Michael Jackson, La Toya Jackson

With so much focus on the state of the investigation into Michael Jackson's death (still expanding), his autopsy (delayed indefinitely) and burial (not yet interred), the spotlight has slowly moved away from the Jackson family.

Which is not to discount the yeoman work of whoever helped muzzle Papa Joe.

But La Toya Jackson told E! News today that the family is continuing to quietly work through their grief.

"We're doing the best that we can," she said while working at AIDS Project Los Angeles, a long-favored cause of the King of Pop.

"Everyone has just been going through what they're going through at the moment. It's a very trying time for all of us."

As for her newfound goodwill—in addition to volunteering at APLA, all proceeds from her new single, "Home," will be donated to the organization—she credits Michael's influence.

"It means a lot to me because as you all know, my brother has given to so many organizations, and this is one of the organizations he's been giving to for over 10 years."
