Oh very cool.

They are sooo touching. Some cemetaries are so beautiful and peaceful. I'm glad Michael will at last have some privacy in death.

Something that disturbes me about his apparent final resting place : Michael´s Mother is a Jehovas Witness, would she agree for her Son to be placed near Catholic Idols,Pictures,Crosses etc??
Has no one thought of that ?

Please keep comments about Michael Jackson confined to posts on that topic. ;)

Forest Lawn Glendale is not a Catholic cemetery. Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jehovah is the only true God, the creator of all things, and that Jesus was Jehovah's first creation. While Jesus' life is one of the major themes of Forest Lawn Glendale, it is driven by classic artwork interpretations, not Catholic doctrines.

Hope this helps! :)

sorry for using the wrong topic.
if you have a close look at the pictures in the glas.....
i don´t know, somehow it just doesn´t seem fitting.sorry

Lisa what can I see in the DC area? I often followup on famous names I happen to read about by searching for their graves on famousgraves.com. It must be something about graves that interest me. What should I see in DC? Are their any special organizations I can join. I think an organization that visits graves would satistfy me.

  • Exploring History From The Ground Up!

    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.
