We are where nostalgia lives
Paris Jackson, daughter of the late Michael Jackson and granddaughter of the recently deceased Joe Jackson, has shared a touching post on her official Instagram after her grandfather’s death. Joe died on June 27th, 2018 at the age of 89 from terminal pancreatic cancer. He was surrounded by family at the moment of his death.
Despite the controversy surrounding Joe’s actions when Michael was still alive, a number of family members, including his children and grandchildren, paid their respects at the hospice where he passed away. Paris was one of the many grandchildren there and she will forever be thankful for that moment.

Paris’ words in her post were nothing short of heartwarming, yet bittersweet as she had to say her goodbyes.
“I will cherish every moment with you til the day I die, especially our last moments. Being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you’ll ever know, ” she wrote.

When Michael passed away in 2009, the will he wrote in 2002 revealed that he left nothing to his father. The will left a life estate for Katherine Jackson (his mother), but nothing for Joe or his siblings. Joe apparently did eventually make peace with Michael’s estate and they did provide for him in recent years, according to TMZ.
Joe Jackson, the man who introduced the Jackson family to the world, died last Wednesday at Las Vegas hospital, at the age of 89. Read more! link in bio. #JoeJackson #JoeJacksonRIP #Jackson5 #JacksonFamily #MICHEALJACKSON #JanetJackson #Jackson #popmusic

It’s evident that Joe’s family members who he is survived by, including Paris, will miss him terribly and do their best to honor him in life. Paris ended her Instagram post with, “I have immense gratitude for you, and always will. We all feel that way. Thank you for everything. Truly. Rest in peace and transition. I’ll see you in my dreams very very soon.”
RIP Joe Jackson! I always said you were a damn good father! You only wanted the best for your children. They all turned to be amazing successful artist, entrepreneurs, and humanitarians. Thanks for inspiring the world and giving so much, we can only be thankful. @parisjackson @princejackson @michaeljackson @dannydashandrews #michaeljackson #JoeJackson #jacksons #mJ
