Michael Jackson's Grave Open To The Public?

Posted: 01:39 PM ET


Michael Jackson's brother, Randy Jackson, has announced that he is in negotiations to make Michael's grave site open to the public.

The area where Michael is buried is currently off-limits to non-family members, but Randy intends to change that. His hope is to allow fans to visit the King of Pop's private mausoleum, located in Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Cal., in time for the anniversary of Michael's death, next month.

Randy tweeted, "I'm meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale. Although they have strict rules, I'll do my best 2 see if fans can visit & pay their respects beyond the gates of ForestLawn, on the 25th. I will inform you all soon."

Recently, Michael's ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley reached out to fans to send sunflowers to the cemetery, to help brighten up his grave site.

"I know how much he loved and appreciated being showered with Gifts and flowers by his fans," said Presley. "I thought if whoever wants to bought just one silk sunflower each and sent it, the whole area around him and in front of him (As well as the two large empty vases that sit on either side of him) could be filled up in no time, which would be much more appropriate than what the current status is right now."

Responding to Presley's request, a flower grower sent 2,000 sunflowers to the mausoleum.

Michael is NOT Elvis Presley by any stretch of the imagination–the family is out for what they can get in the way of monies and profits for their future–they should have interceded before his death not after!!

@*seven* my friend so true

a gesture that is so very kind
a brothers love i think you will find
but do i really need to go
or should i just wait for the good times to show
i dont think i will take that flight
cause very soon the king will be back in sight

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

pitt03   May 21st, 2010 2:05 pm ET

The fans would LOVE to be able to visit Michaels tomb!
Thank You Randy....but... I still can't imagine the pain all of you are
going through.
What a remarkable family!
Thank you Lisa Marie, for the sunflower request.
You did not have to release that little insight.
Michael's eyes, said, time and time again that he truly loved you and true love never dies.
May God bless you ALL!
Their is one thing, that I have always known.
Michael was just too good for this world.
We LOVE and MISS him so much.

hmm.I wonder how the rest of the family feels about letting fans into the private mausoleum .I just don't get it,why fans think they have to get closer to his grave site.Are the memories of Michael not enough ? Leaving flowers there are not for Michael anymore,he can't accept them.It just gives more work for the caretakers..Now if everyone keeps sending flowers between now and June 25,the fans wouldn't get that close anyways.There is already 2000 sunflowers there.I assume over the next weeks fans will be sending and,taking all kinds of flowers to FL.I wonder do the caretakers water those flowers? I love you Michael (Smile)

ummm not sure what to make of this. Guess it would be cool to do. This just may be a big turn out.


carie   May 21st, 2010 2:59 pm ET

Allow Michael to rest in peace without the public having access to him...he was public property his entire life, and now it is time to give him his space to be at peace.
RIP Sweet Michael.

I like to remember Mike When he was with us,,, not by visiting a grave sight...I like to remember the Happy times of seeing him preform & his interviews he did..

SuzieQ   May 21st, 2010 3:22 pm ET

Leave Michael alone! Let him rest in Peace.

@mary my friend so true

mary you may be the apple of larrys eye
because you bake him many a pie
to many pies are not good you see
send him a kiss its calorie free
thats what i did from the start
he told me i am the queen of hes heart
and i will win that sweepstake see
and that king will cook for me

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

Lois48   May 21st, 2010 3:45 pm ET

Well everything the brothers have tried to do for MJ, ie. tributes, etc. have fallen apart, so I don't expect this is going to happen either. I thought that the family was going to visit the site on June 25th? You would think they would want to do this in private? Instead they want it open for the fans. Doesn't make any sense to me....but then nothing has made much sense since his "passing" last year.

Anita Lawrence   May 21st, 2010 3:55 pm ET

This I’m sure is coming from a loving place in Randy’s heart but I agree with Carie. I think we should allow him the peace in death that he so longed for in life. In addition, I believe this will cause more problems from people who have no respect for another’s property like grave robbers maybe… Some people will do anything to have a piece of Michael. MORBIT MUCH??????

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 21st, 2010 4:05 pm ET

@mary my friend so true

you say things that are so right
a grave is not a happy sight
and as i believe the kings not died
and dont think i will take that ride
but some still need to see much more
they have not found what they are looking for
and they will keep on seeking see
but we all know that love is free
you cannot contain it in a crypt
maybe now this is it

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

Rebeka Davis - Recife - Brasil   May 21st, 2010 4:42 pm ET

As I do not think Michael is dead, I planted sunflower seeds in my garden ... I'm hoping they bloom ... My gift to Michael ... I placed all my love these sunflowers

God bless you
I L.O.V.E you so much


anna   May 21st, 2010 4:42 pm ET

I think that Michael's children, mother Katherine and the rest of his family want and should be there on June 25th. It's the most important day just for them, for his beloved ones. We, Michael's fans, we gotta be humble! I miss him so much... ;(

Candy°°   May 21st, 2010 5:16 pm ET

As someone mentioned on the other blog, there is one other famous cemetery in Paris, called Pere Lachaise, which became more like a park where visitors and tourists can walk around and maybe light a candle, leave a flower, or just walk around alone with one's own thoughts ... It's a very peaceful place, you really don't have the feeling you are in a cemetery.

And nobody there thinks there is something wrong with visiting celebrity's graves ... it's really a very special feeling one experiences while there.

Why shouldn't something similar be OK for MJ? People would visit such a site to pay their respects, to show their love and maybe find some peace for themselves as well. I really can't understand why some of you reject that so strongly.

Do you know how small and lost among others, Chopin's thumb in Pere Lachaise is? And still candles are twinkling and fresh flowers are decorating the old grave site. How can that be wrong?

I don't think Michael would like those voices wishing him to remain alone and isolated in a cold empty hall – he longed to be surrounded by love ...

And I guess LMP's message with the sun-flowers was quite clear in that respect as well ...

Apropos sun-flowers, I've also seeded some, and they are now growing so nicely – can't wait to see them blossom 🙂

Lisa   May 21st, 2010 5:23 pm ET

The families with relatives buried there should be the ones deciding, not the fans. They are not family and cannot imagine what it would be like. I dont think it is necessary for fans to watch a place where the body once was put. The soul of Michael Jackson is not there anyway.

Judie   May 21st, 2010 5:24 pm ET

They need to keep it private as ~Michael~ was a private person.
Not all visitors could be fans.Let him RIP.
I posted this on the bloggy Wed night old news as I was tweeting with Randy.

*Seven*   May 21st, 2010 5:30 pm ET

They gave their goodness to the world so that everyone who sees a sunflower will know that the golden light of peace is beautiful.

Sunflowers have become the symbol of a world free of nuclear weapons. After Ukraine gave up its last nuclear warhead,
the Defense Ministers of the U.S., Russia, and Ukraine
met on a former Ukrainian missile base, June 4, 1996.

Kristy Lynn   May 21st, 2010 5:40 pm ET

I believe Michael should be left to rest in peace. I prefer to remember Michael as the King of Pop on top of the world. This would be way too sad for me to handle. I’m sure if it is opened many people will show up because I’m sure it will somehow make them feel closer to Michael.

How wonderful that so many sunflowers were sent by all of the loving fans. However, I do not hold much respect for Lisa Marie Presley. I have viewed her interview with Oprah after she and Michael divorced and what she and her mother said about him was heartless. She probably once loved Michael and I’m sure she grieved like all of us, but she cannot take back her hateful words.

How do the believers feel about this? I very interested in knowing.

smitm   May 21st, 2010 5:50 pm ET

I would love to visit the tomb so that I can say my respects and maybe it would be cathartic for me. I still grieve greatly over the passing of Michael! I have NEVER felt this way about any other star and sometimes feel silly but there has never been anyone like Michael and I'm sure there won't be another like him in my lifetime. I think saying a proper goodbye would help with the deep grief that I feel for him.

I love that idea of sending a silk flower to Michael's grave site in Forest Lawn Cemetery!!! I would need the address in order to send one to Michael.

Apparently they did try to help Michael BEFORE he died Susan. They didnt have any luck.

Mary-Jane   May 21st, 2010 8:00 pm ET

@ Pixie Dust

I am with you on this issue. My concern is that it would end up a "3 ring circus" with thousands of fans swarming everywhere.

He lives on in our hearts, our souls and our minds, just like any loved one we lost! Must there be anything more?

Anne   May 21st, 2010 8:10 pm ET

Michael Jackson should receive the honor and respect in death that he so deserved in life. He should have his own separate burial site for fans to visit and leave flowers at every day. MJ should still be alive. Members of the legal and medical professions as well as journalists are responsible for his death. His death should not be hidden away from public view and consciousness. Our society should be made to confront its role in his death.

Shelli Misoyianis   May 21st, 2010 8:40 pm ET

Goodness, that would definitely be a sight....thousands of people herding into a private mausoleum to see a tomb that does not exist. What is Randy's point here? Hmmmm.....trying to figure it out, unless Michael plans to jump out of the hat that day right there. If so, I hope he has a personal U-Haul truck on hand to help him cart away all those beautiful sunflowers everybody will be bringing to him.

~Michael is Alive~ 🙂

so in death let him be

i believe i will be there its all or love love is free

Mothermaybe   May 21st, 2010 9:04 pm ET

Sending flowers, cards and/or a dedication on TV should be enough. Let him Rest In Peace. This would give his children and the family some memories of how his fans still love him.

maggie   May 21st, 2010 9:42 pm ET

It looks a little isolating and lonely there and yet we can understand the security concerns that there would be if Michael was buried elsewhere......its a pity.RIP Michael

MourningMJ   May 21st, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Posted this at Susan's
My feeling remains...

Let the family weep on the stone on which Mihcael is buried under, leaving it unscathed by strangers fingerprints. Michael’s footprints are forever in our hearts.

Support this to be the one safe haven that Michael could lay in peace surronded by “I love yous” and “I miss yous” from the ones that created him (his parents); the ones that he grew from childhood into adulthood (his siblings) with and the ones that he created (his children).

Michael’s soul is everywhere. But the house in that MJ’s body now resides should remain sacred to those who witnessed the cries of his birth… and the cries of his death.

MJs Tink   May 21st, 2010 9:54 pm ET

First of all~ If someone is dead, their soul doesn't hang out at their grave all lonely, waiting for someone to visit and bring flowers. Their soul is visiting with their loved ones at home or hanging out with Jesus and other people who have passed. Fans wouldn't be disturbing his "peace". And unless they went their with sledgehammers, nobody is getting a piece of him. Just my 2 cents.

Anywhoooo~ Michael is Alive~ and I will be there!

MJs Tink   May 21st, 2010 9:58 pm ET

So now you believe Michael is dead
Why the change that resides in your head

MourningMJ   May 21st, 2010 10:12 pm ET

MJ's Tink-

I didn't realize that you were following Michael's family around nor assigned to report on their everyday activities. You really must have a full schedule. And your statement, "hanging out with Jesus"??? You may want to rethink that one- Jesus doesn't "hang out". And perhaps you would benefit from researching the word "peace"- That is the place where there is no chaos or dysfunction- the opposite of Michael's life.

Additionally, do not assume that it will all be MJ fans in attendance. Opening Michael's gravesite is an invitation for everyone- including those who still believe Michael was a pedophile, to come and desocrate his resting place. People are violent and drenched in ill will and will sabatoge this kind of opportunity. So yes, sledgehammers, spray paint, stones and other destructive weapons should be considered. Thieves as well.

i did not come and rattle your tree
so why dont you just leave me be

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

This will be great because fans don't have a place to pay their respects to MJ. Michael always was alone. Why now has to be still alone? He loved his fans and woul appreciate their flowers and
visits to his grave. Thank you Randy for your effort and Lisa Marie.

MourningMJ   May 21st, 2010 10:51 pm ET


Wow- Well, I'm not here to argue nor give you a lesson on Christ either, but FYI- Jesus is everywhere at once. "Jesus and spare time"? Jesus is "always" so your spare time comment doesn't make sense- Are you incinuating that Jesus earns comp time or something? Like he answered prayers in His spare time therefore forefeits criseses when others fall on their knees to Him?

Just please think about what you want to say before you post it especially to me, MJ's Tink- You and I have both been posting here a very long time and you know when I am addressed I will reply and sometimes will reply with fury- especially when Michael is concerned but more over when Jesus/God are used as a weapon and not a shield.

I stand by what I say, and if you "believe" in whatever it is you believe in, then good luck with all that. You can be there, I'm not sure where there is, but I know I'm not going there so I hope you are in good company.

Very well said MMJ. Michael's resting place is for his family.
We, the fans are just We can honor Michael in so many other ways that would not only please him, but his family.

Spend that day with someone less fortunate than we are. These people walk among us everyday. Volunteer at shelter, at a school, donate to one of Michael's favorite charities. Instead of standing at his grave crying, do something. If we are true fans we know this is what Michael would do.

Brownie   May 22nd, 2010 1:22 am ET

There are good points on both sides of this question.

However, the fact that a family member is making this request to allow not just FANS access, but others that were close to Michael that weren't family – it would allow them to visit as well.

I wouldn't be able to be there on June 25th to visit Michael; however, I wish I could be there. So I feel those that can should be allowed to peacefully visit and represent those of us that cannot.

Micahel gave so much of himself to the world asking nothing in return. People that hear Michael's words and messages of Peace and love, deserve this opportunity.

Michael's Peace & Love is in my heart and will always be . His dream of a world of complete Peace will happen – it is achievable.

This request that Randy is making is out of love and we need love to find Peace in the world. Nothing would warm Michael's heart more than for the world to be filled with Love and Peace and to begin on June 25 th what better day if not today if not now.

Elvis Presley and John Lennon and Mr Jackson were 3 of the most important and influential musicians of my time.

Fans are allowed to visit Elvis Presley's grave site everyday.

Why was Mr Jackson buried in a place where no one is allowed?

As One of the most influential people we know why can we, his fans, be allowed to pay our respects? I have never heard of anyone causing problems over Elvis's site and I feel as Mr Jackson loved his fans and his fans made him the happiest why is he placed in such a lonely isolated place?

Whether or not I believe he is alive or not, I do think the choice of internment was wrong as has been proven over the last months.

There should be a place where those who believe he is gone, can go and pay thier respects and not have to stand outside a barred door.

Mr Jackson would never have agreed to a barred door. He never would have agreed to such an isolated, barren, solitary confinment.

@Cindee – yes I agree with your post, he fought loneliness and wanted so much just to be loved and accepted. If anyone knows him, it would be Randy, so if Randy is wanting to do this for the fans, I think he is trying to do what MJ would have wanted. This article is about what Randy is trying to do, he is not asking us our permission whether the fans can visit or not. If you believe the article, please respect what Randy is trying to do, after all it is HIS brother. The family can do what it wants and we really should not make it our business to tell them how they should deal with their loved ones.

SuzieQ   May 22nd, 2010 12:38 pm ET

Carie, great post at 7:58!! Full of truths ... Those who truly care for Michael would never make fun of his resting place. It is beyond outrageous!

It's a long weekend in my country 🙂 I'll be gone for a few days, but I wanted you to know that the feeling is reciprocal 🙂 Love you too, and hope you're managing to get some rest. When I had mine, "sleep" suddenly became the most important and desired thing in life LOL. Still, I remember those days very fondly. It's all worth it in the end. Have a wonderful weekend!

MJ doesn't owe anyone anything.

If he is dead and buried at forest lawn then let him rest in peace.
The media/tabloids and fans who were hysterical, ran after him, grabbed at him, screamed at him need to bog off and go away.

That you tube footage where fans are trying to get into the place and giving a commentary on their phone sickens me they need to get psychiatric help.

Priscilla has made a mint out of everyone trooping past Elvis grave.

I don't dislike LMP but she had her chance with MJ if he had been my husband I would have had loads of children with him. I would not have gone on diane sawyer being disrespectful.

carie   May 22nd, 2010 1:02 pm ET

gently weeps
"Mr Jackson would never have agreed to a barred door. He never would have agreed to such an isolated, barren, solitary confinment."

That was his entire life...not chosen by him, but for him.
RIP Sweet Michael.

christine canada   May 22nd, 2010 1:52 pm ET

Wow, there have been some extremely well-articulated opinions. I agree with Anita that this idea for MJ's grave is coming from the right place in Randy's heart, however I do think that it should remain private. Michael was a private person; I think he can feel the love of his fans from heaven. Leave him in peace.

Even with the incredible outpouring of love for Michael, it really saddens me to think that there are still so many haters out there. As Mourning MJ pointed out, it is dreadful to think of the gut-wrenching things that could happen to his gravesite. Of course that would just pave the way for more negative publicity for Michael.

Since Michael's passing, I think more people have questioned the media's cruel and inaccurate reporting on him. The best possible thing would be for the accusers to publicly admit that they lied. Unlikely, but you never know. Even that, however, won't rid the world from other publicity-seeking trouble makers. So often bad behaviour seems to be rewarded.

As Sandyhouston mentioned, there are so many ways to honour Michael. We can honour him AND make the world a better place.

If only MJ were still here!

mariam   May 22nd, 2010 4:21 pm ET

I watched MJ the legacy and it was really nice it shows respect to the king of pop. It is out on DVD. I don't know if they sell it in the US but it is distributed in arab countries. We really think MJ was disected by the media and we don't believe the sensationalized stories about MJ and his family. I would like to send me regards to the Jackson Family and say to them that the whole world is watching and is waiting for justice for MJ. The justice he deserved when he was alive.

Arifa   May 22nd, 2010 4:26 pm ET

I don't see why there is anything wrong as long as it is just for a day.Michael loved his fans deeply and shared his whole life with them.Michael gave all he had to all his fans who stood by if this is what they need to get closure then so be it.At the end of it,it is Michael's family who knew him best so if they feel this is something they need to do,they should go ahead. We LOVE You MJ.You have made so many people smile.RIP.

Michael Jackson is Dead. What do you expect. That he will jump out from under the stone and start singing and dancing? Wake up! Dead is just that. Dead! This is not an illusion. This is a delusion. No wonder your country is struggling. I am sure Elvis fans are still waiting for him to be resurrected.

Earl Richmond-– Don't think so.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 22nd, 2010 10:25 pm ET

Michael is NOT Elvis Presley, no-one ever said he was, get a grip. But one thing is for certain, he was his son-in-law at one time. There will always be a connection with them.

Michael is the King of Pop and Elvis is the King of Rock and Roll (The Two Kings of Entertainment in their time and forever). No one can match them ever.

This is great news to hear that MJ's grave will be open to the public and hopefully those Sunflowers will be there too to brighten the place.

Michael was on the public stage for most of his life and in the public eye........... and he loved his fans and the world..........that it seems only fitting that this be done to honour him.

Marguerite   May 22nd, 2010 10:44 pm ET

I would think that only the respectful fans would be welcome at Forest Lawn. The disrespectful ones can do themselves a favour and stay away thank you.

mary u from ohio   May 23rd, 2010 12:04 am ET

Can't believe fans are Discussing a grave site...There is more going on in life then spending time on whether Forest Lawn should open the gates to fans or not...
With all these Talks of things happening... has any of it came true... look you waited for him to appear on the Jacksons show that didn't happen , What about April waiting for him to appear... & That Murray was going to jail that didn't happen...
Let go of the Man... Let him Move on.. The Fans need to move on...

gigi   May 20th, 2010 11:58 pm ET
even though Randy is sweet to consider the fans to have 1 day to go inside. I just don't want Randy adding any more stress if he's not able to get the ok from FL and other family members who may have loved ones there.
gigi   May 21st, 2010 7:48 pm ET
well i found out today that a supposed fan sold pics of MJ's resting place to tmz! which has been tweeted and retweeted throughout today. also, just a few minutes ago a lady sent a tweet to Faye saying that she has seen suspicious FL security guard behavior wth photographing "fans" at FL.


so, this is why i believe that it would not be a good idea for people to have access inside FL even if it was one day. i'll voice the same has i need a few hours ago in my tweet. someone will act ignorant & do a 180 selling pics 2 tmz.
Quote from Mrs. Katherine herself and her wish for her son " take comfort in knowing that there often our son will be undisturbed by prying fans and press" Time Magazine


i'll say again so much of Michael's life was a constant open book. where sadly some people took advantage of and franking just went way too far. case in point this supposed "fan" who would then go and sale pics to a tabloid. i know majority of fans would love the ability to see Michael's resting place and pay their respects, but i'm afraid it would be overshadowed; because in the end someone will always have money on their mind. i say it would better all around if access is just for the family and legit close friends. than risk some ignorant person(s) who don't know how to show some decorum and turn right around and sell pics for ill gotten gains.

care bear   May 23rd, 2010 1:38 am ET

@Mary u

I still believe that Michael is coming back " in his own time". Do not give up, keep the faith. Lots of puzzle pieces have already come together. 🙂 Michael is alive and he will be back.

Thank you. Well said.

Letta, how are you? I hope you've had a good week. 🙂 Keep the faith, never stop believing.

We have been provided with all the clues to know that Michael is still with us, and that he intends to come back. 🙂

cindee   May 23rd, 2010 3:13 am ET

That nobody wanted to be mortal that everybody wanted to be
immortal including himself...Well I think he achieved immortality in his lifetime he was bigger than
life itself....and BOY did he love his fans and We loved him back.............................................
I wonder if he knew what a Giant Cultural Iconic Genious he had became while he was here on
Earth .?Did he have any idea that the world would stop for the day when he passed( and for days after)
My point is Michael was a Giant and everything he did was grandiose extravagant and magnificient
(example Neverland 2500 acres of incredibly beautiful rolling hills)
Holly Terace is a dim and soundless part of the Great Mausoleum where MJ is entombed in this unwelcoming
massive marble retangle(sans rien) It's as if he's been banished into obscurity with no contact with
the very people he loved .Afterall it was the Paparazzi Tabloids and Media with their distorted facts
that made his life a living hell
for those of you that say leave him alone in peace ,That's the last thing he wanted ,was to
be " alone" He fought lonliness all his adult life and demonstrated that through out his lifetime always
travelling with his entourage of friends children and associates surrounding him wherever he
went. I'm not a fan of Randy Jackson But I believe that his idea is from the heart
visiting MJ 2 or 3 times a year would be just what Michael would've wanted...
(he didn't like over exposure)
and I'll go further to say : Michael deserves his own Shrine(Monument) that's more accessible
ornate and befitting of a King that he was .Either there at Forest Lawn or in his own back yard
I lived in France for many years and would take walks through Pere LaChaise cemetery
some of the worlds most famous people are buried there in the most incredibly beautiful
tombs and monuments open to the public

Jim Morrison( there's always a pile of cigarettes)
Josephine Baker
Sarah Bernhardt
Maria Callas
Edith Piaf
Marcel Marceau
Frederic Chopin
Oscar Wilde (fans kiss his grave wearing lipstick, it's a cult thing)
Monet (home is open to the public and buried in the local church cemetery)
the list goes on and on
And of course Elvis Presley is buried at Graceland
Sammy Davis at Forest Lawn
and on and on


Angel Pie   May 23rd, 2010 3:19 am ET

Very interesting.... At least 1 brother got it right in where his brother is buried...right there in Forest Lawn in Glendale. Can't say much for the other brothers who went to the Hollywood one. Unless...
1) MJ is buried in 2 places taking turns { always good to change scenery}
2) MJ is not there {because he is alive}
3) MJ is not there but with all those Sunflowers I expect a bunch of Munchkins popping out and singing "Follow The Yellow Brick Road"

@ Shelli –
Your post was right on. Glad you made me laugh on that. Forget about U-Haul that is alot of Sunflower Seeds =)

@Everyone –
Yes no doubt Michael is at peace probably sitting in front of a TV with a remote control eating some Mexican Food.

This is something I read I think its interesting
35 reasons to believe that Michael Jackson is still alive!
Thursday, August 20, 2009 11:31 PM

He was great and rehearsing 3 days before the "death";
The ambulance took firefighters nearly an hour to remove the "body" of your house to the hospital, even knowing that no more complex procedure could be done in residence;
His doctor was missing for two days after the "announcement" of death.
Closed coffin (or the Pope's coffin was closed all the time);
Nobody in the family cried for real. Neither could pretend, including a young daughter – forced to say something;
Debts monumental.
Shades of constant use, were used to prepare the look-alike who was sick and terminally ill, while Michael took care to provide a new face, to live anonymous hereafter.
Who called 911 was too quiet.
In August he went or will release a song called RESSUREIÇÃO!
Nobody know where his body was taken after the memorial.
Doctors do not speak the cause of death.
The U.S. president who was a fan of the star only ruled on the fact a week later.
A physician who abandons her own career to devote himself to a single patient, just when more crucial not follow his "unique" patient to the hospital?
Why the name of MJ was not mentioned in the link?
The delay in the autopsy report, nor in the IML of Rio de janeiro ( brazilian city ) where everything works the coal ... it's so difficult to recognize an overdose?
After the ceremony the family "mourning" was to "celebrate" a bustling restaurant.
Before he arrived at the hospital on CNN just gave Michael as dead.
Leaves a will in which a fund manager and managing partner.
In the U.S. there is a law that if they try to kill two or three times you can change your identity and to forge his own death.
A large stock of things he (MJ) was auctioned to pay debts was bought by a supposed anonymous collector.
For someone who does not show since 2006 would have a tour scheduled, coincidentally, for about a week after his death?
The plan had already been mapped long, as shown in the lyrics of her song Morphine, which talks about cardio attack, morphine and Demerol on the remedy.
In emergency call at any time the name of Michael Jackson was quoted, just a "man who was ill."
Elizabeth Taylor, who was a close friend, said the memorial event was a "circus."
A possibly empty coffin was presented in the show's farewell news conference where tickets were not charged, "who was wanted. Nobody can contest anything in court.
Workers in the United States border with Mexico, say Jackson and an unidentified man had left the country on the night of his death.
His death certificate says only that the dead is a dead black man because of still undefined.
Products related to Michael Jackson concerts that should occur at the O2 Arena in London, are being traded normally – even after death.
The businessman and partner not go to the funeral, even the physician is present.
After the funeral, instead of leading the coffin to the cemetery with him gone!
In connection to the emergency, the caller says that man is lying unconscious in bed, and the doctor tried to revive him. A person trained in medicine would not know that cardiac massage should be done on a hard surface?
Before 'die', sign a contract for a series of presentations. He says he has not read the contract, undertakes to 50 shows, thinking they were only 10.
Michael even used fake names to get the medication that 'needed'.
It is known that for some time now, Michael was wearing mannequins and even the look-pra mislead the press.
Before he reached the hospital the police were already there prohibiting the passage of all.

" Sorry for my english, but I'm brazilian, and I hope help with this list with all these suspicions, some already talked for you. "
thanks. C.C.

I think this Movie, Or if want to call it a Book this Chapter is almost closed..
Lets see from the reports.... They tried to make Jermaine look bad...
But that didn't happen... They said about Mike writing Post in notes... nothing bad with that... I write post in notes & so do others...
Mike had Gay Friends... So what... I have gay friends too ...
So they couldn't destroy him with that...
Every time they tried to make it out that mike is weird... they failed...
Mike is one of us..
a human Being...

Diane in Minneapolis   May 23rd, 2010 10:21 am ET

@ Miriam

Thank you for your perspective from outside the US. I hope more countires view MJ as you describe and that they take a dim view of our tabloid trash media. The truth needs to come out.

Beverly - Chicago   May 23rd, 2010 12:46 pm ET

It's a good thing I really don't have much to say this weekend or I would find the way the blog is running extremely frustrating. I'm not sure what the objective is here with the slowness of the blog but somehow it doesn't see right or the way a typical blog should function!

Thank you This is it! for your always beautiful poems!

As far as opening up Forest Lawn on 25June for the fans – if Michael were actually dead – (sorry! I just don't think he is) I would say that this idea of Randy's is a very nice idea or gesture but the reality of doing it, I'm not too sure about. It might prove not to be such a good idea for a variety of reasons. It is a very nice thought or gesture, however.

* Milky Way *   May 23rd, 2010 12:47 pm ET

If they let me, then I'll bring red roses to the grave
Michael, if you do not allow roses, then just quietly weep ,....
If you do not allow anything, then when I die, then I'll go find
Michael there .... and I sure to find ....
Without Michael's sad, cold and lonely in this world....(((

Beverly - Chicago   May 23rd, 2010 1:09 pm ET

I mean allowing access to Michael's "tomb" or mausoleum. Not opening Forest Lawn in general.

Lori-Justice for Michael   May 23rd, 2010 1:12 pm ET

I have longed for access to Michael’s tomb to pay my final respects. I think it would bring me closure.

I have contemplated my feelings about the possibility of having access to his final resting place ever since I received Randy Jackson’s tweets about the matter. There is much to consider.

While I appreciate Randy’s efforts on behalf of the fans, I wonder if the entire Jackson Family is on board with this idea. What does Mrs. Katherine Jackson think? I expect, as family matriarch, that she would have to be the one seeking permission for this. I also wonder if the Administers of the Estate would have to be considered about this. Did Randy have Mrs. Katherine’s blessing to go forward with this idea? Why Tweet his intentions in advance of any decision. Is Randy trying to rally the troops for support? As with many Jackson Family events, there is a lot of red tape and many hoops to jump through before anything is accomplished.

Forest Lawn is known for its beauty, privacy and security. That is why families choose it for their departed loved ones. Michael Jackson is not the only resident of the Holly Terrace, the Grand Mausoleum, let alone Forest Lawn. How will these people feel about the exposure of their privacy if Michael Jackson fans are allowed access to his tom? There could be millions of fans waiting and wanting their turn to pay their respects. There could also be others with less than honorable intentions. Those that would want a “souvenir” or a memento, photographs, something, which will likely end up as an EBay auction. I can imagine what all the social networking sites will look like as everyone posts their photographs and comments on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. This too, will be an unprecedented media event.

Who will pay for the additional security? Who will pay for the clean up that will inevitably follow after fans leave their tributes at his tomb? Is Forest Lawn prepared to handle the influx of millions of MJ fans? What is the impact on other gravesites? Other families? What is the impact on Forest Lawn with such a dramatic increase in attendance? Would access to Michael Jackson’s tomb be safe? Secure? Appropriate?

I would love to say goodbye to Michael at his resting place, and perhaps have closure. But that makes it about me. Not about Michael or his family.

There is much to consider in this decision. It will affect many, many people. What is in the best interests of Michael’s memory? What will bring the most peace to his children and family? This is a family matter. It should not be decided by popular vote or a TMZ poll on the subject. This should be only a matter for the family to decide. They choose privacy and security a year ago. Has anything really changed now for them to reconsider that decision? As always I support the Jackson Family. Whatever happens, will happen. I pray for Michael and his family. And I pray for Justice.

so hold on tight and be prepared
he is the one who dreamed and dared

Katie from Brazil   May 23rd, 2010 4:36 pm ET

I love that idea of sending a silk flower to Michael's grave site in Forest Lawn Cemetery!!! I would need the address in order to send one to MJ.
They need to keep it private as ~Michael~ was a private person.
Not all visitors could be fans.
I would think that only the respectful fans would be welcome at Forest Lawn. The disrespectful ones can do themselves a favour and stay away thank you.

Just a thought – if you want to send sunflowers perhaps it would be best to send the joker variety of sunflowers which looks like the type Lisa Marie sent. Here's a brief explanation of the Joker sunflower : 'The Joker' is pollen-free and has a large, double bloom. If you can imagine a star at the end of its life exploding and creating a supernova in red and yellow, that's what this magnificent flowerhead looks like.

Hello Everyone! I hope all of you had a wonderful Sunday 🙂 !

As for the topic at hand. I've already expressed my views on this matter. I don't think opening Michael's resting place to the public is a good idea. Although I would love to have the opportunity of visiting Michael, he deserves his privacy. Something that he couldn't get in life. Just imagine the press that would be lingering/hovering around this site. TMZ, Diane Dimond, Nancy Grace etc. The same individuals that contributed to his death would be allowed access to his moseleum? Nope! I don't like it! Bad Idea! Leave Michael Jackson Alone!

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 23rd, 2010 9:41 pm ET


I think Believers/Non-Believers.........we are all playing the waiting game now. What is going to eventuate, what is going to happen next.

@*seven* my friend so true

you shake a tree a lie will fall
but always the truth will stand tall
so lets take out all the rotten trees today
and plant new ones right away
ones that thrive in natures glow
the seeds of truth is what i will sow

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

This is it!   May 23rd, 2010 10:17 pm ET

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for love with peace to keep,
A cry to feel a hug so tight,
A hunger to have with food in sight,
The joy to fill an empty soul,
The spirit of grace to keep one whole,
A dream with passion to come alive,
A angel flying to weave and guide,
The blind to see the light again,
The sorrow to leave and say amen,
A journey with hope to never die,
A compasion in the heart for all and I,
The hand to share and always give,
The heart to beat to always forgive,
A love for life so endlessly,
A blessing for all, prayer to he!

Bless You All~

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 23rd, 2010 10:23 pm ET

That is right. In the beginning we were meant to live forever, to never die......but because sin entered and changed everything.......of which the wages of sin is DEATH! That's why we die.

Admitttedly, no-one wants to die really. It is inherent in us from the time we are born. I remember in the interview Michael gave with Martin Bashir.........where the talk about death came about..........and Michael said he did not want to be buried, that he wanted to live forever. He is right in some respects. As I have mentioned before........deep down we would all like to live forever. Death is a horrible thing.

But, don't despair........there is the scriptural hope........where DEATH will be no-more. Everything will be made new again........a new beginning. This new beginning is not in the far distant future, I believe. It is even at the doors. Closer than we think. Look up!

if he should show or if he should hide
the most crucified man on earth
a new begining a new rebirth
maybe for now he is in protection
he will choose on a ressurrection
and i just know i will be true
its something i will always do
there is nothing more for him to give
its time he took his life to live
and if it is a life that is free
i hope it is the life he see
and i will always believe in him
he will always be my one true king

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

@ dazzle....Sounds like a beautiful flower and what a great description! I recently planted my own sunflowers (in honor of Michael Jackson) and I'm really looking forward to watching them grow! I'll have to check out my local florist for " the joker sunflower ". I can't imagaine the sunflower being anymore beautiful, thx!

christine canada   May 23rd, 2010 10:41 pm ET

@ pat davis & Lori
I agree with your views which are extremely well-expressed.
It would be wonderful to visit Michael – but I don't believe it could be done.

Maria Copelli   May 23rd, 2010 10:44 pm ET

Jessie,How I Loved your comment ,and yes Michael weell knew of this beautiful Promise ! I am sure this is why he so humbly said 'I want to Live Forever', during that interview.You see once you have this wonderful hope and believe,it becomes a part of your Life ,and it is so deep in ones heart! Michael was taught these things since he was a youth ,and he never forgot them! It is truly Good news!
Love to you ,Maria C.

@ Katie from Brazil May 23rd, 2010 4:36 pm ET

Please find below part of the message that Michael's ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley sent. You will find the address to send the flowers to –


I know how much he loved and appreciated being showered with Gifts and flowers by his fans , I thought if whoever wants to bought just one silk sunflower each and sent it , the whole area around him and in front of him (As well as the two large empty vases that sit on either side of him) could be filled up in no time , which would be much more appropriate than what the current status is right now.
We can all cause a "Sun shower" if you will...........
He deserves to be flooded and surrounded , LETS SURROUND HIM!
Lots of Love,

There are two Forest Lawns in LA which is confusing,
Below is the correct address to send them to:

The Holy Terrace At Forest Lawn
1712 South Glendale Avenue
Glendale Calif, 91205

Hey buddy 🙂 I'm with you on this article...I don't know what to say about this either.

But I can say I love you Michael. 🙂

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 23rd, 2010 11:28 pm ET

I have just googled pictures of the joker I was very curious to see what it actually looked I have never heard of it before. It looks like an amazing variety itself. I know you can probably get miniature versions of the sunflower too of the original variety that grow real tall and large like giants.

I grew some giant sunflowers once and found them easy to grow. Amazing plants. They have got a lot of character.

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 23rd, 2010 11:29 pm ET

@jessie my friend so true

i dare for someone to challenge me
to change my mind will never be
when i know that i am right
tooth and nail i will fight
and they can call me any name
but i will still believe the same
because my mind belongs to me
and no one tells me what to see
and anyway from the start
the truth is right here in my heart

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

Carebear, Letta, Angel Pie,

Thank you for liking my post, dear Friends! It's true! 😀 😀 Forest Lawn would never allow thousands of people into a place as peaceful and sacred as the Holly Terrace to view a tomb that absolutely does not exist. 100000000000% does NOT exist. 😉 Like the tributes, I think this is another hoax within a hoax. lol.


Great post about the joker sunflower! 😀 I have never heard of that kind before! What a GORGEOUS sight to behold, I'm sure! Thanks! 😀 oxoxox

Neighbor Maria, Maura, Marguerite, TRUE, Butterfly, Tay, Jessie, Pixie Dust, Seven, etc... 😀

Hey there, dear Friends! 😀 Glad to see you all, and I pray you have a beautiful week ahead! Of sunshine and bright blue skies...and maybe a sunflower or two. 😉 ~Blessings~ oxoxox

AND A BIG SHOUT-OUT TO MISS SHERLOCK HOLMES HERSELF HELEN! Wherever you may be! Hope to see you again soon, GURLLL! The sun is out, the flowers are all in bloom.... 😉 😀 oxoxox

~Michael is Alive~

Marguerite   May 24th, 2010 12:37 am ET

pat davis   May 24th, 2010 12:46 am ET

@ Jessie....I agree on the sunflower having a lot of character. I guess that's why they're Michael's favorite flower. I think it is very important to continue posting the address to send flowers for those who may have missed it.

@ Maria C....Hi Maria 🙂 ....It's nice to see you here! I always enjoy your post. You're so sweet and you always have something positive to add that makes me smile 🙂 .

@ Shelli....Hi there Shelli! I hope you have a great week as well, filled with sunshine and blue skies...and maybe a sunflower or two 🙂 .

Hello Everyone

Hello how are u doing? Hope that all is well with you and your health? I am doing fine now, Thank for asking. Although it did start off having bad week with treatments, but it has got a little better. Which is due to my fault for not doing what I were suppose to do.

Shelli Misoyianis   May 24th, 2010 1:27 am ET


Thanks!! 😀 And good luck with your sunflowers! Hope they all grow up nice, tall, and handsome like Michael! Hope you find the joker, too! lol 😀 😀

@Shelli M
Hello again, Thank you for your comment. I like what you had to say about the tomb and jumping out. LOL

Hello girl, Thank you for your comment. Well, I don't know what to say when I believe that Michael is ALIVE. So, that leave me blank...but hey doing this for fans, not sure about that either. So, I am left with no words.

@Beverly -Chicago
I understand what you mean about this blog. Some of the posts get lost in moderation or better yet they come after one forgot about what they was saying. I be so glad when the blog can go back to normal again.


care bear   May 24th, 2010 2:20 am ET

The blog is moving again. Sorry for posting essentially the "same" comment. It seemed my posts weren't making it to the blog, but it now appears, they were only delayed. I apologise for my confusion.

Sorry about last week, but happy to hear that you are feeling better now. I'm feeling well at this time. Thank you for asking. 🙂

Nice to see you! Have you finished your exams?

Got to LOVE those joker sunflowers. 🙂

Have you learnt anything new? Always love to read your news. 🙂

Have a Goodnight, 🙂

And i am not going in to the argumenys why i think its not possible MJ could be alive.

Love your comments about our hope for the future. It is such a beautiful promise. Every time I see that video of Michael saying that it brings a smile to my face. He knows and appreciates that hope.

keep the faith!!!!!

This is it!   May 24th, 2010 7:48 am ET

The sky is wide open,
so crisp and so blue,
The sun is awake,
so cheerful shining thru,
The birds are singing,
a blissful morning song,
The flowers are dancing,
to the beat of breezy along,
The ocean is roaring,
with a serene force,
The sand lays bare,
no need for remorse,
The mountains stand tall,
smiling of natures beauty,
The eagle flies high,
with honour, gratitude and duty!

Bless You All~

Maria Copelli   May 24th, 2010 8:16 am ET

Anytime I post smth. which is not "main stream" you do not publish it!

Wonder WHY?!?!?

Maria Copelli   May 24th, 2010 11:53 am ET

Missing m.j. Thank you for the nice comment! The difference between a human made from dust ,making promises and the ones that are made by our heavenly Father ,our like day/nite! He being the ONE who made us , has the power ,and the Desire ,and unfathomable amount of Love for all his creation! Soon the earth will be a paradise as He has promised ! These promises ,I am sure were a big part of so much that inspired Michael in many areas of his life.Why just listen to some of the words ,and one can see so many scriptural references ,which he Never ever forgot.Truly he is a Gem ,and heart bugger than those magnificent sunflowers! smile! Love Maria C. P.S. I meant to say some of the words in his songs!

"Pixie Dust "   May 24th, 2010 12:02 pm ET

I shall be back later,the day is waiting for me so I must go and conquer it. Have a great day everyone.(Smile)

Lori - Justice for Michael   May 24th, 2010 12:44 pm ET

Good morning all. There seem to be fewer and fewer regular posters now with the way the blog is being monitored. I wish things would go back to the way they were. 🙂

With regards to the possibility of MJ tomb being opened to the public, I think there are "crazy" individuals on all side of the fence. I don't think crazy is limited to what you believe. I also think their are crazy non-fans of MJ as well and haters. There are those that will go to extreme and outrageous lengths regarding Michael Jackson to obtain a piece of him, of his crypt, his fortune, his legacy, his memory, etc. JMHO, so please understand that I am not trying to start a fight with anyone. I think that there has been a lot of excessive activities going on, and again that is only JMHO.

There are always going to be individuals, groups and/or organizations that will prey on the vulnerability of the fans who want to be close to Michael, to do something in rememberance of Michael, to support his causes, his children, his family members. etc.

It just seems to me that Michael was surrounded by users in life and it hasn't changed now.

@Larry, I really wish you would allow the blog to be a bit more interactive as it was previously. While I understand the need for moderation of comments; the process takes so long now. It makes it difficult to have a discussion. But thank you for giving us blogs and for continuing them.


care bear   May 24th, 2010 12:56 pm ET

@Helen & Cris

That's hilarious.

Cris, can you offer any insights to us about the Party Bus? Thank you in advance.

Helen, Light Man briefly shows sunflowers. Memorial service bracelets appear to contain images of tiny sunflowers.

No one should feel sad. The truth has already prevailed in some respects. Party bus and sunflowers are signs of life!

Love to all, 🙂
care bear

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 24th, 2010 2:30 pm ET

a party bus my what fun
the celebration had just begun
the staples centre was the venue
now take a guess what was on the menu
the greatest show this world has seen
some what like a living dream
the memorial service got underway
carefully choosen words to say
a golden casket came in to view
an empty casket we all knew
and once the service got in full swing
many a clues it did bring
and so magnificently it was done
a perfectionist is number one
many wonder if he was there
is that a secret he will share

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

carie   May 24th, 2010 2:50 pm ET

Love to you both!! This place is horrible anymore...same five/six people with same old disrespect towards Michael's death.
We have the truth!!
And I believe Michael should be left alone...he was public property all his life, not of his choice. He needs to be allowed to rest in peace and visits kept to his family, his children. Fans do not need to touch his grave to bid him love...that can be done from anywhere!! There will never be closure for me because his death was grave site vigil will help. My mom and her friends are going to be in Vegas and LA the week of June 25...but no where near Forest Lawn. They will celebrate his legacy!! And what a hoot that will be!!!
Love you both!!!!

You are so right on!!! Too many freaks would try to do nasty things to Michael's grave...he should be left alone. And cris is not anyone but a blogger...I used to think he/she was cool, but no more.

Earl Richmond May 22nd, 2010 9:33 pm ET
Well done Mr. Richmond!!!

Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Nothing if funny about your death...know you are loved and your legacy will live on.

cris   May 24th, 2010 2:55 pm ET

Party Bus was just a limo transport service the family called. Doesn't mean anything...back from NY.

Maria Copelli   May 24th, 2010 3:44 pm ET

Carebear where can we see the Light Man briefly showing the sunflowers? and maybe a closeup of the mem bracelets? wow ,,coencidence after coencidence.... I am guessing there is a logical explanation for the 'party bus'........? nice to see ypu today ,and maybe the blogs will get abit faster? Love to you Maria C.

Helen ,nice work! How did you find this video ,I really thought I had seen it all! smile....I am sure someone can help us with this one! You have mail! nice to see you back....Love Maria C.

Candy ,sorry for the difficulties you are having! Maybe it will get cleared up soon! you are always a lot of fun ,and so pleasant ..Observant too! Love Maria C.

M.J.'S Honey ' ,wow ,that is amazing research on the tall handsome ,bright ,sunny flower ,how very fitting! Thank you for sharing this with us! Love to you Maria C.

cris   May 24th, 2010 4:15 pm ET

I'm sorry carie you feel that way. I had many friends and family argue with me this weekend over what I revealed. They are now concerned that this could eventually escalate and I am hurt that I have alienated many with my confession.

Thank you for all your hard work and information. Child sex abuse offenders “Pedophiles“ have a very high rate of recidivism. Many people choose not to believe this.

Children will continue to have visions of ‘Thomas O'Carroll’ dancing around in their ‘bed’ unless something is done!

I'll look up the video and the bracelet after I get back. Getting ready to go out for supper. You can find the Light Man video on youtube. 🙂

Candy°°   May 24th, 2010 5:10 pm ET

Amazon is only into making $$$, they don't really care how ...
As of why these kind of books are allowed in the open, this is something at least some of you can guess. Think of who are those promoting that .. and you'll know.

@cris What's hot in NY? 🙂

Sorry, maybe is just me but I really can't understand those who say they can celebrate and have fun on the 25th ...
I feel so sad and angry anytime I listen to Michael's songs ... it just brakes my heart anytime I recall what he had to go through and that people either did not care or were they not able to do anything to help.

And as a matter of fact, so many of his songs were talking rather about sad and questionable things happening within our society, so many were really an expression of anger (I can feel that not just in the words of the songs, but in the rhythm of the music as well) – I am astonished to notice how many people still do not see that ... (not talking about people here on the blog, but in general).

Remember these?

It's too high to get over (yeah, yeah)
Too low to get under (yeah, yeah)
You're stuck in the middle (yeah, yeah)
And the pain is thunder (yeah, yeah)
You're a vegetable, you're a vegetable
Still they hate you, you're a vegetable
You're just a buffet, you're a vegetable
They eat off of you, you're a vegetable ...

yeah, quite a heavy feeling isn't it?

Mary-Jane   May 24th, 2010 5:14 pm ET

@ cris

Maybe I am just gullible and if so, than the joke is on me. There is something about your story and for whatever reason, I think it is true.

I am originally from Hollywood with family in the industry. I had a family member who looked exactly like a world famous actor. He was hassled, questioned, people always asking for his autograph and even mistaken by the paparazzi every now and then. He was at the point of undergoing plastic surgery. Most of the news media knew he was not the actor; however, if spotted in a public setting, there was all kinds of chaos. One time we were at a very nice restaurant in Beverly Hills and his presence caused such commotion we had to leave. On the way out, people were snapping pictures, taking videos, screaming for his autograph. It was crazy.

And maybe because of this experience……. I believe you.

I wish you well and I admire your courage!

Vicky   May 24th, 2010 5:38 pm ET

I hope Dr. Murray gets his payback for killing Michael. I miss Michael a great deal as do many people I am sure. Its hard to believe he has been gone almost a year now. Miss you terribly Michael!!

cris   May 24th, 2010 5:50 pm ET

Thank you Mary-Jane. No you're not gullible. That would happen to me a lot. I was in Dubai last year in July and someone started a rumor that launched a website. It's a real problem because I don't get out much now and have someone do my errands for me.

No Beverly – Chicago I wasn't the informer. I'm not sure who that was, but what they were saying as far as I know is not true.

Candy°°   May 24th, 2010 6:22 pm ET

I was just reading an article on a completely different subject, but came across some few lines that perfectly apply here as well, and I challenge you to think about them:

First this: "It's easy to send a lie flying around the world, and almost impossible to shoot it down ..."

and than: "Unless we announce disasters no one will listen." (that was connected to climate change, but with a bit of imagination, you can easily extrapolate .. 🙂 )

Finally: "Falsehoods that sound plausible, can seep unquestioned into consciousness. This happens in part because we use mental short cuts to help us make sense of the world, and also because we seldom bother to check the veracity of what we are told. It has been shown that untruths that fit with such mental short cuts are more likely to be remembered as correct, even when there is no evidence they are true.

a river of tears have been cried
by many who believe the king had died
a river of tears will not bring him back
its only the truth that can do that
and piece by piece bit by bit
slowly and surely we are getting it
so save your tears look for the truth
and when he is back we will raise the roof
we will party moonwalk spin and turn
rejoicing in the truth we learn
all our voices joined all together
can change this world of hate forever
its all for love and this is true
a brand new world for me and you

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 24th, 2010 8:14 pm ET

ok this is what i will do
i am offering some help to you
i will be a mod if you like
and get this blog running right
it seems to be running slow
it needs to be on green for go
it seems someone has gone to bed
and put it on stop which is red
now red is the colour i adore
but right now i want green even more
so all you have to do is call for me
and i will let this blog run free

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

cris,I see you are back from the concrete jungle.I hope NY treated you well,at least that the lights inspiered you.Don't be sorry for what you revealed,You are probably wondering how many will run with what you said.Well I can honestly tell you what I read here stays with me.I am sure if I repeated anything I read on here people would think I lost my mind.It's all good,handsome one.(smile)

@ Candy°°

Reading your post with a careful eye......

With visions of 'mental short cuts' floating in my head.

You sound like our internet psychologist and well versed in Elizabeth Loftus techniques!

You are quite accurate and well stated!

I went around some shops in our Mall today to try and find some silk sunflowers, but no-one stocked them anymore. I saw some soft toy ones in beautiful bright colours and smiley faces though and I thought they were very cute. (Just like our dear Michael). I would love to send some of them.

Hi cris!Dont be sad about family argue.Familys alvais argue... 😀 LOL You will be over it!

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 25th, 2010 6:47 am ET

@ All

Do not stand at my grave and weep is a poem written by Mary Elizabeth Frye.

An early version, printed by others on postcards:

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Her later confirmed version:

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

What a beautiful poem.

Thank you for your kind comments and I really thought the Joker Sunflower was a joke at first until I googled it.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 25th, 2010 7:44 am ET

@ cris – Sorry to hear what has happened. You sounded quite down as I could imagine. Cheer up and :-)! Hope all will be well with you.

Maria Copelli   May 25th, 2010 8:45 am ET

Letta ,You are most welcomed! While living in Michigan 7 yrs ago ,i cleaned offices at night ,and on Sundays after our meetings at the Kingdom Hall,we cleaned a large dialysis clinic .We would bring a change of clothes get out or cleaning equipment ,turn on the radio ,and sterilise the rows of chairs ,that the patients sat in for their treatments.As we laughed and exchanged stories ,my good friend Sue and I would stop and think about the time when these places ,will be not needed ever again.We would imagine in our minds eye ,those patients ,with healthy ,perfect organs ,their bodies so wonderfully designed ,performing to their absolute best! Sheer perfection! We imagined a sign on the clinic door 'No more need for you all to be here,we are permantly CLOSED! ENJOY YOUR DAYS!' We would continue wiling down the equipment and smiling at each other ,sometimes with tears in our eyes ,because you see Letta,we believe with All our hearts this soon ,(according to Bible Prophecy ) will be a reality ! 'No more mourning,nor outcry nor pain,the former things have passed away'.Rev 21;3,4 We remebered these words as well;'No resident willsay ;'I am sick'. Isaiah 33;24
So Letta ,please take comfort in these Promises.And than you for being here ,throughout this ordeal .Michael I am sure shared these verses many times,and I am sure ,this is part of the reason,we Love him as we do! You take care ,drink a lot of Pure fruit juices! Mr A. gently reminded you to do! Good Have a nice sunny day .Love and hugs to you Letta ..Love Maria C. P.S. SORRY FOR TYPOS!

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 25th, 2010 10:19 am ET

@michipato my friend so true

the sun is shining bright for me
a sunflower shower is what i see
11 months its been a while
do not frown keep your smile
we miss our king it is true
so send him love is what we do
you know in time he will be back
the biggest joker in the pack
piece by piece bit by bit
could it be this is it

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

"Pixie Dust "   May 25th, 2010 10:45 am ET

Sending lots of smiles to cris and all.I will be back this afternoon.Maybe when I return we can take a walk down memory lane and share some wonderful memories of Michael.I love you Micheal (Smile)

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 25th, 2010 11:00 am ET

eleven months it is now
from when you took that farewell bow
i do not believe it was a final goodbye
but i feel so sad and this is why
no childhood did you see
you sacrificed so selflessly
the stage became a home to you
your education and your school
you watched and learnt from the best
becoming greater you passed that test
with precious talent that you shared
you gave your love you showed you cared
but some others did not care like you
to bring you down they tried to do
to take your life and shame your name
so full of hate they gave you pain
they trampled thru your heart and home
they just would not leave you alone
so innocent and childlike
they did not think that you could fight
the truth is what you held on to
and this is what is coming thru
you are the one who knows for certain
is it for them that final curtain
and as this rhyme comes to an end
all my love to you i send
hold your hand i will always do
you rock my world and this is true
no need to ask do i care
you have my love i will be there

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

mariam   May 25th, 2010 11:24 am ET

Hi All,

Hi Maria,
Thanks for your kind comments.
I would like to tell you a story I was having a rough phase in my marriage and MJ news and songs uplifted me and made me get through the storm. Even though I may not want to live with this person anymore. MJ's music and love of life has given me an example of how one should be strong. I have learned that you should be strong whatever you face. I wish he is alive and would like to meet him one day or even Janet. It is really my dream. I have been a fan of their for forty years and they have been around all my stages of life. I started with abc as a child and then as a teenager grew up with thats what you get for being polite from the destiny album. Shes out of my life with an unsuccessful relationship. Bad when I needed the courage. Beat it when I wanted to fight back. I just can't stop loving you when I fell in love. Finally Remember the time when I got older. Michael's music is the story book of my life. I'm sure its your story book too.
Keep the faith and spread his word. All we need in life is kindness and compassion. I hope he has escaped the horrible life he was living and is happier somewhere else. We are waiting for him so he should know the whole world would like him to come back and if hes dead we will pray for him. Jacksons please let us know the truth.

Maria Copelli   May 25th, 2010 11:45 am ET

michipato,WOW ! Thanks so mch for sharing the Sunshine! Yes these must be Michaels favorite flowers,it is evident in the video! undeniable.....the wristbands ,the flower on the judges podium,etc,etc..! I feel this flower is represntative of so many things.One thing is for sure ,it totally reflects Michael's beauty ,inside and out! And once those that Love him,find out he likes something .....he has it ! You see no one can seperate us from the ones we L.O.V.E. !
Love and thanks again! Maria C.

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 25th, 2010 12:29 pm ET

Maria Copelli   May 25th, 2010 12:42 pm ET

mariam,thank oyu for sharing your thoughts! yes I too grew up with The Jackson's! And like you so many of Michael's songs have got me thru and around some happy and sad times.This is the power of music,this is the power of self sacrifice ,this is the power in believing in a Brighter tomorrow ,and Yes most of all it is the Power of LOVE.....I Loved your comment ,it is beautiful ,and so many of us have had our hearts not only broke but as a friend once told me'Maria your heart has been shattered, not just broken'.Yet thru it All,u get by with the smile of friends family and complete strangers who simply sense your pain and remind you of much brighter days to come! And truly when we see how someone else has been thru so much ,and how they kept pressing is like a battery recharge!
I thank you so very much for openeing up ,and I am so sure there are thousands who feel as you do! Love to you and hugs ...Maria C.

"Pixie Dust "   May 25th, 2010 2:21 pm ET

cris,would you please enlighten all us fellow bloggers.You stated that you where a clone to Michael,yes.Why would your family care if you revealed this to us or not ? it is not like you are Michael.I know there are all kinds of Michael Jackson impersonators out there,but why the secrecy you would think one would be proud to stand up and take claim for it. Why hide from it? You seem like a real nice guy and I will still visualize you as tall dark and handsome.(Smile)

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 25th, 2010 2:29 pm ET

@elisabeth my friend so true

we will wait for him no matter how long
our belief in him keeps growing strong
the truth is coming out we know
and maybe then the king will show
so keep the faith and keep it true
and i am sending love to you
cause in the end we will be there
its all for love and we care

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

doubtingthomas2010   May 25th, 2010 2:33 pm ET

I think Randy is coming from a good place. Remember, they use to open their home to fans. If the gravesite isn't accessible to the public his final house is supposed to be. If this is going through, I think they are planning the logistics so that everyone who visits will be respectful.

@Letta and Maura- I agree with you 100%.

"Pixie Dust "   May 25th, 2010 2:55 pm ET

MJ VS Mj,has to be one of the cutest videos I have had the pleasure to watch.Michael Jordan the basketball legend was to teach Michael how to play basketball and Michael was to teach Michael Jordan how to dance..One on one basketball Michael actually didn't do to bad .Michael trying to teach Michael Jordan how to dance was way.funny.Michael Jordan is quite a big man, Michael said Jordans feet were as big as boats.It was a little easier for Michael Jordan to do the moon walk. than the other dance moves Michael tried to teach him.They both decided to stick with what they were good at.. Thanks to my son for living and breathing basketball that he came across this video and was more than happy to share it with me.I wish I could up load the video for all to enjoy but my son has the youtube account in his name and I don't want to mess with it.If anyone is interested go to youtube and type in the browser Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan.( Jam ).I do believe it was recorded back in 1992..To me this is what it is all about, all the wonderful memories of Michael Jackson. and this is just one of them.I love you Michael (Smile)

If we make our goal to live a life of compassion
and unconditional love, then the world will
indeed become a garden where all kinds
of flowers can bloom and grow.

oh i think i have won again
you are soaking wet its such a shame
now i tumble off to bed
i need to rest my sleepy head

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

"Pixie Dust "   May 25th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

I was kinda hopeing others had a few things to share about Michael.I don't really know alot but I would love to share what I do know.I do not know much about Michaels managers,agents lawyers and such.I only know his music and dance.It was kinda cool to find out that Michael had a favorite flower.There is a certain picture I have had in my mind of Michael that just doesn't seem to want to disappear.When I was a little girl in the mid 70's my sister whom was three years older than me always insisted we had to go to the store to get the latest issue of teen beat magazine.I was only 10 so not quite as into it as she was.I always flipped through the magazine just because i guess.There was usually a photo or two of Michael in there, but the one that always stuck with me was a pic of him in a track suit,off to the side was Leif Garrett whom was bent over doing up his shoe almost appeared that they were at some family day event,having races and such.I never read the article so that I am not to sure of.But that one particular picture will probably stay with me for ever.Just think 34 years later,I still remember it.I love you Michael.(Smile)

Marguerite   May 25th, 2010 10:11 pm ET

Marguerite   May 25th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

True You are not so fast,
I am haivng a blast
I am aiming with this hose,
Oh my, it hit you right up the nose.
I amj taking aim with this balloon,
I am now running for the saloon.
That pie is coming right back to you,
Oh no here comes my shoe.
Don't you love the song locomotion,
Is it me or does your aim come in such slow motion.

dianeinmpls   May 25th, 2010 10:29 pm ET


Oh no! You better duck....look at all the stuff she threw at you! A hose and a pie and a shoe. LOL

You are up the tree.

So please don't go boohoo.
You better look for a tunnel,

Cause I could be your twin.

i am ahead of you by another day
and as it seems i have the power
i am sending you a meteor shower
here it comes right on time
now can you see this smile of mine
it is shining like a star at night
now admit it i win this fight

and as a tasty treat it will be
k f c to celebrate my victory
so i will send all a good night kiss
i am off to bed to dream of this

'Pixie Dust ',That was nice ,sweet memory you shared is fun to read how others feel about Michael,I am sure his heart ,his platinum heart ,is warmed like a fire on a cold nite ,when he reads the ways he has touched everyones life.
It is my deepest desire to sit in a tree,and just talk ,as old friends would , with Michael. Beverly Chicago has some outstanding lollipops to share ,with him too! Now thats what it's all about ! smile ....Love Maria C.

True are you on your chair,
Or are you pulling your hair.
You know it is raining cats and dogs,
Eek there falls a hog.
I can hear your scream,
For we are quite a team.
There can only be one blog clown,
I am the best in blog town.
You better brew some tea,
For you will not beat me.

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 26th, 2010 12:02 am ET

@marg my friend so true

sleep is something i must see
the dawn chrous is singing to me
to be continued you know its true
victory does not belong to you
goodnight god bless
i need some rest

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

Marguerite   May 26th, 2010 12:10 am ET

True it is beast,
For you to get your rest,
This was quite a test,
But I am the best.

....just one month...

This is it!   May 26th, 2010 5:23 am ET

A new light shines,
a new day gives,
A breeze blows by,
a gloomy heart forgives,
A empty child walks,
with hunger to feel,
A breeze blows by,
food appears to heal,
A heart cries alone,
with tears to bleed,
A breeze blows by,
with an angel ...godspeed,
A prayer is said,
for all with love,
A breeze blows by,
with grace from above

Bless You All~

Good to hear from you and thank you for sharing Ecclesiastes 3:11......

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end."

Yes, it could be a favourite of Michael. We can dedicate it to him I think. Ecclesiastes is a favourite of mine and is quite a profound book.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 26th, 2010 10:26 am ET

@ All – This is amazing.
Dance of life (written by Michael Jackson)

I cannot escape the moon. Its soft beams push aside the curtains at night. I don't even have to see it — a cool blue energy falls across my bed and I am up. I race down the dark hall and swing open the door, not to leave home but to go back into it. "Moon, I'm here!" I shout.
"Good," she replies. "Now give us a little dance."But my body has started moving long before she says anything. When did it start? I can't remember — my body has always been moving. Since childhood I have reacted to the moon this way, as her favorite lunatic, and not just hers. The stars draw me near, close enough so that I see through their twinkling act. They're dancing, too, doing a soft molecular jiggle that makes my carbon atoms jump in time.With my arms flung wide, I head for the sea, which brings out another dance in me. Moon dancing is slow inside, and soft as blue shadows on the lawn. When the surf booms, I hear the heart of the earth, and the tempo picks up. I feel the dolphins leaping in the white foam, trying to fly, and almost flying when the waves curl high to the heavens. Their tails leave arcs of light as plankton glow in the waves. A school of minnows rises up, flashing silver in the moonlight like a new constellation.
"Ah!" the sea says, "Now we're gathering a crowd."
I run along the beach, catching waves with one foot and dodging them with the other. I hear faint popping sounds — a hundred panicky sand crabs are ducking into their holes, just in case. But I'm racing now, sometimes on my toes, sometimes running flat-out.I throw my head back and a swirling nebula says, "Fast now, twirl!"Grinning, ducking my head for balance, I start to spin as wildly as I can. This is my favorite dance, because it contains a secret. The faster I twirl, the more I am still inside. My dance is all motion without, all silence within. As much as I love to make music, it's the unheard music that never dies. And silence is my real dance, though it never moves. It stands aside, my choreographer of grace, and blesses each finger and toe.
I have forgotten the moon now and the sea and the dolphins, but I am in their joy more than ever. As far away as a star, as near as a grain of sand, the presence rises, shimmering with light. I could be in it forever, it is so loving and warm. But touch it once, and light shoots forth from the stillness. It quivers and thrills me, and I know my fate is to show others that this silence, this light, this blessing is my dance. I take this gift only to give it again.Quick, give!" says the light.
As never before, I try to obey, inventing new steps, new gestures of joy. All at once I sense where I am, running back up the hill. The light in my bedroom is on. Seeing it brings me back down. I begin to feel my pounding heart, the drowsiness in my arms, the warm blood in my legs. My cells want to dance slower. "Can we walk a little?" they ask. "It's been kind of wild."
"Sure." I laugh, slowing to an easy amble.
I turn the doorknob, panting lightly, glad to be tired. Crawling back into bed, I remember something that I always wonder at. They say that some of the stars that we see overhead aren't really there. Their light takes millions of years to reach us, and all we are doing is looking into the past, into a bygone moment when those stars could still shine.
"So what does a star do after it quits shining?" I ask myself. "Maybe it dies."
"Oh, no," a voice in my head says. "A star can never die. It just turns into a smile and melts back into the cosmic music, the dance of life." I like that thought, the last one I have before my eyes close. With a smile, I melt back into the music myself.

@marg my friend so true

marg i am waiting for my victory cake
the one you know you must bake
we took this show all thru the night
and this little clown won that fight
you threw the balloons and the shoes at me
a tornado and a honey bee
you even got a garden hose
but you could not wash away my red clown nose
and in the end both covered in pie
it was such fun i will not lie
but when my carpet came in to play
that black hole for me won the day
i must admit it was a test
but us heavens clowns we are the best
so when you make my victory cake
a chocolate one you must bake
and i will share that cake with you
thats what we do us friends so true

i believe i will be there its all for lovelove is free

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 26th, 2010 2:42 pm ET

@mariam my friend so true

calm down now do not fret
this journey is not over yet
stop calling out for the king
he does not owe us anything
stop asking people whom they may be
cause you are you and i am just me
there is nothing here to reveal
but there is a lot of love i can feel
so stop the questions i think it is best
and just leave the king to his rest
its called respect and privacy
we all deserve this do you not see

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

You seem to be so sure do you know him or his family? Are you 90 percent sure. If you are I will be relieved. I too really feel he's alive. I have a gut feeling which usually is right.

You are pulling our legs again. From what I've heard the Rome tribute is off. Nonetheless, I agree with Elisabeth, Michael is alive. I'm waiting for him to snap his fingers and bam back to us. Say hello to your brother (s) for me.

Love to you all, 🙂

Loved Janet’s performance tonight. Every one of the performers did a brilliant job!

Directly, in plain sight, he hides before our eyes, sings and dances. Janet’s “mystery” person, tends to follow her to various performances, can the world not see him? 🙂

torpedo   May 27th, 2010 3:35 am ET

Have all of you not learned anything yet? Cris is a pathological liar.

care bear   May 27th, 2010 8:23 am ET

Cris is not a liar, he's a joker. 🙂

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 27th, 2010 9:57 am ET

Enjoyed the Idol finale, but sad to see Simon go. Good to see the two remaining Bee Gee brothers performing again.

Janet looked and performed fantastic. I have yet to see Janet's "mystery" person. Interesting. Will try some researching.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 27th, 2010 11:01 am ET

Saw the pictures on the TMZ site of all those beautiful sunflowers at the mausoleum. What a picture it was too. Fantastic.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 27th, 2010 11:02 am ET

I think Janet's "mystery" person is her new man.

"Pixie Dust "   May 27th, 2010 11:35 am ET

cris, torpedo seems to have a slight problem but it is all good.
(Smiles) to you !

TRUE-TO -YOU   May 27th, 2010 1:30 pm ET

a dj stepped into our place
full of lies such a disgrace
tried to come and rock the boat
filled heaven with tears but we kept afloat
what had caused all this to come about
a rotten tree had turned him out
took the cash took the pride
so many threats they cannot hide
on this mission they once again fail
we know the truth and that will prevail
so i say to all this hate
it will never get pass heavens gate
and just a little bit of advice from me
stop these games or i will uproot your tree
and this is not an idle threat
believe me you have not seen anything yet

i believe i will be there its all for love love is free

*Seven*   May 27th, 2010 2:20 pm ET


My friend, your Halo is on it´s way down
I don´t want to see it out on town
Where lies and gossip are flowing free
that is not a part of we
Head up high, touch the sky
Heaven is near, never feel any fear.
Truth is good, truth is Love
show it to people and him above.

care bear   May 27th, 2010 3:21 pm ET

Janet's mystery person is not Tyler Perry.

The mystery person is her brother. 🙂

Maria Copelli   May 27th, 2010 7:40 pm ET

Care Bear ,wow! Thank you for posting that video,of Janet on Idol! She looks stunning ,and if u close your eyes ,she does sound so much like Michael,absolutely charismatic like him too,and you cant keep your eyes off of her .She is a knockout,I love her hair ,I am tempted to chop mine too!
And I agree with you about our cris,he is a'Joker' not a liar! Can you explain to me the 'Mystery person' you speak of? LOL....thank you again ,and that made my day ! Love Maria C.

Marguerite   May 27th, 2010 10:10 pm ET

Even if this is a zoo
Michael we love you.

Marguerite   May 27th, 2010 10:31 pm ET

Will we find this is all a dream,
Or will we want to scream.

Marguerite   May 27th, 2010 10:50 pm ET

Do not shed a tear,
Soon it will be one year.

Marguerite   May 27th, 2010 11:31 pm ET

We will see him soon,
Maybe in the month of June.

Marguerite   May 27th, 2010 11:38 pm ET

A lot depends,
On the way this ends.

Don't you see,
This is not about you and me.

Well, I think you know who the mystery person is Michael of course!


Nice poem, thanks for sharing!

Love to all,

butterfly   May 28th, 2010 3:29 am ET


When I was a little girl my granddaddy used to say to his family, bring me fresh flowers while I'm alive so I can enjoy them no use bringing them to me when I'm dead and buried!

So dear Michael, please enjoy all those fresh sunflowers now. What a beautiful memory to have. You certainly deserve them.

"Pixie Dust "   May 28th, 2010 9:25 am ET

Yes it is all said in "Poetry" (Smile)

"Pixie Dust "   May 28th, 2010 10:20 am ET

Keep Smiling !

"Pixie Dust "   May 28th, 2010 7:23 pm ET

Yes, all the poems have been nice.But it looks like This Is it,we've come to and end.(smile)

Butterfly ,Hi How are you are? wow I miss the way the blogs used to run ,like a train! I wonder why it is so slow? Anyway I do see the flowers seem to be really blooming this spring! smile! Love Maria C.

butterfly   May 29th, 2010 1:20 am ET

Hi there Maria C :). I always enjoying reading your uplifting comments. Yes with the blogs running so slow it makes having a good interaction happen. Maybe its intentional to make us slow down and be mindful and conscious of what is really going on in our world?

Maria Copelli   May 29th, 2010 7:22 am ET

Butterfly ,Some might say; 'Piece,by Piece'.....I enjoy the happy spirit you show here too! And Uplifting as well! smile ,Hva anice day ,and looking forward to your comments! Love Maria C.

Letta,How are you ? I left you a rather lengthy comment a few days ago! I hope you had a chance to read it ! What classes r u taking? Do u have plans for the weekend ? If so stay safe ,lots of pure juice! Love and Hugs I send Maria C.

*Seven*   May 29th, 2010 3:32 pm ET

@ Marguerite

This is not about you or me
Mother Earth want to be free
Mother Earth want to breathe
It´s up to us, to save what we can
humans, wild life and nature of God
Seven year to go, it´s time to break loose
and make that change, before our Mother
takes her revenge.
It´s time to change, time to create, it´s time to think,
or our world could be gone, vanished in a blink

Nancy H   June 8th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

The final resting place for Michael Jackson should not be open to the public.....for the simple fact that it should be just for mother sister and children...not every joe off the would be so chaotic....let him rest in peace...he made a song....LEAVE ME respect his wishes....what is the brothers and father gonna do charge admission?they have done everything to make money of his death it is sickning.

Sandy Wright   October 23rd, 2010 3:41 am ET

Michael Jackson dies, wow, what a blow to the heart. Even to this day, it still hurts as thought it was yesterday. As much as I would love to pay my respects to his tomb, I don't personally think this is a good idea, because this leaves the door open to people who simply hate him. These people will try and destroy his resting place, no matter how long it takes, and Michael doesn't deserve that. What I would like to do, just to get the fill of him, would be to stand on the stage where he stood, at the Staple Center, just before his death. That would give me closure. There my soul will rest, and I can move on like I know he would want me to. MJ 4 ever.

Texas Lady   October 27th, 2010 8:48 pm ET

I cannot believe that the brother wants to open the gravesite for non family members, I am assuming there will be a charge to visit. I am sure the family which want each and every person to pay a fee to visit. I feel it is a shame the family still insists on getting as much from his death that they can, how sad they still want money from his death and they have lost one of the greatest superstars that existed.

ndongo   November 1st, 2010 4:21 am ET

elvis is not michael jackson either by any imagination so stop comparing. who is the best salling artist of all times. as far I know it is not elvis it is michael jackson and not even close. there never been an artist as successfull from 5 years and on and there will never be in the future unless send by god. It will be best if you can stop comparing.
