Rest in heavenly paradise Mr. Haughton.
It’s sad to know that my favorite singer’s father passes away on my birthday.
You as well as your
beloved daughter will be truly missed. Thank you for being there for your
daughter through her ups and downs. There are many tremendous father figures in
this world and you definitely were one of them. May your soul rest peacefully surrounded by God’s warmth and love.
Please keep Rashad and Diane in your thoughts and prayers today.
A beautiful picture That Diane had the kidness to share with us, fans, years ago. I love Diane’s writting on the top left of the picture <3! It reminds me that her parents always called her BabyGirl or Lili…
Have you already seen such a beauty?! She was Diane’s twin
My grandmother was such an important figure in my upbringing. Through her I learned about the need to put maximum effort, to strive and to treat others as you would like to be treated. It’s one thing being a modern girl and being street, but we all got to have our links with the past.~ Aaliyah, 2001
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.
