Michael was a special person. Not because he had a fantastic singing voice, not because he could move on stage and take you for a ride of a lifetime and mesmerize you with one song; though this was true, there were other special qualities about Michael that those of us who knew him on a personal level are feeling blessed to have known him, blessed to have those memories.
November is a tough month for all of us who loved Michael. But I believe that Michael would want us to rejoice in his accomplishments, his successes. He would want us to continue to enjoy his music and to know in our hearts that he had a wonderful life. He lived every possible moment with joy. He did exactly what he wanted to do - conquer the world with his music.
Wherever you are, we love you Michael.
