Michael Jackson ‘s remains were laid to rest at Forest Lawn cemetry in Los Angeles on the 3th of september 2009.
His family held a private ceremony with some of Michael’s friends like Elizabeth Taylor , Macauley Culkin and Quincy Jones. His children put a crown on the casket of their beloved father. Later they were allowed to put some personal notes in the casket . Michael ‘s famous sequined glove was put aside with him .
Michael’s brothers were pallbearers just like the day of the MJ’s memorial in the Staples Centre. Michael’s dancers , who were supposed to perform with him on the THIS IS IT tour , were present and wore the MJ like outfits , they helped the family out of their cars upon arrival at Forest Lawn.
The service took place in open air near the great mausoleum. His body will be put in the mausoleum , a place with high level of security .
Fans and press were kept away from the ceremony by the security . Was this the ceremony Michael Jackson would have wanted? We never know for sure , because Michael didn’t put this on paper. Why should he , Mj never thought he would pass away so soon . Some fans are sad that they couldn’t be part of the ceremony or that they could not watch the full ceremony , as the jackson family decided not to do this. others are content and say that Michael’s mother was the one to decide for Michael , because this was her baby ,she wanted to take care for her baby for the last time, and her baby got hurt by the press …therefore wanted a quiet ceremony . This maybe true as it is , but the fans of Michael Jackson really love him and should not be ignored .. as Michael would never let his fans down , he loves them more…
