Ruth Rikowski’s reaction to the death of Michael Jackson on her blog ‘Serendipitous Moments’, see: http://ruthrikowskiim.blogspot.com/2009/06/michael-jacson-shame-on-society.html Following the death of my father last February, the music of Michael Jackson has helped my youngest son, Gregory, to move beyond the aftermath and to move on to new projects. Michael Jackson’s music also helped Ruth too in this respect.
Greg and Ruth had tickets to see Michael at the O2. They are both shocked and saddened at the death of this great man.
