Ha thanks! I'm sure they'll sell. I was looking on there and any under $500 ending today have several bids on them.
WOW I have to admit I'm an MJ fan, but I never thought I'd be so upset! Last night was horrible. It hit me that there is no more MJ. But the kids really pulled on my heart.
i watched the whole thing. I knew they were bringing in the casket so that didn't get me, but as soon as I saw that the hand his brothers and other pallbearers were holding his casket w/ had the glitter glove I just started crying. It was the perfect touch.
Then I did okay until Brooke Shields talked. It was just so real. It wasn't "WHAT, Michael Jackson eats Kentucky fried chicken!" or we always lost to the Jackson boys at softball. She really gave light on the real MJ. And she could barely keep it together, it was nice to see how much his friends cared.
Then when Marlon started talking I choked up. he just started crying right away and said "I'm hurting" But when paris started I broke down!
She reminds me of me 10 years ago. I was the same age as Prince, so only a year older than Paris, when my dad died of a heart attack. We had 2 funerals too, I had seen his body which I've heard they have. Seeing his body made me realize yes my dad is dead but didn't really set in. I sat in front of his casket just like they did and stayed strong, didn't cry etc. But when I went to talk it was just like Paris I broke down. But really it didn't hit me until a month and a half later. At first it felt like he was just on vacaton or something but when a month and a half went by and he didn't come home it really settled in that my dad was never going to come home.
I'm sure Paris, Prince, & blanket are used to their father being gone for a few weeks at a time so I'm sure it will take a bit longer for it to hit them. The hardest part hasn't come yet. I really really feel for them.
