Thanks for your great work,

Thank you for sharing ladies.

It brings me closer to MJ all the way from Australia.

Thanx for the flowers dear girls...Your album here is so important for us the fans...Thanx for sharing and your presence was perhaps a ray of light for Michael... Take care and appreciate life like Michael loved to do...I cry 1 or 2 minutes a day, but I smile too...Brace yourself !!;))

Excuse, who are the girls of the picture? Fans of Michael? or DID they work for him????
THanks for the pictures....They make this tragedy more real and true...OMG....I feel we have lost the greatest...This shows me again the fact that Michael Jackson is gone is true.. and he will never come back...He will rest in peace forever in that beautiful holy terrace.....I have to accept it....THAT'S SO SAD..I still cry for him. Poor Michael Jackson....He should be here with us!!!!

I miss him so much

Thank you so much...To see that he is in a beautiful place makes my pain just a tiny bit more bareable...Knowing now that he was not tucked away in a dark and scary place(as I invisioned) makes it so much better...It is so great to know that the guards pass on your flowers and gifts...I miss Mike so very much...God Bless Your Children Mike...

Thank you for sharing
I ll visit him someday for sure as he came one day to my country it was in 1996. I ll do it I ll travel from Morocco to LA to say to him how i miss him.

Thanks for sharing, I commented in the album also, I look at this and can't help some tears to come to my eyes yet again. Though like some have said here, I'm glad he's resting in that beautiful place and not in some anonimous grave like it was rumored at some point. I will visit some day too, from Mexico, just to feel closer.
I can't imagine what it must feel like to be there, so close yet so far to someone we still love, admire and miss so much.

This is so heartbreaking...

  • 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.

    In addition to this blog, some of my older material is archived at Buried Treasures at LisaBurks.com

    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.
