PRINCE I STILL MISS YOU BUT AM SO HAPPY YOU'RE STILL WITH US THROUGH YOUR WORDS, MUSIC AND MEMORIES!
Minnosota MPLS is still sleeping but in EU we're awake. I heard they had his body on TV CNN. They should have warned. Still I looked. And saw... and it's a just a body. Prince was and is so much more than that.

Miss you Prince! You have been a big influence in my life. through thick and thin you have been there. From turbulent teens to Roudy 20's to marriage and kids you have always been there to remind me about life-love-and living to your best. We may never have met but you were my best friend at times. You will always stay in my heart.
Everybody's lookin 4 the ladder, it's in the garage

Until the end of time
Prince was so special and unique. There will never be anyone else like him. Rest in peace, sweet Prince.
In the Burial of the Dead a poet wrote:
“April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.”
Its hard not to share this poetic feeling about month April, a similar sentiment about a month which sometimes covering our lives with painful snow. But you know what is really hard? Trying to avoid that romantic pathos, when one talks about phenomenon known as Prince. This aching heart knows what means when the world loses someone like him, but at the same time it have solace knowing that the Future is here - “Eternity is just one kiss away”. Dont forget, he was a prophet of that everlasting vision... It ain’t over!
still miss him so much.
No More Haters on the Internet.
My belief is that it was meant to be. He served God on earth now must come back to the father. He always blooms paisley's in our hearts.
"My motherfucker's so cool sheep count him."
Dearest Friend- I miss you every day since you passed. You left behind a musical legacy that shall remain forever unsurpassed by anyone. You touched many, many hearts with your music and your incredible life. I pray that you are at peace. I wish you Heaven!

I love you Prince. You have been my musical guru for years and you will never leave my heart and soul. Music and concerts aren't the same without you - you set the bar so damn high❣Thank you for your talent, passion, sacrifices and love. Your music lives on. I wish you Heaven. 💜
"A strong spirit transcends rules." - Prince
My sweet Prince, your music has been in my life for so many years, the one constant in an ever changing world. No day goes past without my purple music....I go into my “Prince” music room and time stands still as you take me on another musical journey and even though you are no longer with us your legacy will live on and grow. Eternal love and peace 💜💜💜
I love him forever and miss him everytime. The music will always be with me.
I miss you so much. I think about you every day. You will forever be my favorite entertainer.
I’ll never forget the moment the news of his passing came to me. It was about an half hour from now, two years ago. Since then things have never been the same. It was the first time I cried being an adult. I have enjoyed the music and concerts on video every day since, as always. But enjoying music as a whole, by others, like I always did, has never been the same and is pretty hard. I have enjoyed the recent anouncements of “new” music by Prince being released, but knowing the man isn’t recording, writing, playing live or just enjoying life somewhere, is still just..... got no words for it.
Man, I miss you and I will always love you, the things you stood for and gave us. So much joy!
Produced, Arranged, Composed & Performed by PRINCE
"Rotterdam, we come to jam!"
I awoke today, and his passing on this date was one of the first things on my mind. What can I say, I miss him and always will. I know he's in the presence of the Lord now, at peace and happier than he's ever been, and I thank God that we had him for the time he was here.........love you Prince!
Woke up this morning, and I could not get NC2U out of my head (Prince version). I'm so sad....Love U & Miss U, darling Prince.
I am so very sorry what happened to you. I'm so sorry you were in so much pain and suffering. Please know that we all love you, more than words can ever say, and we miss you immensely. Please know that we hold no judgment against you. You are not in pain any longer. You are at peace now. Your legacy is your music, and we will cherish that forever. Thank you for blessing all of us with your wit, charm, talents and beautiful music. You inspired so many people and have touched so many people with your music and your beautiful spirit. Rest in God's eternal love.

"With love, honor, and respect for every living thing in the universe, separation ceases, and we all become one being, singing one song." - Prince Roger Nelson (1958-2016)
I remember when Prince use to send us pics of his stage set up via twitter. One pic he sent had a vacuum cleaner still on the stage. I tweeted "who left the vacuum on the stage?". Prince tweeted back " It Morris', he left it". I got tweet BOMB! That was the coolest day!
"I don't make the rules. I just play"
I’m just thankful that he lived and fulfilled his potential. He had an amazing life and he changed my own forever.
"I'm much too hot to be cool"
I hope his beautiful soul found its way back home. Thank you Prince for all the doors you made me see & open.
I love him and miss him. I am so thankful for his music. I have thought of him every day since he passed. I wonder if he understood how much people loved him; I hope that he did. May he and Amiir rest in Heaven with God.

The only tribute I could come up with. Launched it on Prince's birthday in 2016.

After listening to some of Prince's live music today, I felt inspired to write:
You were so full of life,that I can still feel and hear U. So much love U gave that gives us all comfort and peace within.
Honestly, since he passed, it has been extremely hard to listen to his music without crying and feeling so heartbroken. I used to listen to his music almost everyday for 20+ yrs. I'm getting there as Prince wouldn't want any of us to mourn him but celebrate him.
"The fanbase I have now, they're so sophisticated, they almost expect me to do the unexpected." -Prince
RIP Prince Roger Nelson. I will never forget you and what you meant to me. Thank you for being there. My love Is Forever.
Thank U, Prince. I love U and miss U. Rest in peace...
"I like to watch."
It’s hard to believe that someone I never actually knew could have had such a profound impact on my life, but that’s exactly what Prince did. He was as important to me in my youth as a close friend or a relative. I will love him with all my heart until the moment I join him in eternal rest. Thank you, Prince, for making an awkward gay boy of the ‘80s feel like he mattered when nothing else did. You are ever loved and never 4gotten.

"From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks:
Check out The Mountains and the Sea, a Prince podcast by yours truly and my wife. More info at https://www.facebook.com/TMATSPodcast/
I have been playing his music most of the day, it makes me sad to know how much you were suff ering. R.I.P. MY SWEET ONE.
Thank-you for sharing those sweet, heartfelt words!
The accompanying photo is lovely too.
I was watching the moving NC2U video this morning, and it seems to me such a fitting tribute to Prince by the Estate/Warners at this sad time of year.
I greatly appreciate them sharing it with us. I think it’s nice to read that it is ‘trending’ and hopefully introducing some of the younger generations to at least one of Prince’s beautiful songs.
For some reason, watching the NC2U clip made me think of another exquisite song about loss and missing someone you love dearly: https://www.youtube.com/w...42xEFB18n4
Prince was my hero who made me believe in myself. He made the world a better place to live in thanks to his music and artistry. I wish U Heaven, I know he has found another friend.
So honored to have seen him perform live when I was 17. Greatest concert of my life.
With God there is no death.
Some artists can save your life, but that's too trite for him for me. For me he restored my quality of life when my father died and I broke up with my financee in 2004 when Musicology dropped. I always enjoyed him but that kickstarted the whole affair for me. If nothing else, I wanted to live long enough to see what he did next and what he could teach me. Between then and now there's been a lot more complicated mess, to put it gently, and honestly recovering from sexual assault has been that much more healing thanks to him and his message. He taught me to push, not to stop until I go, and I keep pushing. His symbol is on my car. His pin is on my work uniform. He and Bowie and MJ (and so many others oh lord) are always with me, as are my family (my grandmother died on this date too smh - love you H). But I will never love another like I love Prince, and I know he knows.
Hey Jupiter, nothing's been the same.
Prince you will always be loved and never forgotten. As sad as I am I take comfort that you’re no longer in pain. It was your time and God called you home. I’m sure you’re making sweet music up in Heaven. 💜
Paisley Park is in your heart
Prince, for me, the 2nd anniversary has been harder than the 1st. I feel like I have drank a case of you over the last few days and I am emotionally hungover. As for me, I believe in all that was good in you; not denying that you were only human, but choosing to focus on your genuinely amazing virtues and your incredible talent that you shared with all of us. I am forever grateful. 💜
In 1984, I saw Prince for the first time on MTV, "Little Red Corvette". I was mesmerized and wanted to get closer to the TV to really watch him. I was married to a not so nice man. I made the comment, as I was walking to the TV of saying, "That's one sexy man." The next thing I knew, I was on the floor with my ex standing over me. I became a "closet" fan. If my ex was around, I would change the TV or radio station if Prince came on. If he wasn't around, I was turning it up. There was so much music I missed out on, though, due to being a closet fan.
Love you madly, miss you dreadfully. In your immortal words :
" I'll die but I won't go away "
You know Prince wasn't no damn drug addict !
Dear Prince - You have been ever present and insprirational throughout my life. Being an 80's kid, I came to know of you through 'When Doves Cry', when i heard that song, it was like listening to music for the first time.
1985 was a rough year for me. At just 13 my parents were going through some very difficult marital issues and I was beyond devastated. Around The World In a Day was my saviour that whole Summer, I listened to it back-back 5 times every day.
Finally getting to see you live on the Nude tour was magical. I saw most tours subsequently, one night during a 21 nights aftershow - you gave me a high five as i stood front of stage. Man - you are strong. I also got to see a 21 nights main show sitting right next to your assistant, long story, one for the grand-kids.. I felt i was part of the band.
Your music continued to be the soundtrack of my life. I met my wife in a bar and Shhh was playing in the background, Emancipation released the year we got engaged and Holy River was played at our wedding.
My kids love you too. Last week my daughter said she had discovered some new gems, Chelsea Rogers and Another Lonely Christmas.
I know you are hard-working, thoughtful and vested in others, charitable and a game changer. I have followed those values and it has served me good. Beyond family and some key friends, you have been the single biggest influence in my life.
I dont't believe in life/death, i believe we all transition to a new phase of our evolution. While missing your physical being and live shows, I know your spirit is here.
Take care my dear friend, and may God hold you close.
I know you're up there playing with Jimi and all the others. Your electrifying energy pulsed through our hearts on our journeys through life, and in your passing the connection only grows. We love and miss you.
Peace, Love, bilbolives
