Today marks the fifth anniversary of Michael Jackson‘s death, and no one mourns him more than his family.

Sister La Toya Jackson, 58, gave an exclusive statement to ABC News about her late brother, who died June 25, 2009, at age 50:

“5 Years ago today we all lost the most INCREDIBLE father, brother, son and the most talented performer this world has ever known!

“If Michael were here today he would tell us all to celebrate his life and not to mourn his death. Michael was all about love and peace and in honor of my brother I ask you to please do something kind for someone today, and, BLAST and DANCE to all the beautiful music he left us all.

“I will spend this day celebrating his life by listening to his music, looking through old home photos, watching his videos and concerts. MICHAEL I LOVE YOU FOREVER and if you were here today I know you would say, “I LOVE YOU MORE!”

ABC News’ Sabina Ghebremedhin contributed to this report.
