One of the most touching moments during Whitney Houston‘s funeral yesterday was Kevin Costner‘s eulogy. Seen here leaving LAX on February 17 with his wife, Whitney’s Bodyguard co-star paid a heartfelt tribute to her.

“I asked her why she did it, and she said I just wanted to look my best. I asked her to trust me, and she said she would,” Costner said. “A half hour later she went back to do her screen test and the studio fell in love with her…Whitney, you weren’t just good enough, you were great.

“To you, Bobbi Kristina, and to all those young girls who are dreaming that dream, thinking that maybe they aren’t good enough, I think Whitney would tell you, guard your bodies. And guard the precious miracle of your own life. Then sing your hearts out.

Holding back tears, and pausing at the end of his speech, Costner concluded, “Off you go Whitney, off you go. Escorted by an army of angels to your heavenly Father. When you sing before him, don’t you worry. You’ll be good enough.”
