[Passing Of Michael Jackson]

Today, we join the entire world in mourning the death of Michael Jackson. He was truly a music icon and a legendary entertainer.

We grew up listening to his music and watching his dance moves, all of which made him the pop phenomenon that he became. His music spoke to the hearts of people and paralleled generations of social and economic change.

Our prayers go out to the Jackson family and Michael’s children as they deal with the shock and sadness of this profound loss. We will all miss the “King of Pop”.
