“This is one of the reasons I believe that his death, Prince's, should not be held silent just to appease those who can't deal with it, or think it's too long after, or etc., etc., etc. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Nobody should put their own beliefs, or restrictions, upon somebody else. Nobody should bitch at another person because their discomfort in dealing with something should be the same yours. You should be able to grieve for as long as you need to, publicly or privately. The choice in posting this thread is that simple for me. And anyone who has discomfort with this discussion should not click on the thread - the topic or subject matter, is clearly listed in the title. If it is not for you, simply skip this thread. No one will miss you or your reason for doing so. ”June7, 1/19 in the forums

“When he lived with me, I thought he wasn’t doing anything during the day while I was away at work, but I found out that he was teaching other kids in the building how to play instruments and that they would have jam sessions. Prince was the kind of person who like to teach and bring out the best in others. - Sharon Nelson on her brother, Prince”June7, 8/17 in the forums

“Well, that WB deal for the PR reissue was developed by those who really didn’t know my brothers business, we are not consulted or asked for input on any of the released materials. You are probably going to see many more mistakes since many of those in charge are not asking us for input and are making decisions while attempting to learn Prince 101. - Sharon Nelson”June7, 8/17 in the forums

prince.org: still would stand all time

Prince has been gone 17 (+2209) days, 17 (+2209) long nights.

But the music never dies, and prince.org will be here for you, the community, as long as you want us to be.

Thank you for continuing to contribute to this vibrant sanctuary for all those who believe in the power of the funk, of Lovesexy, and most importantly, each other.
