“7 years, rest in peace, my best friend in the entire universe,” wrote daughter Paris.

Michael Jackson was remembered by his family on Saturday, seven years after his passing at the age of 50.

Daughter Paris paid tribute to the late King of Pop by creating a photo collage featuring images of herself and her father, including childhood snapshots and what appears to be a Photoshopped picture of what the two might look like if they could pose together today. She posted the collage on Instagram.

“7 years, rest in peace, my best friend in the entire universe. i love you more than anything,” Paris wrote in a touching note. She continued on to address the recent pornography collection allegations against her father: “things may be a little shitty in the press right now but everyone knows it's all bull and i swear on the family name i will protect you for as long as i live. there's no one like you, and there never will be. thank you for touching millions of hearts, but especially my own.”

Jackson’s brothers — Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon, who made up the Jackson 5 with him — also honored him with a performance at the San Diego County Fair in Del Mar, Calif., ET reports. The Jacksons sang such hits as “One More Chance” and Michael’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” both of which were captured on video and uploaded to Instagram by a fan at the show.
