Dearest Aaliyah,

Dearest Aaliyah,

"...I won't let no one come & take your place..."

You are one of the best & if anyone argues otherwise,
they'll feel the front & back of my hand across their right & left cheeks.
I have owned every one of your CDs, taught myself damn near all of your dance moves & performed numerous routines to your music.

Besides all the obvious favorites, I LOVE "John Blaze" ft. Missy Elliott.

Also, while crusing the net, I came across a live performance of you on the
Rosie O'Donell show singing "Journey to the Past"

&& one of my FAVORITES joints ever, "One in a Million" on Nickelodeon's All That.

You are seriously missed babygirl. R.I.P.
