We're sure you saw or heard Kevin Costner's beautiful eulogy at Whitney Houston's funeral.
But what you may not know is that he was this-close to not saying anything!
We all cope in different ways, and Kevy's way was staying silent. It was gonna stay that way too until Whitney's cousin, Dionne Warwick, made a very important phone call.
Kevin explains what changed his mind

Singing legend Dionne Warwick came on Good Morning America this morning to chat about her late cousin and friend, Whitney Houston.
Dionne, who has two sons, admits that:
"She [Whitney] basically was the little girl I never had."
Warwick says that despite rumors Whitney's daughter (Dionne's metaphorical granddaughter), Bobbi Kristina, in very close with her family. She says:
"That's the one thing I love about my family: We are a family, so she has the support that she actually needs."
SO glad to hear Bobbi is leaning on family in this trying time!
She's gonna need lots of help slapping away the vultures now that it's been revealed that Whitney left EVERYTHING to Bobbi K. With that kind of money, right now she can only trust her family!

Whitney Houston's 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina was turned away by Beverly Hills police when she arrived at the Beverly Hilton to see her mother's body.
When Bobbi Kristina showed up on the 4th floor of the hotel, officers informed her that no one was allowed to see the body, which, as you can imagine, made Bobbi extremely upset.
