    Does anyone know where I can watch it online now it's finished? We had to go out mid-way for My sister's Birthday.

    I wasn't sure whether to post this or not but i thought some of you may find it quite interesting. I in no way intend it to be in bad taste, if anybody finds it so just ask me or a moderator to delete it. Honestly please just ask me and I will delete it, I don't want anyone to be in the slightest bit offended :hug2:

    "Michael Jackson signed his last will on 7-7-02, seven years to the day he will be memorialized and buried. Michael was the 7th in a family of 9 kids......."

    and he died on 25th - those numbers added together equal 7

    I know it sounds weird but after watching the memorial I'm sitting here thinking I need to go to bed but I don't want to leave this day behind if you know what i mean.

    It's like now the memorial is over that's it. I know he's not being buried yet but that's it, no more.

    It was very strange for me. It was almost like I was watching a concert..like a tribute kind of thing..and then I would look down and see the casket. I had a "wow..he is gone" moment. Very sad, but a wonderful memorial service.

    Well I have seen bits and pieces. I would have been living in a cave not to. The part where his brother Marlon and his daughter spoke broke me up. That was just too private a moment for me to have watched.

    Now I hope he can rest in peace.

    That's how l felt Johnie. I thought Berry Gordy and Rev Al words were just perfect. The Motown family were out in force and rightly so they had known him as man and boy.

    they so were weren't they......

    each and every person up there spoke with conviction, they were so loyal to him and it was fantastic to see and hear him being spoken about in that way, given all the bad things that have said about him in the past.

    It was Brooke Shields, Jermaine Jackson and his brave little daughter Paris though that did me in - you could see Brooke visibly shaking and my heart went out to her, Jermaine....i don't know how he did that and his daughter of course, what can I say but may (some of) the world treat her and her brothers with the respect they never gave their Father. :hug2:

    The newspapers seem to be slating that Paris said what she did. To me it looked like Paris wispered in her Aunts ear and then they put the microphone down. For everything they have said about Michael you can see that he was devoted to his children and visa versa. I just hope they have a great upbringing and do not end up like their father. But looking at the brothers they all seem very level headed and will make sure that they are well looked after.

    for goodness sake, why on earth would they slate an 11 yr old child for telling people how much she loved her Father?

    I watched this last night and his family done him proud. Paris finished me off, what a brave young girl. I just hope it brought home to many that at the end of the day he was a daddy and there are 3 children now fatherless. Did anyone think how much Blanket is like his daddy.

    exactly Michelle.

    He was their son, brother, father, cousin - and he and they should have the same respect anyone else is given when they lose a member of their family.

    At the end of the day those poor children have lost their Daddy and he can never, ever be replaced. People should just show them some compassion....please.
