Losing a loved one is never easy. When that person leaves, they leave a great void that nothing and nobody can fill. Although each one processes the mourning in a different way, it is common for family and friends to look for an adequate way to say goodbye, to close the cycle and show the great love they feel for that person who is no longer there.
That's how Paris Jackson felt. Through her Instagram account, the actress said goodbye to her grandfather Joseph Jackson, who died June 27 at age 89. Known mainly as the father and promoter of Michael Jackson, 'Joe' (as his family and friends called him) died from terminal cancer in Las Vegas, United States.
With the intention of giving him a fond farewell, Paris published some photographs and an emotional message, where you can see the great love and admiration she feels for him. Apparently, the young woman had the opportunity to share the last moments of Joseph's life and say goodbye to him in person.

RIP The HAWK. Joseph Jackson. spending those last few moments with you were everything. being able to tell you everything i needed to tell you before saying goodbye was such a blessing. everyone that came to visit you, came with love, respect, and so much pride in their hearts for you. proud of you, proud to be your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, proud to have your strength and share the dynasty you spent your life creating, and proud to be a jackson. you are the first true jackson. the legend that started it all. none of us would be anywhere near where we’re at if it weren’t for you. you are the strongest man i know. your life’s work will go down in history, as will you, to be known as one of the greatest patriarchs to ever live. i will cherish every moment with you til the day i die, especially our last moments. being able to hold your hand, lay with you and cuddle you, give you kisses all over your cheeks and forehead, meant more to me than you’ll ever know. quoting advice you gave me when i was a little kid and seeing your eyes light up, sharing stories my dad used to tell me about you, telling a joke and hearing you laugh for the last time.. my heart is full knowing we left each other in that way. i made you promise me you’ll come visit me. you agreed and i’m going to hold you to it. and i promised you that we will keep telling your story, over and over. to never be forgotten. my great grandchildren will know who joseph jackson is. i love you grandpa. so so so much that words can’t describe. i have immense gratitude for you, and always will. we all feel that way. thank you for everything. truly. rest in peace and transition. i’ll see you in my dreams very very soon.
Although the Jacksons have had several disputes and controversial moments, everything seems to indicate that Paris is willing to put all that history aside and focus only on the good times. This with the intention of keeping alive the memory of his grandfather and strengthen the affection of the rest of the family.
