Bio and Links
Bio Photo I came to love Michael in 1972 after a letter writing assignment in 2nd grade, he wrote back and from them on, it was always Michael everything...met him 17 times, seen 12 shows and can not believe he is gone..Feels like a big piece of me is gone too. I have gone to visit Michael every week since his passing, first at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills until the media messed that up then every week since the second week in Sept 2009 at Forest Lawn Glendale. This summer planning a big one year celebration tribute to remember him and celebrate his life. Michael's legacy will live on forever if we keep him always in our hearts as he did us.

RE: Hello April
Hello April,
I know you are very-very busy planning. The convention is going to be GREAT. I have been keeping up with the latest on the Make a Better World Foundation... "It's all for love. L.O.V.E." site. The King of Pop will be smiling down from Heaven upon his Soldiers L.O.V.E. I think about his legacy, and I still find it hard to accept he is gone.

I'm glad you got gifts for the kids, and roses for Kathryn. I think about her often. The pain of losing a child, my heartbreaks for her. When you got to pay respects to the King of Pop, is it difficult? As far as security? I'm really hoping to attend the convention in June. My job is a little hectic, to say the least. You mention, you saw the long version, of the We Are The World Haiti, tribute, is that one available on DVD? Take care and be blessed.

"It's all for L.O.V.E."

Hello April
Hello April,
Hope all is well with you. What did you think of the We Are he World remake? I did not get a chance to see it. Do you know who is benefitting off the We Are The World remake? I really hope that all the proceeds go to The King of Pop's favorite charities and his beloved children. "We Are The World" was a spontaneous magical moment in music history. I know we will ever see again in our lifetime. Yes all the stars came together. However The King of Pop shined the brightest...genuine and heartfelt. It came from his heart.

Soldier of L.O.V.E.
Hello April,
Hope all is well, I'm going to add the group to my FB page. I'm impressed...love what the foundation is all about. The King of Pop, I'm sure is smiling down on his "Soldiers of L.O.V.E You are spot on, his kid are well spoken and simply beautiful. If you believed everything you "read" the media would have you believing his children were "weirdoes" The King of Pop is a great Dad, and he was protecting his children from this cold-cruel world as much as he could. Do you blame him? Cruel people who hate what they don't understand. Take care my friend. Will be in touch.

RE: The (King of Pop)
Hello April,
I was talking about the Make A Better World Foundation site. It is not linked to FB? correct? The site is awesome, I love it. The Grammy's did The King of Pop tribute towards the end of the show. I still have my tissue-- I'm drained...have a good evening. Glad I met you. Will be in touch.

RE: The (King of Pop)
Hello April,
I joined the group. It is an awesome site. Something The King of Pop I know is proud of. Still trying to navigate my way around the site. We all need to take a look at the "Man in the Mirror" and give a little bit more of ourselves to those in need. It's all for L.O.V.E. is the site linked to Face Book? I will e-mail your personal e-mail ref MJ concerts (if you don't mind). I'm a little emotional right now. They just showed the tribute to the King of Pop. His children spoke on his behalf....

Hello April

Hello April,
That is very comforting to know that he knew his true fans never stopped loving him. I'm glad he felt that before he passed. After everything he went through, I could only imagine his anxiety about how his fans would react to him. However, nothing changed. The excitement of that announcement of the "This Is It Tour" gives me chills. What could have been....makes sad. I have yet to see The "This Is It". I bought the CD, however it remains unopened. I'm just not ready to say good-bye. I grew up on anything and everything Motown. The Jackson 5 were one of my favorite groups. My older Aunties had "The Jackson 5 Mania" (mainly Michael Jackson mania). They would tell me stories of seeing them perform at the Regal Theater in Chicago along with other Motown acts. Of course, Michael always stood out, his stage presence, his aurora lit up the Regal Theater in Chicago. Growing up I always enjoyed hearing their stories of The Jackson 5. When Michael went solo, The Off The Wall album is one of my favorites. It Brings me back to a time when all was right in my world...at the skating rink, having a great time rolling skating backwards to "Off The Wall" I was always fearful of rolling skating backward. However, when Off The Wall came on, I felt I could do anything and I did. Good memories. When MJ sings and dances he is one with the music..."Magic" and you felt it in your heart. Because it came from his heart. No other artist will ever come close. I never got a chance to see The King of Pop tour, I would have loved to have got and opportunity to have seen his "Bad' tour. However, when I was a little girl, I did get to see the The Jacksons perform for free at a park, I heard the music but did not get to see them up close...it was madness (Michael Mania).

The King of Pop will still be an inspiration to many. For those who doubted and brought him great sadness. People don't like what they don't understand. I feel the King of Pop was a child like, because he never had a childhood. He is a musical genius (no doubt). The best that ever did it. I remember watching the Motown 25 special when he came out into his own, so confident, he moonwalked across that stage, did his signature hat toss. And that was the beginning of "The Pepsi Generation" Michael Mania for MY generation. Michael Jackson made MTV-- his videos, he was such a forward thinker and innovator a perfectionist. However, he was also a humanitarian, that cared deeply for the forgotten ones. For example "We Are The World" and I could go on and on. He was human. However, he will always be my "Magic" his music lives on. When I have bad days, I listen to his music, sometimes I dance, sometimes I cry.

My son is only seven and he loves Smooth Criminal, he knows all the lyrics and loves the video. The King of Pop Legacy will live on forever. His true fans will always love and remember him.

Do yo still have the letters from him? That is really heartwarming. To know he took time out to write back. Take care and "Keep The Magic" going

Hello..April
Hello April,
You are so blessed to have gotten to meet the King of Pop. Michael Jackson has been a part of my life forever. The King of Pop is "The Sound Track to my life. However, like you said, we have to keep his legacy alive. The King of Pop...A LEGEND. He set bar so high for other artist. He was a very special, kind and compassionate soul...If only he knew how much the world loves and misses him. Heart-break all over the world.
