Michael Joseph Jackson 1958-2009.
It was reported today that legendary pop star Michael Jackson passed away at 50 years of age. The cause is believed to be cardiac arrest. I have put this on my blog because many years ago when the Jackson family came to California I met them during those first few days before the fame of the Jackson 5. I babysat for the two youngest Jackson’s on 2 occasions. I didn’t get to know them and I didn’t know why they were in Hollywood and I didn’t ask. I just thought they were a nice family and that is how I choose to remember Michael Jackson, a nice boy with a nice family.
There will always be unanswered questions and controversy about his personal life but I believe he will be remembered more for his music and his undeniable talent. I send my sympathies to the Jackson family for their loss. The king of pop is gone and we will miss his talent and wonder what he might still have created but he has left us his legacy of music and dancing, 2 pearls beyond compare. We will not see his like again.
