My children are my whole life.

Cissy Houston

I trust in God, and His ways are not our ways. So we have to go with that, and there’s nothing I can do about that.

Cissy Houston

I’m very proud of my daughter. She accomplished a whole lot in the short time that she had here… she was a very wonderful person.

Cissy Houston

I am so grateful to God for giving me the gift of 48 years with my daughter. And I accept that He knew when it was time to take her.

You can’t treat your voice badly and expect it to stay around.
