@ Autumn: Aw, you're welcome! Right back at ya! :wkiss
@ Juniorlady: You're welcome girl, no prob! :wkiss And thanks!
I just want everyone here at the boards to be able to have an opportunity to have options on how they'd like to celebrate together for Our Michael, and be able to express their love and gratitude in any way they wish. Everbody's handling it differently, but I would hate to have someone not be able to express their love for him the way they want to b/c they can't find anything or think of something, b/c it's SO important. Like this wonderful girl Bree for instance, she's fasting all day and watching every MJ tape she has until midnight when she lights her candle. So, those who can go out and want to celebrate this way can see here, or stay in and read some reflections.. I'm happy to help 'cuz I wuv you guys. :hilarious <3
