I think Michael would have been so proud of his adorable kids today...as well as his family and fans. Today's memorial service was beyond beautiful. Sad yet uplifting. Emotional yet encouraging. Below are pics from Michael's memorable memorial from earlier today. I enjoyed every minute of it. But it's still so hard for me to accept the fact that he's gone because he has literally been a part of my entire life. Rest in peace, Michael.

But the coup de grace came during Paris' impromptu speech from the stage surrounded by the Jackson family. “I just want to say ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you can ever imagine. And I just want to say I love him so much,” she said through tears. Her aunts Janet Jackson and Rebbie then took her into her arms for a hug before the entire Jackson family then left the stage, closing the service that lasted more than two hours. I'm still trying to understand how Janet, Rebbie and LaToya were able to contain themselves after Paris spoke. She was indeed her daddy's little girl.

The moving tribute was especially startling because it marked one of the first times Michael's daughter has ever been heard publicly. Something else I want to add: we all know that Katherine only has temporary custody of her grandchildren for now. It's also been reported that Debbie Rowe (the mother of the two oldest kids) is seeking custody which would separate them from their baby brother, Blanket. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that these kids belong with the grandmother they know. Anyone could see the bond Katherine shares with those kids. Therefore and thus and such, it would be a great dishonor for any judge to tear them away from her. With all of the love and support Katherine has from her other kids, Michael's kids will always be loved and taken care of. That's all Michael wanted.
