Obviously Michael's birthday means something bittersweet
and personal to me.
I just wish he were here for me to wish
him ‘Happy Birthday' .
I wish he were here to send our mother, Patricia, flowers as he always did on his birthday – to thank her for giving him life.
I wish he were here to hear his little daughter, Tiger Lily, wish
him a happy birthday.
Michael should be with his little child. Michael should be on
the next phase of his career even if that meant a quiet life
out of the spotlight.
Michael should be here with us.
I searched through the dictionary; there are no words that can adequately express my sadness and loss at not being able to put my arms around you today and tell you how much I love you.
Rest in peace Sweet Brother, I feel you everywhere and I trust
as she grows, she will also feel your presence.
