Michael Haughton


A Special Message from the Haughton Family:

Very early in the morning on January 16, 1979 Michael and I brought Aaliyah Dana with the blessing of God into the world. It took 15 minutes for her to make her presence known. Michael said “I have a beautiful baby girl”. Thus the sweet name that followed her through life. We took her home soon after and she met the brother that would love her and that she would love for the next 22 years.


Mom, Dad, Ra

When tomorrow starts without me
And I’m not here to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me

I wish you wouldn’t cry
The Way you did today
While thinking of the many things
We did not get to say

I know how much you love me
As much as I love you
Each time that you think of me
I know you will miss me too

When tomorrow starts with out me
Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand

The angel said my place was ready
In heaven far above
And That I would have to leave behind
All those I Dearly Love

But When I walked through Heaven’s Gates
I felt so much at home
When GOD looked down and smiled at me
From his golden throne

He said This Is Eternity
And All I promised you
Today for life on earth is done
But Here it starts a new

I promise no tomorrow
For today will always last
And Since each day’s the exact same way
There is no longing for the past

So When Tomorrow starts without me
Do not think we’re apart
For every time you think of me
Remember I’m right here in your heart

Poem by Elizabeth Doris Fries

(Be sure our princess BabyGirl is thinking that way….)


Tis the season to give thanks and be around family. Many people in the world unfortunately can not be around the loved ones they want to be around. Please hug all of your loved ones and let them know you love them, as tomorrow {not even later tonight} is ever promised. Happy Thanksgiving to the Haughton Family, Aaliyah’s true friends and all Aaliyah fans and their families.

No, that’s her older brother Rashad. The brownskin man (in this picture) behind Rashad is her dad, Michael Haughton.
