Posted:Egh.. Wow.. This is huge.. I cannot really think of a musical artist that did as much as he did, as far as changing music and dance as we know it.. Very talented man; and such a heart-breaking story.. Hope he rests well..

With happiness,

John

Posted:Just how I end every message. Shows how despite the bad times there's still more hope for everything else, and in the good times, to keep that mentality. However, there's nothing happy about this. If it brings everyone else contentment, I'll change it.

Posted:after that explanation it's okay with me.

Some ppl might say, that death should not be morned, but celebrated... as it ends the suffering... so it might be a reason for happiness.

I was only confused for a moment...

However, only now my thoughts are with the family and his parents, who have to bury a child...

Posted:My feelings exactly. I couldn't even begin to wonder how that feels.. His music and work shall live on though. That's something that can't be taken from his family.. Or anyone for that matter.

With happiness,

John

Posted:just a thought flashing through my mind when reading - in all that controversy about his relationship to children during the latter years, maybe it would be a good idea to support childrens organisations with some of the royalty of his music.

I'm sure he would have wanted it.

Fare thee well, Michael, there never has been quite the same level of performance from a singer/dancer to date.
