What a wonderful funeral for Whitney Houston. The outpouring of love and the testimonies of mourners, along with the beautiful musical tributes touched me deeply. However, I am a bit troubled that Whitney’s family did not go out of their way to embrace Bobby and put aside all of their past hurts and feelings at least until Whitney was buried. With all the remarks and commentary regarding how they did not want to focus on her struggles and shortcomings, and with all the talk of God’s love and grace, they should have acknowledged the imperfect Bobby as Bobbi Kristina’s father and the one-time love of Whitney’s life. In spite of her family, Whitney LOVED him and so does his daughter. He deserves the same grace and prayers as those requested for Whitney. His pain and grief are his personal crosses to bear but remember the same people who express how sad it was for Whitney not to have had people step in and help her are doing the same for Bobby. And in a place of worship at that! Shame on them all. It’s unfortunate that all of the biblical references and all of the tributes did not acknowledge that relationship. Yes,this was not about Bobby or making him feel welcome. It was about his daughter losing a mother, and him losing his ex-wife. I know her mother and family are in pain but there is no excuse for ignoring or blaming him. If they loved Whitney then they knew she loved him and so does their daughter. Practice what you preach, people!
