    Thank you so much for sharing this Jackson Memorial Program with all of us. It is simply beautiful and it says the program would not have been possible without Kathreen Jackson. She must of had them made.

    There are actually people charging money for the PDF of the program. I was shocked while searching google...

    Thank you again.
    Rest in Peace Michael.
    Lots of prayers continued for your beautiful children.

    There is no need for the public to know the private details of Michael
    Jackson's children. It is so evident now,as to why he protected them with such vigor. As adults, we have a responsibility to keep children safe and that includes not delving into private matters. If it was true for Sara Palin's kids... then it should be true for Michael Jackson's children as well. The news media's moral compass is way off course.

    A great voice was taken away from the world. The songs Jackson sung touch us all in different ways. He will be missed for many years to come in which only time can heal. Now it will be God who will be so lucky for it will be God who will get to hear the beautiful sounds of Michael Jackson

    Please, please let Michael the human being rest in peace, it makes me sick listening to the stories of the drug abuse, we do not need to know all of that, he did deserve a private life and so does his family need time to be healed and comforted.

    Kudos to CNN for the outstanding classy coverage of the memorial service. Michael Jackson was a wonderful person who deserved that type of homegoing service. Marlon is right when he said to his brother: "Maybe now they will leave you alone." Thanks AC for sharing this special program with us.

    That was heart wrenching. I don't think I should have looked at it while at work. I nearly burst into tears.

    Thank you for sharing the digital version of Michael Jackson's Memorial Program. By so doing, you have allowed Michael's fans a glimpse into his personal life, with so many endearing photographs, and heartfelt words, expressed by his close family members and friends, who obviously adored him. After looking through it, it is easy to see why young Blanket grasped so tightly onto his copy and the doll of his Daddy Michael at the memorial service. Michael's legacy will live on through his three bright and beautiful children, his extended family and friends and of course his greatest gift to us all, his music. May the Jackson family find continued strength and may he rest in peace.

    Michael Jackson’s memorial service was a real tribute to his life. It’s so unfair that after death he still isn’t able to have some peace. The media has picked & prodded every aspect of his life. News today is just sensationalized gossip. Why would his Will be published for the world to see? Why are the sex allegations coming up again, he was found not guilty both times? Is there a record of him paying off jurors? If not, then everyone should shut up! This would never happen to a white celebrity. This type of profiling just goes to show that just because a black president was elected doesn’t mean that racism has been wiped out in the United States. I wonder how each of the reporters reporting the news of Michael Jackson would like it if their lives were on public display. All of you are in the public eye as well, remember that. Let’s talk about the pool situation in Philly….Let’s see the faces of the people that crossed their arms while the kids played in the pool.

    Fitting for the man he was, they really did him proud. My heart has been heavy with grief since his passing, but was eased a little when I saw the love that he had commended from those he touched.

    Michael happiness is yours now take it and fly, fly, fly in Gods loving embrace you now reside – one of his true angels.

    Its was true when you sang leave me alone, they dont really care about us but like human nature you where a stranger not in moscow but in your homeland and now you are gone to soon they have to take a look at the man in the mirror because you truly healed the world with your music and vocals.

    Peace and blessings

    Now that Michael has been memorialized,why is the media trashing him with all these allegations of drug abuse,when in 2004 it was made known he was abusing drugs and why was there no intervention?

    Thank you so much for sharing the Michael Jackson Memorial Program Book. Everything you do is with class.

    On an other note. I am tired of hearing about speculations on what drug MJ was taking etc...Why can't we wait for the toxicology to be issued then talk about it? Please do not get into yellow journalism, although tempting!
