Joe Jackson in Chicago for the weekend

August 21, 2009 (CHICAGO) Friday morning, Joe Jackson, along with Marshall Thompson of the Chi-Lites were at Ms. Biscuit on the South Side. That's where WGCI's morning show held a special broadcast.

Jackson told the WGCI morning show that it's unfortunate that Michael has not been buried yet. He was supposed to be interred August 29. But reports suggest the date will be pushed back a couple of days.

Joe Jackson also told ABC 7 that he wishes Michael could be here to see how people all around the world have remembered him.

"He never knew how much he was loved all around the world...He will be remembered forever," said Jackson.

Jackson and Thompson plan to participate in a Ceasefire event Friday afternoon.
