Michael Jackson’s father greets hometown Gary crowd


The Jackson family patriarch, Joe Jackson, returned to their hometown of Gary, Ind. for a memorial service Friday for the King of Pop.  Twenty Jackson cousins were also there to greet him at the 6,000-seat stadium, reports People.  Although most of the cousins have not kept in touch with the Jackson clan, they still felt the loss.

“We might not have seen him in 10 or 15 years, but it’s still family,” said Fossett Turner, 55. “You don’t see him, but that doesn’t mean the love isn’t there.”
