I think this is a great picture. It really shows some real emotion behind what Whitney and that moment meant to us. Her love bringing people together as one to remember her life and legacy. It's a beautiful thing. USA Today say us, other fans saw us, and more importantly Whitney saw us. She was there among us.

Where were you guys? I got to Jay and Sussex around 11:15 and I did not see you. I texted and called you. Ended up sticking around for an hour, watching it on Justin.TV on my phone then head back home to see the rest of it

You did? I didn't get a call from you. I thought you just changed your mind about coming, Awh man, I would have loved to have met you! We were out there on Sussex on the opposite side of the church watching everything with the other fans. We left a little before 12 to go back to our hotel to watch the service on the TV.

Yea! I texted a couple of times and called and got your voicemail, but I guess service was so-so in Newark. I was there. I couldn't come at first because I was very sick and was told to rest and stay indoors, but woek up feeling much better that morning so I put on extra warm clothes and came over.

It was still good though, I tried to remain outside the scopes of the camera though I looked like a mess, was counting on my shades to cover the red eyes but they BROKE in half! :-(

You're right! And I'm beyond proud to be photographed with my brother on that day! I'm just always so shy about stuff

It is, you can really see the emotion. Maybe it's a good thing I wasn't there, I wouldn't have been so composed.

I am so thankful I remembered to pick up pair of sunglasses! I hid behind those things!

As CeCe said to Whitney before their duet @ '95 Vh1 Honors: Don't worry, you're beautiful.

This pic also shows visually some of the frustration I had with the masses on Saturday. You saw some people there for Whitney and to remember her life and moved by emotion, and some who were there just to spectate, be on TV or watch the who's who list of people come in and out of the church. Everyone there wasn't there for Whitney.

Unfortunately, Terrence, that's always the case in such high-profile events. It was the same with Michael Jackson.

Couldn't have said it better. After seeing the true mourning going on the night before I just didn't let it enter my head that it would be that way.
