La Toya marks Jackson's birthday by posting personal snap
La Toya Jackson has paid a touching tribute to her late brother Michael on his birthday, by posting a personal family snap on the internet.
The Thriller hitmaker, who passed away in 2009, would have turned 53 on Monday, and to mark the occasion La Toya has taken to Twitter.com to post a photo of Michael on the last birthday he spent with the Jackson family in 2004.
Jackson can be seen resting his hand on his mother Katherine's shoulder as his brothers, sisters and father Joe pose for the camera around a table.
La Toya writes alongside the image, "On MJ's 53rd birthday I'd like to share a personal photo of MJ's last birthday dinner with my family on August 30, 2004... Happy birthday Michael! I miss you and we will always love you! You've given such an extraordinary gift to the world! We will cherish it!"
