Thanks again Spike for a wonderful party to honor The King, Michael. Wow, it was a blast. Michael's fans are the best in the world. I have never been to an event to honor one person where there was so much diversity. I met people from Russia, Spain, Japan, all educational backgrounds and ages. Everyone was so loving and came to party. Michael left a legacy that will be remembered forever. I danced at the party and all the way home. Michael your fans love you and we miss you. Protect us and may your spirit live forever. <3<3<3 Now you can play all day<3<3<3 Love, Sharon
