MJ's Daughter: 'I Love Him So Much'
One of the most heartbreaking moments of the Michael Jackson memorial service came at the very end -- when Jackson's only daughter Paris took the stage.
"I just wanted to say, ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine," the brave 11-year-old said. As her eyes filled with tears, she continued, "And I just wanted to say I love him so much."
Once Paris stopped speaking, the crowd cheered and the entire family embraced before walking off the stage, closing the ceremony.
This marked the first time Paris had spoken in public. Jackson did his best to shield his three children from the spotlight and frequently kept their faces covered with masks.
