Just a few days after Michael Jackson died, his family came together to thank fans and the public for their overwhelming support.
In a statement released on Saturday, June 27, the family said: “In one of the darkest moments of our lives we find it hard to find the words appropriate to this sudden tragedy we all had to encounter. Our beloved son, brother and father of three children has gone so unexpectedly, in such a tragic way and much too soon. It leaves us, his family, speechless and devastated to a point, where communication with the outside world seems almost impossible at times.”
The statement continued by saying, “We miss Michael endlessly; our pain cannot be described in words. But Michael would not want us to give up now. So we want to thank all of his faithful supporters and loyal fans worldwide, you, who Michael loved so much. Please do not despair, because Michael will continue to live on in each and every one of you. Continue to spread his message, because that is what he would want you to do. Carry on, so his legacy will live forever.”
On Monday, June 29, Michael Jackson’s mother asked a Superior Court judge to name her the sole administrator of her late son’s estate so she can ensure that the King of Pop’s three children are its beneficiaries. The judge granted her request to assume temporary guardianship of the children but did not immediately rule on her request to administer their estate.
Two hearings will be schedule on July 6 and August 3.
The king of Pop funeral is still being planned.
