Michael Jackson Memorial Service Highlights (Video)

Quotes from Michael Jackson's Memorial Service:

Al Sharpton pretty well said it all when he addressed Michael Jackson's children, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket, who were sitting in the audience with Michael's parents:

"There wasn't anything strange about your daddy. It was strange what your daddy had to deal with."
-- Rev. Al Sharpton

"Both of us needed to be adults very early, but when we were together, we were two little kids having fun ... He was caring, funny, honest, pure, non-jaded, and he was a lover of life."
-- Brooke Shields

"I just wanted to say, ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you can imagine. I just wanted to say I love him so much."
-- Paris Katherine Jackson

"We are missing Michael Jackson. But we do know we had him, and we are the world."
-- Maya Angelou

"Being judged, ridiculed, how much pain can one take ... Maybe now, Michael, they will leave you alone."

--Marlon Jackson
