I think it is a rather nice send off,
Nice to hear others sing his songs

Brooke Shields is really lovely.

IMO it looks sick,to have his children used in that way
I suppose some people will do anything for money

How were the children used exactly? A friend of mine died last year from cancer, she left 4 children. At her funeral all but the youngest who was four years old spoke about how much they would love and miss their mum. There's far too much cynicism ad suspicion in this world. At the end of the day the children had a right to say a last goodbye! But even their I guess people will find fault, just for the sake of it.

even there. Cynical miss-spelling!

i don't think the children have been used in any way. i personally would have preffered the children to keep their anonnymity but it was their fathers funeral. if she wanted to speak it would have been just as wrong to have forbidden her.

to us he was a singer/star. to them he was their brother/son/father.
It must be incredibly difficult to have to grieve in front of the worlds media and such harsh criticism

Same old faces being judgemental and negative !!! Yawn yawn......

AitchTwoOh Tue 07-Jul-09 22:29:51

simpson Tue 07-Jul-09 22:32:05

can an 11 yr old differentiate though?

They are still saying goodbye to their daddy sad

VaginaShmergina Tue 07-Jul-09 22:32:13

I repeat, same old faces !

AitchTwoOh Tue 07-Jul-09 22:34:00

yes, but what face are you referring to? only 2shoes has said anything that could be described as negative or judgemental. you do realise that while she may have 2 shoes, she is just one person, don't you?

The ?? to VS btw

2shoes Tue 07-Jul-09 22:35:09

perhaps I am beig judgemental, but I don't see that using a child to sell a dvd as a good thing.

poface Tue 07-Jul-09 22:35:27

I only caught five minutes towards the end. His daughter was fiddling with her bag, quite a normal thing to do in the circs I think, whole thing probably numbing and overwhelming. But both Latoya and then Janet remonstrated with her and she was told to look suitably sad. Then she did a tearful speech and I turned off. Awful emotional wankery.

2shoes Tue 07-Jul-09 22:36:36

AitchTwoOh how many times are you going to use my name in ths thread

simpson Tue 07-Jul-09 22:37:00

maybe the money from said DVD will go to charity <hopeful>

AitchTwoOh Tue 07-Jul-09 22:38:03

there's nothing wrong with being judgemental, 2shoes. VS appears to be being judgemental, for example. it's only questionable in her case because she seems to think it's a bad thing on a web forum to actually Have An Opinion.

VaginaShmergina Tue 07-Jul-09 22:38:20
