These photos were taken at Knotts Berry Farm in March 1984. I was sitting on the curb with Corie and Stacie was in her stroller, Chuck had to use the men's room. I heard a loud commotion and looked up to see Michael Jackson coming towards me with a few bodyguards and a small crowd following behind him. As he walked by, I said to him "hi Michael" and he waved and said
"Hello", by now Chuck had come out and I told him what had just happened. I told him you watch the kids, I'm going to try and get some photos of him. I have loved his music since I was a young girl, The Jackson 5 and the Osmonds were my generations Beatles and Elvis Presley. Do I think his behavior was odd, yes, but I never thought he was guilty of improper behavior with children, I think his strange upbringing denied him of a "Normal" childhood and therefore he never really ever grew up and therefore acted in a childish manner. As the news came forth of his passing today, I was deeply saddened as another Celebrity has left this earth prematurely.
