Michael Jackson Funeral | Burial | An Invitation -Your Funeral Guy

3 Sep

Forest Lawn Memorial Park

Forest Lawn Memorial Park

The Michael Jackson Burial appears to be under the control of his Mother Katherine and there may be no live streaming video. Michael Jackson is to be buried in a high security spot at Forest Lawn. Holly Terrace is a secure place. Sections are locked. the place is plagued with Security Cameras and listening devices. This will be the place of the Michael Jackson Burial.

It has been reported that one of Michael Jackson’s White Gloves has been placed in his casket. It also has been reported that Michael Jacksons Children have placed notes in his golden casket.

From Time.Com

The private invitation is understated considering the life it is commemorating: a beige cover, with two corded strands, one black, one brown, each ending in sashes, framing the words “Michael Jackson: August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009.” It opens to a portrait of the artist in vivid color, holding flowers. Other portraits — a young Michael and an older Michael, in what is presumably a carnival ground on his Neverland estate — decorate other pages in the thin brochure, along with lyrics and words by the deceased. It asks the recipient to be at The Great Mausoleum of Forest Lawn Memorial-Park by 7 p.m. on Sept. 3 for a private service over his “final resting place.”

Michael Jackson Burial to be 8.29.09?

Joe Jackson “Michael Jackson’s father” has stated that his burial is to be Aug 29th 2009. This is what Michael’s dad  recently told the New York Daily News. Earlier reports of secret “MJ Burial’s” appear to be false. However we will not know for sure until an amended Death Certificate is filed in LA. The last recorded death certificate has “pending” for the burial location.

Aug 29 th is Michael Jackson’s 51st Birthday. Joe Jackson stated that the Burial will take place at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills.

From the “New York Daily News“.

Michael Jackson will be buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles at 10 a.m. on Aug. 29 on what would have been the King of Pop’s 51st birthday, Joe Jackson told Steve Friess, the Daily News’ man in Las Vegas.

For now treat this as an unconfirmed report.

Michael Jackson Funeral|Biggest Event| Facebook History-YourFuneralGuy

8 Jul

facebookThe Michael Jackson Memorial Funeral service on July 7th 2009 was the biggest event ever on Facebook. It was a bigger  FACE BOOK event than the Barack  Obama Inauguration.

Television reports have the  event as the second largest FUNERAL EVENT on TV coming in  behind the Princess Di Funeral.

There is no way to measure totally the  viewing audience because live streams were everywhere on the web. The event was shown in movie theaters across the country as well.

Snippet from From Mashable.com

“Facebook just sent us the staggering stats coming out of their live Michael Jackson memorial stream, created in partnership with CNN. The numbers far exceed those from Obama’s inauguration, making this the biggest live Facebook event in history.

As of yesterday 800,000 people gave away the Michael Jackson(MJ) virtual glove gift. The Michael Jackson Funeral was the largest Facebook interactive event  ever.

Commentators and many folks thought the MJ  Funeral coverage was over the top and not appropriate. it was a bit much.
