I got this email from my mom this morning:

Its a sad day today that this great entertainer has died so suddenly and so young.

MJ GoodbyeSince 3.30 our stations are reporting nothing else. America is in a state of shock. He definitely had the last say – thousands are gathering outside the hospital in Los Angeles, in New York and all around the States. Not since Diana’s death have I seen such scenes of emotion and sadness.

It’s just surreal to see the words, ” Michael Jackson has died”. Unbelievable. I felt very sorry for him during the last years. They mentioned that as soon as he died the Internet went into overload. It was actually slowing down.

Sorry guys just had to email you – I am sure you have heard. I wanted to call but it was too late.
