This month marks exactly 12 years, 12 DAMN YEARS since #MichaelJackson left us. The injustices that followed even after his passing, his family had to endure. But both family and all of us who loved him dearly, have prevailed. Because true justice always comes delayed. #MJFampic.twitter.com/3I5dMQev1c— Ika Ferrer GotiÄ‡ (@IkaFerrerGotic) June 7, 2021

The trauma of 12 years ago is etched permanently into my mind and the world got a lot darker that day. But instead of focusing on pain, I focus on love and the joy and healing you've given me for over 3 decades. I love you more â¤ï¸ #12YearsWithoutMichaelJacksonpic.twitter.com/ouXTAlmgJY— casey rain aka s-endz (@CaseyRain) June 25, 2021
You were always there for me and my brothers. Teaching and showing us how to be the best person we could. Thank you Uncle Michael for being such an amazing uncle and for all the wonderful memories and experiences you gave me in my life. I will always love you and miss you. - Meho— TJ Jackson (@tjjackson) June 25, 2021
12 years ago on June 25th, 2009. As We huddled on the front lawn of UCLA Medical Center, the world as I knew it ended forever. We saw him alive just a few hours earlier. Nothing has made sense ever since. My heart is forever broken. ðŸ’” pic.twitter.com/PEAYWZymZk— SamanthaDGosson (@SamanthaDGosson) June 25, 2021

MJ and Nip (Whitney) both changed my life forever! Personally, and of course in this business. I'll be forever grateful to both of them. Not just for me, but for the extraordinary musical legacies they left to the world! M~ #MichaelJackson#WhitneyHoustonhttps://t.co/J6mCHqEpzx— michael bearden (@MichaelBearden) June 25, 2021
I had a lucid dream about Michael the other night. When I say lucid to me those are sleep visits. He was hugging me & inviting me into his home & to go kayak ðŸ˜ I felt protected in that unique way he had. I woke up and realized it was the anniversary. Thanks for the visit, MJ!— Laura Bottrell (@LBottrell808) June 25, 2021
