I remember Michael very well. I grew with and his family not personal but on TV. The Jackson Five in everybody home. I miss very much. When he first died I just cried my heart out. My kids looking at me like mom you didn't know him. But I did know him. I remember him and his brothers on the Ed Sullivan show Apollo and American Bandstands. That was long time ago.Michael Jackson is like our Elvis Prestly. He will be missed. Love him and his family.

Everything Michael did was memorable. Some people didn't like a lot of it, but that doesn't matter. Michael was a man in the mirror looking at his world making changes and doing his best to make a difference. RIP Michael. Now you will see how many people truly loved you, myself included.

jackie July 07, 2009 | 9:23 AM

Hannah July 06, 2009 | 4:04 PM

I can't believe he's dead!!! Do you think he wanted to die because he died $400,000,000 in debt???

angee205 July 05, 2009 | 3:35 PM

i just heard on tv that one caller said that elvis was and always will be the king of rock and roll, well yes he will but Micheal was the King of Pop, and always will be. Elvis and the Beatles have not been inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice(2), once with his brothers and once by himself. Don't hate!!!!! Elvis and the beatles did not pave the way for micheal, micheal reached people all over the world. Elvis touched just the white people and so did the beatles, micheal is worldwide nobody can touch micheal. RIP MJJ

Its sad that I forgot how much I really loved his songs until he was gone. He is such an interesting perrson. I feel sad that I will never be aable to see him ever again. I had my chances before but I never thought aabout going to see him. It makes me think about other things......... maybe I could lose an older brother of mine who is not in the best of health. he doesn't take care of himselp and is not well. I can lose my dad anytime because he is 79...... life can be over at anytime for anyone. i will try to treat them better and to spend more time with them. God be with you, Michael. Thank you for bringing so much joy and excitement to my life. You are really gifted. You were the victim of people's greed. I am glad you will not have to suffer anymore. Be happy in heaven.

My name is Jermaine and I just want to say to his family that am sure Michael Jackson is looking over you. I hope that his kids stay with the family that they knew all their live, Janet Jackson should take care of them. Michael was and will always be a prodigy in music and dance, none else will ever be what michael was. His music touch my heart so deeply, it was like feeling what he felt in his songs the moment he wrote them. He is an icon that will trancends death, his music will live on in his die heart fans, the ones who belive in him through his troubles when he was alive and even in death. I am proud to say that I am one. Michael we will miss you more than words can say, we love you, I love you. May you finally have the peace that you search for in life and the respect that some failed to give you. To his family May god bless you through your time of sorrow. You have his fans surport and prays. God bless Michael Jackson and his entier family.
