Today in the Newark newspaper is Mr. Houston's death notice.
I was surprised to learn that Whitney has a Step-sister (Alana)
and a Step-brother(John Houston). The funeral is Friday.

Good job on getting the scoop! Now I wonder what the media will do.

This was a total shock to me,because Whitney never said anything
about this. Well here it is:
John Russell Houston Jr.

HOUSTON - On Feb. 2, 2003, John Russell Jr., of Fort Lee, N.J., made his transition. Born in Trenton, N.J., migrated to Newark at an early age.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara Peggy Houston, and their daughter, Alana, and from his former union with Cissy Houston, his sons, Gary (Pat), Michael (Donna) and daughter, Whitney (Bobby), and from the former union with Elsie Hamilton his eldest son, John Russell Houston III (Barbara), his eight grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren, also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and many many friends. A celebration of his life will be held Friday 11 a.m. at St. James A.M.E. Church, 588 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd., Newark. Interment to follow at the Fairview Cemetery, Westfield, N.J.

I like the phrase, "made his transition."

I will say I spent it with you.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 06-02-03 AT 09:48 PM (EST)]Is he has another daughter, doesn't that make her younger than Whitney? And when John did that interview with CJ, didn't they say that Whitney was his youngest and only daughter? And since I never heard Whitney acknowledge the other two, I guess it is safe to say that they are not close to her. I wonder why Cissy did not mention this in her book. Or is Alana Peggy's daughter from another relationship? I always thought he had a child before meeting Cissy because he was almost 40 when they met. And I hope these kids continue to keep a low profile and don't try to make a few bucks.
I love LOVE!

It's confusing, but that blurb likely came from a family representative. Well, there's no telling if Alana is his child or if she was born earlier. I have no idea.

Yeah it is pretty confusing. But I doubt John pulled a Tony Randall.
