Simple goodbye

As a mum, my heart went out to Paris Jackson as she made her moving tribute to her dad yesterday. It must have taken a lot of courage to get up on that stage and her honest, unrehearsed words were one of the most genuine moments in the whole event.

Taking children to funerals used to be taboo, but if it's handled carefully, it can be an important part of the grieving process. Now it's over, though, I do hope Paris and her siblings are able to live their lives away from the spotlight.
