LUTHER VANDROSS IS MY DAD'S FIRST COUSIN. HE WAS A VERY SPECIAL PERSON. HIS MOTHER WHO IS OUR GREAT AUNT IS ALSO A SPECIAL PERSON SHE OUTLIVED ALL OF HER CHILDREN AND HER HUSBAND. LUTHER'S FATHER DIED WHEN HE WAS ONLY EIGHT YEARS OLD... AT LEAST NOW HE CAN DANCE WITH HIS FATHER AGAIN....

I wish there was a way to tell Mrs. Vandross how much her son's music means to me. "Dance with My Father" is a tremendously touching song - brings tears to my eyes each time I hear it and think of my father. I will never forget how his music has reached in and touched my soul!
Thank you, Luther....May God Bless You forever more.
This is an incredibly powerfully emotional song that you can't help but cry listening to it.Especially, if you've lost your father.

I lost my oldest son almost two years ago. This in itself is something a parent can never ever recover from. I know what Luther's Mom feels like and how it just hurts so bad. I loved my son very much and he is so missed.
Luther's music has always given me hope and made me feel up. His music helped get me through a lot of grief and sadness this past 18 months.
I will always be grateful to him and our Lord for allowing this wonderful man and singer to be with us. I hope he has met my son because they are both up there!

I don't know what performer can touch my heart like Luther did.I'm very very sad since he passed away. I cann't describe what I feel; in french, we say : "je ressens comme un vide" since he is untimely gone.I'll love always and forever. Enjoy your rest, you deserve it.
I hope mother Vandross is doing well, god bless her.

Luther Vandross was one of the best singers I have ever heard. His talent was definitely a gift from above. Someone sometime will come along who will be just as good,but no one will take his place.

It's every Parent's (Mom and Dad) prayer that they be buried by children and not the opposite. I know how hard it is for you Momma Vandross. But I know one thing... You are very blessed to have had Luther (a son so carring for his dear momma). I always listen to his songs. And ahen I listen to Dance With My Father... I visualize his message. You were blessed with love from the most high. We are all still reaping a share of your blessing. I am very happy Luther was here and sad he left so soon. I will remain a big fan of Mr. Luther Vandross. I love you.

I miss Luther like I would miss my heart if it were taken from my body. He just made me feel alive. I had very low self esteem. I started listening to Luther's song, "It's All About You", 24/7 literally. I believed he was singing directly to me. Soon after people started telling me how pretty I am and how young I look. I know this may sound silly, but I attribute the compliments to Luther because I started believing in the words that he sang and changed my attitude about me. I am now listening to his song, "It's All the Way Love." I am feeling more sensuous and more like a lady.

Luther thank you for ministering to me through your music. I am so glad that God leant you to us even though it was for just a brief moment in time, I'm still grateful. Once I get to heaven, I am going to find you and thank you spiritually.

I will love you forever and ever, until Jesus comes for me.

how you doing today? Similar to your case. i suffered from diabetes and taking pills 8 years before. Drugs that taken can only control our blood sugar rather than decrease it. I can understand how hard you have try.
i start taking natural treatment from last year.(information: http://heal.741.com ). after consuming continuously for 3 months, my diabetes almost cure. It helps me a lot in not only decrease my blood glucose but also stronger my cells. i turn my new life. It is worthwhile to try it. It helps me and i would like to share it with you.
Good day, good life.
