Joseph Walter Jackson, born on 26 July 1929, has passed away on 27 June 2018 at age 89. We owe this man a lot of thanks and gratitude for creating the World's Most Popular Music Family and Pop Royalty. Sending love, light and condoleances to the entire Jackson Family and all Jacksons fans worldwide.
Many years ago God planted a special seed in the earth. The seed was put there to be cultivated, nourished and cared for very carefully. It began to germinate into a strong root and then a beautiful tree. Its roots were very busy feeding from the earth so that the tree would continue to grow very strong and proud on a solid foundation. As years went by, the tree began to sprout many branches. The branches were very strong individually and collectively and were always accompanied by hummingbirds, larks and other types of singing birds. Even though the branches were pointing in many different directions, they knew that if they stayed together the tree could weather any storms that were ahead. The tree was so beautiful to look at and everyone who saw it wanted to take a branch or two for their own satisfaction, but the root system always believed, “United we stand, divided we fall but together we can conquer all.” Today this tree is now planted in the minds of human beings all over the world. No matter how far the branches may grow in life, it all started from a seed that was planted at 2300 Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana. The root of the tree is Katherine and Joseph Jackson who gave the tree life, direction and a strong foundation so that the whole world could appreciate its beauty and what it stands for.
