    First, I would like to give my condollences to the Jackson Family, I also was born in 1958. I grew up with Michael, he was like part of my family, He really was the greatest artist of all time. And that's saying alot concidering the company he keeps. We are talking about Elvis, the Beatles,and on and on. Anyway I have on thing to suggest to the folks who are doing the plans they asked if Smokey Robinson would sing a song and he said yes, but I'm sorry I don't remember the song but anyway he should sing the song that he sang in the movie The Temptations at the very end for the funeral for Melvin/Blue. I'm gonna miss you my buddy I'm gonna miss you my friend I'll promise to love you to the end. You all know the song. I cry everytime I see that movie it was just on. Well Michael I believe you are in a better place but before you go we just all want to thank you for giving us all just a piece of your Heart for other you gave even more and may God Bless you Micael Jackson!!!!!!

    WOW! Big job for an intern. Well done intern. And Perry really deserved this award. He has done a lot for his community, providing jobs for dozens of African Americans and bringing to light young talent...
