La Toya Offers Heartfelt Memorial Thoughts About Brother Michael

MICHAEL JACKSON's sister LA TOYA has paid a heartfelt final tribute to her late brother in the programme for today's (07Jul09) memorial service in Los Angeles.
In among the letters and notes recalling the King of Pop's life and career, La Toya remembered a conversation she had with the pop star after he won his first Grammy Award in 1980.
She writes, "He said, 'I want to be the the biggest and greatest entertainer of all time.'"
The grieving sister then states, "You began to write that dream all throughout your bedroom; on walls, on the mirrors, in your books and everywhere else you could find space.
"You started working harder creating sounds and songs the world had never heard before. You started dancing until you literally collapsed. When most artists were trying to learn how to sing... you were singing and moonwalking."
La Toya concludes her moving note by adding, "God has called you to come home, collect your wings and fulfil your demands in heaven, and continue your magic amongst the angels.
"I love you deeply... Keep the magic going."
The tribute pamphlet also featured a small note honouring Jackson's mother Katherine.
Mariah Carey, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder and Jennifer Hudson are slated to perform at the Staples Center memorial.
In a post on his Twitter.com blog, Mayer writes, "I'm honored to have been asked to play at MJ's memorial service."
