As we stumble toward our 5th year without Michael, I find myself researching all over again, not that I have ever stopped.
I have read many, many articles, blogs, watched many videos, had many discussions since Michael's passing.
However, browsing through my Bookmarks/Favorites, there are tributes from people who knew or worked with Michael, I would like to share.
I will be adding to this page as time permits.

Chris Yandek writes an interesting article on Michael's contribution to the music industry, and his interview with Cory Rooney and Chris Apostle.
You can read and also listen to the interview at: http://www.cyinterview.com/2009/07/industry-bigs-music-michael/
** What a shame this article has now been removed **
All throughout history there have been people who have made a profound impact on the world. Michael Jackson is one person, who despite his controversial life, and whether you love him or hate him, will leave a lasting impact on those he helped and inspired.
He will be remembered for his giving to those less fortunate, the sick, homeless and uneducated.
He will be remembered for his environmental fight for the earth, his giving in times of natural disaster.
He will be remembered for his love of our future, the children of this earth.
Michael Jackson as this video says, was the complete package. The King of Hearts in many nations around the globe.
A person able to speak with any leader of any country and give to their hospitals, orphanages and schools.
A person who used his wealth to help others.
His legacy will live on long after all the lies and accusations he had to suffer.
He is and always will be the King of Pop and a great entertainer.
I cannot think of anyone else in the last 50 years who has made such an impact.
Michael Jackson was sent by God to teach us what it is to be human.
Michael Jackson : A Black Man's Dream

"Perhaps it is some people are not determined too long to be here with us on Earth.
Maybe some are just passing through,
or they simply live their lives more quickly than the rest of us,
they do not need one hundred years to stay down here,
to get everything done,
... they make it in no time.
Some people come into our lives by only briefly,
to bring us something, a gift,
a helpa lesson that we need right now,
anything and that is why they come to us
... only one jump, so to speak.
He has taught you something about love, about giving,
how someone can be important,
... that was a gift for you.
He taught you everything and then he's gone again.
Maybe he did not stay longer for he has given his gift
and then he was free to travel further ...
... because he was a very special soul,
... but the gift to you stays forever. "
We miss you so much Michael ♥

MICHAEL.. ein ENGEL von Gott gesandt.. ♥
"Vielleicht ist es manchen Menschen nicht bestimmt,
lange hier bei uns auf der Erde zu sein.
Vielleicht sind manche nur auf der Durchreise,
oder sie leben ihr Leben einfach schneller als wir anderen,
sie brauchen gar nicht hundert Jahre hier unten zu bleiben,
um alles zu erledigen,
... sie schaffen es im Handumdrehen.
Manche Menschen kommen in unser Leben nur kurz vorbei,
um uns etwas zu bringen, ein Geschenk, eine Hilfe,
eine Lektion, die wir gerade brauchen, irgendetwas,
und das ist der Grund, warum sie zu uns kommen,
... nur auf einen Sprung sozusagen.
Er hat dir etwas beigebracht, Ã¼ber die Liebe, Ã¼ber das Geben,
darÃ¼ber, wie wichtig jemand sein kann,
... das war ein Geschenk fÃ¼r dich.
Er hat dir alles beigebracht
und dann ist er wieder gegangen.
Vielleicht musste er nicht lÃ¤nger bleiben,
denn er hat sein Geschenk abgegeben
und dann war er frei, weiterzureisen...
... weil er eine ganz besondere Seele war,
... aber das Geschenk bleibt dir fÃ¼r immer."
Du fehlst uns so sehr Michael ♥
