Michael Jackson died three years ago today from cardiac arrest caused by an overdose of prescription drugs administered to him at his home by his personal physician, who was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter, but the millions of fans worldwide are still mourning his death as if he died yesterday.

Although the legendary artist has left the world, he is still remembered and heard through his amazing work. On his third death anniversary, many prominent celebrities and fans remembered him in their sweet messages on different social networking websites.

The pop superstar's only daughter, Paris Jackson, now 14, paid tribute Monday morning, tweeting, "RIP Michael Jackson ... Dad you will forever be in my heart <3 i love you."

"3 yrs ago on this June 25th, my brother passed," Randy Jackson tweeted, adding that he planned on visiting Forest Lawn, where Michael is buried, later today.

Other eminent personalities, who lamented the loss of the king of pop, include Justin Bieber, Wiz Khalifa and Usher.

Michael Jackson’s daughter also uploaded the picture of her father and mother, edited via Instagram, to show how lovely the couple looked together. Earlier, she re-tweeted a message sent her way, reading, "The ones that love us never really leave us. You can always find them in here *heart*."

Michael Jackson’s death is considered as the highest setback that the music industry has ever received. His talent and work introduced a new form of music. Sales records of his songs and albums remain unbeaten. Almost every pop artist in the industry considers Jackson as his or her mentor.

It was reported that at the time of his death, the king of pop was looking forward to a comeback tour. He was adamant that the tour would result in his revival, but unfortunately fate had other plans for the late legend.

On the third anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, Dr. Conrad Murray, who is serving four years in jail for his role in the singer's death, wished he had testified during his trial, his appeals attorney, Valerie Wass, said. MJ was eventually laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA. He was 50.

Jackson's brothers, Tito, Jackie, Jermaine and Marlon, will pay tribute to their late sibling with a series of concerts this week.
