Whitney Houston — Tombstone Now Etched with Her Most Famous Song Lyrics

Exclusive 0711-whitney-houston-grave-tmzWhen you think of Whitney Houston you think … “I Will Always Love You”  — and now you always will, because it”s engraved on her tombstone.

Whitney”s grave at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey was finally given a headstone last week, after sitting vacant since her death in 2011.

The epitaph on the new heart-shaped marker reads: “Whitney E. Houston Aug. 9, 1963 — Feb. 11 2012 … THE VOICE … “I Will Always Love You”.”

Interestingly, while Whitney made “I Will Always Love You” famous in “The Bodyguard” — it was written, and originally performed, by Dolly Parton.

If you”re thinking she should”ve gone with lyrics from “Greatest Love of All” … “Saving All My Love for You” … or “I”m Every Woman” — yeah, she didn”t write those either. 

Whitney is buried next to her father … per her wishes.
