RIP Michael

Michael Jackson’s memorial service is today.  This is such a sad time for so many.  Michael was, undoubtedly, one of the very best performers ever to grace this planet.  I remember the first time I saw the Jackson 5.  I was lying on my parents bed with my sister watching the Ed Sullivan show.  I was maybe 7 or 8 at the time.  It was the Jackson 5’s debut.  I was a fan from that moment on.  Although Michael has had, so it would seem, a somewhat tortured and controversial personal life, I choose to remember him for the great gifted  entertainer he was and for the giving humanitarian he was.  I truly hope Michael finds peace and healing wherever he is right now.  May you rest in peace Michael.
