He was fifty years old at the time of his death. On July 12, 2009, a televised memorial was held for fans. On September 3, 2009, The Jackson Family held a private funeral for the immediate family and 200 guests. In February 2010, the coroner released an official report detailing the cause of Jackson's death. “November 7, 2011, a Los Angeles County jury convicted Michael Jackson's personal physician of involuntary manslaughter” (Los Angeles Times, 1993-2013).
June 25th started out as a great day for me just like any other day. As I flew around the house to find Michael, as I do every morning, I flew into his room where he was laying lifeless on his bed. I thought to myself he is probably still sleeping, so I flew toward his face and landed on his nose hoping for him to flinch or react in some way. But nothing happen he did not even flinch, and then I realized he was not breathing. I panicked, I had no idea what to do, but then his personal physician, Conrad Murray, came into the room and saw that Michael was not breathing. He then checked his pulse and found that it was barely detectable. The doctor began administering CPR to Jackson to no avail. When the doctor’s attempts to revive Michael failed, “he then placed a call to 9-1-1 at 12:20 pm” (A&E., 1996-2013). Moments later paramedics were at the scene and began treating Michael before they rushed him out to “Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center” (A+E., 1996-2013). I frantically watched all of this and as they were loading his lifeless body into the ambulance I flew in right behind them to make sure I was not left behind. I landed on his foot and perched myself there for the ride, the paramedics continued to perform CPR all the way to the hospital and as they unloaded him. I held on tight to the top of his foot as we rushed into the hospital; they had him somewhat stable at this point but he was still very critical. They place him in ICU on a machine and I watched from up in a corner hoping he would recover, but there was no change as people came in and out of the room to see him. He died at some point in time this morning after being brought in to the hospital, I did not pay attention to the time, once the beep started because his heart had stopped I knew it was all over and left the hospital to keep from causing myself anymore grief.
After flying around for almost a month, I was trying to figure out what could I do? Where could I go? Now that Michael was gone I had no home of my own, I felt like a lost soul roaming around Los Angeles. As I was flying through Staples Center in downtown, on July 12, 2009, I realized that something was happening inside. I flew in to find out what all the noise was about, and as I crept through the crowds, I saw that they were doing a televised memorial for my beloved King of Pop. I then went up high to find a good place to sit and watch the memorial. I knew this would bring back memories of Michael for me, but I also hoped it would help with...
