-- 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
