Whitney Houston fans assemble memorial outside Beverly Hilton
Fans have begun assembling a makeshift memorial of flowers, candles and notes for Whitney Houston outside the Beverly Hilton, where the pop star died Saturday.
"Bittersweet memories that is all we will take us," read one note. "We will always LOVE you."
One woman drove by, turning onto Santa Monica Boulevard from Wilshire Boulevard, asking a reporter on the street corner to add a bouquet to the mix. Another woman snapped a photo with her iPhone on the way to the bus stop.
"Oh there's my bus, I'm always late," she said, running to the stop. "Just hope I'm not late to heaven."
Another fan, Garett Gutierrez, brought his favorite Houston album to the site to place it at the memorial and take a photo of it there.
"I listen to it everyday," he said. "I've been a fan since way back."
