I admired her for the strength and dignity with which she fought her battle with cancer. I saw a lot of interviews and she struck me as a gentle, unassuming person who didn't like the limelight and didn't want to fight her fight under the "microscope" as she, herself, put it.
It seems, then, almost fitting that someone as dazzling as Michael Jackson should pass away on the same day as she, only hours later in fact, taking the focus away from her.
May you rest in a peace, away from the scrutiny of the public eye. We will always remember your smile.
