finally to all things Whitney, It is just the craziest thing
that everything sounds brand new. Like I've never heard any of it before even tho I know every MMmmm, uh, lord and boy, LOL, in every song.
How is it that it brings such happiness to my soul but there's a place in my heart that hurts so bad at the same time.... I wonder if this will
always be from now on. I have discovered too that I can not listen to My Love or LTM at all, maybe someday that will change.
I just keep thinking I'm so happy she is in my life....we were alone and she was singing her songs so meeee.....(and I was singing along, badly :whistling:
and smiling)
Wish you all well, much love

Last night was rough. I got to thinking about all the unanswered questions, how could she have gone so soon, why did she have to go, how is she not here, why is it so hard for me to grasp, all of that. I ended up crying myself to sleep.

I just miss her.

And today I get up and I was feeling okay, and actually wanted to listen to a bunch of her songs.

This has been such an emotional rollercoaster.

I know how that is, thats how i am like every other day. All the questions jumbled in my head, and just thinkin about them gets me quite teary. It is hard for me still to listen to 4 songs, concerts and tributes. I find myself mostly listening to her ILTY album as her vocals seem very inspirational and emotional to me.

^^ yeah, I can go days fine, then be sad again..... I feel ya, the ups and downs are making me crazy.

On a side note: I'm watching tv and a Sting concert just ended and now they are airing Phil Collins and I am sitting here wondering why in the
hell have all these Whitney concerts been buried! They never air them, we can't buy them, WHERE are they!! WHH, Classic Whitney so many of
this aired on HBO who is in control of them now, who owns the rights to these? : just needed to vent there for a minute:
