Jackson brother’s final public tribute to Michael Jackson

When it came to the Jackson family speaking at the Michael Jackson Memorial Service, it was Jermaine who spoke first;

“I’m lost for words, I was his voice, his backbone. I had his back, so does the family. We thank you very much,”

Jermaine Jackson – brother

Then Marlon Jackson spoke:

“I hurt. I stand here trying to find words of comfort and solace… trying to understand why the lord has taken our brother to return home from such a short visit here on earth. When you left us, a part of me went with you and a part of you will live forever within me, but also… within all of us.

Michael, I will treasure the good times, the fun we had, singing, dancing, laughing. I can remember we would come home from school and grab a bite to eat and we would try to watch ‘The Three Stooges’, and mother would come in and say it was time to go to the recording studio.”

Marlon also said:

“I also remember a time Michael, when I went into the record store and there was this man purchasing a lot of CDs. He was an old gentleman, short afro, buck-crooked teeth and his clothes were rumpled. I walked up behind him and said ‘Michael, what are you doing in this store?’ and he turned to me and said ‘Marlon, how did you know it was me?’ I told him ’You’re my brother, regardless of your makeup. I know your walk, I know your body language, and the shoes did not help. Michael wore the same shoes wherever we went but I guess that was his way of trying to experience what we take for granted.

We would never ever understand what he endured. Not being able to walk across the street without a crowd gathering around him. Being judged, ridiculed, how much pain can one take? Maybe now Michael they will leave you alone.

Michael I love you, I will miss when we said our goodbyes. I would hug you and say I love you and your response was ‘I love you more’.

You have finished your work here on earth and the lord has called you to come home to him… I have one request Michael, I would like for you to give our brother, my twin brother, Brandon, a hug from me. I love you Michael and I’ll miss you.”

The family’s speech was completed by Michael’s daughter Paris:

  1. My dear Michael
    I still can’t believe that you are no more in this world to which you have given so much.
    Every times Ilisten your songs or see any your videoclip or all pictures of you, I begin to cry.
    You’re so sweet, tender, so sensitive and timid and I always adore you for this your way of being, for your great umanity.
    You have supported too much sufferings during your life, trying a little of happyness as me. Sometimes I think we were twin souls, what a pity that I never meet you in this life to love us even if as good friends.
    Wwith your music you had given in this world an only treasure, above all with the unlucky and ill children , I love every children of he world as you loved them.
    For me you have been absolutely the ONE, never more will born another artist as you. With you is gone the love of my heart, the talent you had for everything and in this moment, while I’m writing to you I listen your songs.
    Any Italian magazine write and ipotize that you are not death , that this is a finction for the public that has stressed your life. If this is real I could be happy, even if I could never more to see you, but if this is the truth I hope that you will come into my dreams, while I’m sleeping and talk to me, I’m praying you every day, I pray that you, my sweet love, can talk to me from the heaven, with God. That is your best destination ‘cause you were, are and will be a sweet Angel, a gift of God for the world, maybe now you wil can find the peace that you have wished in your life.
    I hope that anytimes I will come in America, I would like to visit Neverland, your great wonderful miracle, a miracle that shows your biggest love for the children, your infinite sensitivity. I’ve never beloved to that terrible slanders about the children. You never cannot to do nothing of that kind, you haveprotected and loved that children, you were and will be their keeper angel for ever, ‘cause your love will arrive them from that special place that is the heaven.
    News said that your personal doctor has given you that dangerous drug, I hope that he wll pay much bitterly, because he has pull away a great wonderful “boy”, our special and fantastic Peter Pan, as you always told of you.
    I could say you a lot of words and thinking, but they couldn’t express all my pain and sadness. All my dreams go on with you together my love.
    You will always be THE ONE and I hope, some day, when I’ll leave this world, to meet you and recover this lost time.


  2. I think that if our beloved Michael could be here would be happy for the love showed by all his fans.
    Both during his living and after his death it has been told a lot of calumnies, but I’m asking my-self: Is it so important if he was gay? Is it so terrible his great love for all Earth’s children?
    I can’t believe that is possible to have so low respect for a man who has given all his love and aid for all that people that hasn’t nothing? That is important was his heart, his sweetness, tenderness, and his enormous generosity.
    I think that it won’t exist never more, a man as him in the world. he was the ONE and will be it for ever.
    He has been a wonderful and fantastic artist, but above all he has been a great wonderful man., Don’t forget it!!! It’s no right.
    During his life he has had success, fame, fortune, but he was alone, just a few of his friends has really loved and helped. He was so timid, sensitive, so fragile, he need love, comprehension, support and I’m convinced that probably he coulb be still here with us if he had had all this.
    There a lot of thought in my mind, but maybe they are too much, I just hope that now he can really rest in peace, I always think to him and I cry, I can’t still believe that he is no more here. I sing his songs, as I can ’cause I’m not a singer, but when I listen his songs, I sing it with an hope: I would like if he could listen me and know that I sing to him with all my heart, I try to talk to him and imagine that he can hear me.
    Probably I’m crazy and maybe It’s the truth, but I like thinking this to feel him near to me.
    Sometines I hope to have a sign from him, who knows….but I can say that I’ve seen him in two of my dreams, but everything was confuse…
    I just say that I hope with all my heart e with all my love that he is happy now, in the heaven, with angels, ’cause he has been a sweet angel on the Earth and now he will can play and enjoy with all angels and children, keeping the hands among them.
    This is my best wish for him, for my sweet Michael.
    I love you Michael and I’ll bring you in my heart for ever.
    Good Bye Michael. I hope to meet you in the Heaven when will arrive my moment.
    I’m sorry if there will be any mistakes in words, verbs or other in English languages, but I think that the concept is very clear.
