(Newser) – The epitaph on Whitney Houston's headstone was written by Dolly Parton, and Houston's fans will immediately understand why. "I will always love you," reads the quote on the bottom of the grave marker, reports AP, a reference to the Parton song that Houston made enormously popular. Houston is buried next to her dad at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey. The headstone also refers to her as "THE VOICE."
