  • Stimmen zu Joe Jacksons Tod

    28. Juni 2018

    Paris Jackson hat eine rührende Botschaft für ihren Grossvater verfasst. Auch Grace Rwaramba, Prince und die Nachlassverwaltung haben sich zum Tod von Joe Jackson geäussert.

    Grace Rwaramba, frühere MJJ Productions Mitarbeiterin und ab Princes Geburt das Kindermädchen von Prince, Paris und Blanket, schrieb auf Twitter:

    I am sad to learn that Mr. Joe Jackson has passed. While he and Michael had their differences earlier in life, Michael always spoke of his father with love, respect, and appreciation. Michael particular loved how his children adored their grandfather. Rest In Peace Mr. Jackson

    Das MJ Estate verfasste folgendes Statement:

    We are deeply saddened by Mr. Jackson’s passing and extend our heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Katherine Jackson and the family. Joe was a strong man who acknowledged his own imperfections and heroically delivered his sons and daughters from the steel mills of Gary, Indiana to worldwide pop superstardom.

    Mr. Jackson’s contributions to the history of music are enormous. They were acknowledged by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 in a proclamation naming him as Best Entertainment Manager of All Time; he was inducted into Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame in 2014 and his son Michael acknowledged him with a Joe Jackson Day at Neverland. We had developed a warm relationship with Joe in recent years and will miss him tremendously.

    Paris Jackson postete auf Instagram ein Foto, wie sie Joe beim Besuch im Krankenhaus ein letztes Mal die Hand hält. Dazu schrieb sie:

    RIP The HAWK. Joseph Jackson.

    spending those last few moments with you were everything. being able to tell you everything i needed to tell you before saying goodbye was such a blessing. everyone that came to visit you, came with love, respect, and so much pride in their hearts for you. proud of you, proud to be your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, proud to have your strength and share the dynasty you spent your life creating, and proud to be a jackson. you are the first true jackson. the legend that started it all. none of us would be anywhere near where we’re at if it weren’t for you. you are the strongest man i know. your life’s work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live. i will cherish every moment with you til the day i die, especially our last moments. being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you’ll ever know. quoting advice you gave me when i was a little kid and seeing your eyes light up, sharing stories my dad used to tell me about you, telling a joke and hearing you laugh for the last time.. my heart is full knowing we left each other in that way. i made you promise me you’ll come visit me. you agreed and i’m going to hold you to it. and i promised you that we will keep telling your story, over and over. to never be forgotten. my great grandchildren will know who joseph jackson is. i love you grandpa. so so so much that words can’t describe. i have immense gratitude for you, and always will. we all feel that way. thank you for everything. truly. rest in peace and transition. i’ll see you in my dreams very very soon.

    Prince Jackson schrieb:

    This man is and always will be an example of sheer willpower and dedication. He didn’t choose the path that was the easiest but he choose the path that was best for his family. You taught me to take pride in the Jackson name and what it really means, you taught me dedication in the face of adversity and most of all you showed me strength and fearlessness. There is and never will be someone like you. Fly free and until we meet again The Hawk.
