Michael, you have been an inspiration to me since I was a little girl. Your music has pulled me out of my saddest times for as long as I can remember. Even though I had never had the pleasure of meeting you in person, I feel like I, as well as all of your fans, had a personal connection with you. When you were in your darkest hour, we were your strength and that was because we knew you loved us. Not many artists appreciated their fans like you did and that is why we stuck by your side through thick and thin. Even though you are gone now, you are immortalized in your work. You left us with so much, and for that we are grateful.
