Michael Jackson 3-Year Death Anniversary: Daughter Paris Remembers Dad

Monday marks the third anniversary of Michael Jackson's death -- a devastating loss that is still fresh in the mind of the icon's daughter, Paris Jackson.

"RIP Michael Jackson .. Dad you will forever be in my heart <3 i love you," Paris tweeted.

It's been three years since Paris, now 14 years old, told millions of people watching her father's July 2009 memorial service, "I just want to say... ever since I was born.... daddy has been the best father you can imagine. And I just want to say I love him so much."

The aspiring actress's aunt La Toya Jackson also sent a message into the Twittersphere for her late brother: "Sad Morning All. This Day was the day that lead to the demise of my little brother."Michael We Love" May you RIP. Gone FAR To Soon."

As Paris told Oprah during her sit-down with the TV queen in early June, "It never gets easier."
