By now all will be very aware of the tragic loss of Mr. Michael Jackson who in his lifetime, one of
trial and tribulation both privately and publicly, remains an unforgettable icon. Latterly suffering
massive character smears necessitating him needing to justify himself in very public court
hearings, a telling factor emotionally, I would imagine, on someone who clearly was preferably a
private man in life off stage !
Due to the accusations milked by the Media fed to the public, his popularity decreased and for a
time his record sales dropped and he finding himself in financial difficulty as well as physically
suffering the scourge of cancer, as has been reported in the British media. Yet still with the courage
and determination to perform concerts later this year in London, not wishing to let his public, his
loyal supporters, down!
His loss a profound one to the world of music, a world which his name will deservedly remain
synonymous with and hopefully now he will find the peace that has been found to have been sadly
lacking for him in his life on earth.
Ironically enough Andrew's personal song for me has always been the beautiful and touching song
" Gone Too Soon " that certainly is fitting for our loss of Mr. Jackson. This song was written by
Michael for Ryan White, a fearless young man who contracted AIDS through a hemophilia
treatment and who became an avid champion for AIDS research and knowledge before his own
death from AIDS. (See Photos Page Eight on this site for a version of that song.)
Of course also remembering another loss happening the same day... God bless Farrah Fawcett who
lost her battle with cancer, most notably remembered for her role as "Jill Monroe" in the T.V.
series "Charlie's Angels" and now released from personal pain and granted to gain her own pair of
With love to you all and special thoughts to Michael and Farrah's children, family, friends and their
loyal fans as well of course the family, friends and loyal supporters of Ryan White.

A video by Michael Jackson lamenting a lost childhood sent to us by our good friend, Lynne:
Yet one more from the talented Michael Jackson. This is a scathing indictment of mankind.
Thank you, Michael, for showing us our image that we reflect upon the world mirror.
This is a Tribute Section on my site and I don't believe in order to gain a tribute from me or indeed
from anyone, one needs to be dead. I here pay personal tribute to the new First Lady of the United
States of America "Michelle Obama".
Andrew, in looking at videos on the You Tube, came across the one below and has since listened to
a number of others, so too therefore have I of course and I know one thing; had I have lived (
Earthly - life maintained ) I would have certainly organised a meeting between she and I, as many
of her personal values are the same as and similar to ones I shared and indeed still now share in
having. Working together she and I would have made a good team!
An amazing lady in her own right and I imagine a lot more will be heard from her in the future,
quite clearly a realist, recognising it, drawing attention upon it and being someone determined to
make a difference and to utilise her position as the current President's wife to assist her in making
An interviewer of Michelle likens her very much to Jackie Kennedy; saying she shares the same
charisma that Jackie clearly displayed. Many North Americans I know see Jackie Kennedy as the
Top First Lady of the United States even today but Michelle Obama, I would think, given the
opportunities to do so will prove herself being a worthy contender for standing beside her sharing
that heartfelt tribute from the American People ! "
Listen, if you will, to Michelle Obama !

" Hello Everyone,
I have chosen here to illustrate a part of the speech
delivered by the newly elected President Barak Obama
whilst in Cairo earlier this year. It clearly illustrates this
is a man who seemingly anyway is profoundly Spiritual
and somewhat of a visionary which is marvellous to realise
and particularly to have placed in such a prominent position
in the world. He is a man who is associated with the very
positive acclamation "YES WE CAN !" and I actually feel
he will make a tremendous difference to things over time.
Certainly someone like him is needed in this world of corruption and greed.
Naturally there will be those who determine him to be a puppet of the United States Political
System, the real controllers who of course are nameless and operate powerfully; their identity
unknown by the majority certainly and perhaps initially as most if not all of the ministers,
certainly those in high positions anyway within the British Establishment are; he was and is...but
to make a speech like this ( unless he is an accomplished actor, a hypocritical showman with no
personal morals at all which I personally do not believe to be the case ) would necessitate it's
coming from someone genuinely inspired to create them and to believe in the message it strongly
delivers; so consequently I would be extremely surprised to discover it being alternatively one
garnered by someone else with no personal input from him at all to present publicly!
As I say to be able to speak such words as this with conviction and for them to have effect and be
seen and believed as being sincere; they'd need to be felt and believed in by the person delivering
them which I strongly believe they are but here it is so read it for yourself and see what you
With love from,
June 4th 2009 "Speech made in Cairo, Egypt by President Obama "
"All of us share this world for but a brief moment in time. The question is whether we spend that
time focused on what pushes us apart, or whether we commit ourselves to an effort – a sustained
effort – to find common ground, to focus on the future we seek for our children, and to respect the
dignity of all human beings.
It is easier to start wars than to end them. It is easier to blame others than to look inward; to see
what is different about someone than to find the things we share. But we should choose the right
path, not just the easy path. There is also one rule that lies at the heart of every religion – that we
do unto others as we would have them do unto us. This truth transcends nations and peoples – a
belief that isn't new; that isn't black or white or brown; that isn't Christian, or Muslim or Jew. It's a
belief that pulsed in the cradle of civilization, and that still beats in the heart of billions. It's a faith
in other people, and it's what brought me here today.
We have the power to make the world we seek, but only if we have the courage to make a new
beginning, keeping in mind what has been written.
The Holy Koran tells us, "O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made
you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another."
The Talmud tells us: "The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace."
The Holy Bible tells us, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God."
The people of the world can live together in peace. We know that is God's vision. Now, that must be
our work here on Earth. Thank you and may God's peace be upon you."
President Barak Obama of the United States.
" A touching musical tribute to "Boyzone" member "Stephen Gately" who tragically died recently
aged 33 years old. This pop band had a string of hits of which this was one that featured Stephen as
front man. It is a song with a dynamic lyric and a powerful message to everyone and one I imagine
Stephen sung from the heart having admitted publicly his being Gay, The line "I can't be what I'm
not" being particularly appropriate to his personal honesty. He is remembered by the fellow group
members very fondly, they were planning to reunite and record again together in the near future ...
hopefully they might consider perhaps recording a new version of this song in dedication to
Stephen's memory ! "
My thoughts are with his husband,family and friends."
(Rose's Note: Not to detract one iota from this tribute to Stephen Gately, but rather to add to it on a personal level,
this song is one that I feel is applicable for both Andrew and I in our work with Diana. While it was perhaps written as
a love song it has deep spiritual meanings as well. Note the reference to what God would say and the symbolic man
in white ascending into the air. The main theme of never giving up and overcoming all odds rings deep within me. It
also echoes within me that this could be a song that would fit well with the reason that Diana is back interacting with
this world...because of a love that will not cease. Thus, Andrew and I will never let what others believe or say to us
sway us from the reality of our knowledge about Diana being alive in Spirit and working to "find our own way back"
and that Andrew and I "can't deny what I (we) believe" and that we will not let this work be stopped...."no matter
FASHION designer Catherine Walker died on Thursday 23 September 2010 in hospital near her Sussex home.
Catherine Walker was best known for her work with Diana, Princess of Wales. The pair began their professional
relationship three months after Diana's marriage to Prince Charles in 1981 and subsequently became close friends.
Catherine designing gowns like the nick - named " Elvis Dress " worn by Diana during an official visit to Hong Kong
and turning heads ! Latterly the newly - invented Diana freed from the royal marriage relied upon Catherine's
designs to give her a new image ... an independent woman and free - spirit !
"Catherine defined an era," Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman said. "Her clothes demonstrated how it was possible to
simultaneously look feminine and elegant and businesslike. Her collections of glamorous tailoring made women feel
confident and chic."
Catherine Walker, who had fought and survived cancer twice, was the head of one of the most successful British
couture brands, having dressed actresses including Joely Richardson and Olivia Williams on the red carpet.
In recent years, she had developed a new design team to work under the name Catherine Walker & Co and, with
them, created a portfolio of designs through to 2012.
According to a statement from her family, her team "are determined to grow the brand and the legacy of this great
" To the above obituary for someone whom I considered to be a great personal friend and someone I grew
to greatly rely upon; I want to say how very sad I was to learn of her untimely death. Catherine was invaluable in
assisting my gaining a greater sense of self - confidence and so consequently finding a positive direction in my life;
designing and creating outfits for me that ensured l looked good. Each and every one of special delight to me. My
thoughts are with her family and friends as she will be surely missed by everyone who knew her."

Death of Screen Goddess Elizabeth Taylor - "The Last of the Hollywood Greats "
March 23rd 2011 seeing the death from congenital heart failure of British born Dame Elizabeth Taylor aged 79 years
old in Cedars Sinai Medical Centre in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. surrounded by her children
Michael and Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd and Maria Burton. The child star's life, being only aged 12 filming "
National Velvet ", being one that no one could make up including eight marriages; famously marrying and divorcing
male screen legend Welsh born Richard Burton twice. Elizabeth and Richard meeting on the set of the most expensive
film ever made "Cleopatra" in which Elizabeth starred in the leading role as the Egyptian Queen and he as her lover
Mark Antony. Their off screen relationship in celebrity culture proving to being one of the most compelling, including
he presenting her with that giant diamond ring from Cartier at 69 carats and costing $ 1.1 million; the envy of many
women! H.R.H. Princess Margaret on seeing it remarking " Is that the famous diamond ? It's so large - how very
vulgar!" Cheekily the screen star saying " Yes, ain't it great? ". The Princess then asking to try it on and then Elizabeth
saying to the royal princess " It doesn't look so vulgar now, does it!" The English screen siren's having been born in
Hampstead, London her jewellery collection being legendary as she has proven and will continue proving to be!
The film star's lifetime seeing her facing personal tragedy as with the death in a plane crash of her film producer
husband Michael Todd. The Media at times labelling her a home - wrecker and husband stealer. Her own personal
battles with alcohol and drug addictions and weight problems inciting her to overdose on barbituartes as well as
enduring no less than 30 medical operations and also suffering chronic illnesses, including in later life osteoporosis
necessitating her being wheel chair bound, but the lady proving to the world that she was indeed a survivor.
Dame Elizabeth Taylor, a personal friend and loyal supporter of Michael Jackson, was a tireless advocate of Gay
Rights and A.I.D.S. awareness being hostess to many functions for charitable causes and making a surprise
appearance or as a V.I.P. guest at others raising thousands of pounds for them. In her own words expressing to an
interviewer her gravestone should read "Here lies Elizabeth".. She hating being called Liz!
I salute you Dame Elizabeth Taylor, starring in over 50 films and winning two Oscars, someone somewhat regal in
your own right, a star whose light will not dim or fade !
