For those who may still think this is Michael Jackson's grave, I can definitely assure you that this is not his grave. I came to visit here on July 7 and had noted a handful of mourners leaving the cemetery as a friend and I got out of the car, plus there were some workers with shovels so I knew someone was being buried. I was there around 1pm and MJ's memorial service had ended not long before... if he was buried there, I'm very sure I would've been denied entry to Westwood.

    I enjoy spending time exploring cemeteries, reading and photographing headstones of celebrities and civilians alike, and learning about the lives and deaths of these so-called "permanent residents" of the graveyards and mausoleums. This blog chronicles those experiences.

    One of the cemeteries I'm most interested in these days is Grand View Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif. I wrote about its legal problems for the LA Daily News' community hub, ValleyNews.com from August 2006 to December 2008, when Valley News ceased operations. In response to reader requests to have one central source of information, I created and continue to maintain Grand View Memorial Park (dot) Info.
