Gladys Knight is perfect. She discovered the Jackson 5. I heard Aretha was going to sing. Also heard Diana Ross would be there along with Corey Feldman. I wonder if his dear Elizabeth will attend.

MICHAEL
If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
and the rain fall softly on your fields.
And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of his hand

MICHAEL you came into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same.

Your fans will never let you fade Away.

Wow, he is actually dead. I just cannot accept that he is no longer here with us! He is the immortal,invincible being of my childhood. He is my childhood. I'm 20, MJ and his music has been apart of my life since I was born into this world! How can Michael Jackson be dead? How is that even possible?! Why hasn't the world exploded or something? I just cannot begin to imagine a world with Michael Jackson in it! I miss him so much.

Who the heck is James Walker? He is on Cnn talking about all the drug addicts. Isn't he the guy that runs a half way house?

Gladys musta missed her appointment at Dr. Hoefflin's. She still has her original nose. She still can sing though.

I thought Jermy was going to announce his star studded cast for Vienna today.
