I’m not sure how to even start this post, but I’ll do my best. So, Prince was found dead in his home at Paisley Park on April 21st, 2016. To be honest with you, when I heard the news, I got the same feeling that I had the day I learned of Michael Jackson’s death…TOTAL DISBELIEF!!! How can this be? How can we live in a world where two of God’s greatest miracles are just…well…GONE?!?!
I was LIVE, on the air when the news came down, but my thoughts began to run wild. I couldn’t gather myself fast enough to keep up with the show. I felt like I had lost a family member…and I didn’t even have a chance to say goodbye. His music was the soundtrack of the courtship between me and my husband of 28-years. How could he not be here anymore? What’s worse…he was to my husband what Michael Jackson was to me. My husband still hasn’t talked about it…he won’t even play his music anymore. Men grieve differently, so I guess I understand how difficult it must be for him. In fact, he can’t even watch Purple Rain on TV…it’s been running like crazy in the days since his passing. I think it’s even harder for him because on our VERY FIRST DATE he took me to see Purple Rain. Funny how life takes you through twists and turns that you can’t even comprehend…at the time…but God has a way of fixing everything. He can fix your heart, your mind and your spirit. He is a mighty God. I hope and pray that if you’re grieving, as we are…that you will look to God for strength through this difficult time. I’ll keep you all in my prayers as well. And please…say a prayer for Prince. He left us with a music legacy that will stand the test of time.
I’ll see you in the PURPLE RAIN,
