What a WONDERFUL tribute to MJ by his fans. What wonderful people MJ has for fans in S. Ca. Very cool, very VERY Cool. Wish I were there!

Still can't believe he is gone, but thank goodness for those who keep his spirit alive!

Happy Holidays everyone!
Blessings to the MJ fans.

Beautiful video. Thanks for sharing, Lisa. What a special moment.

Happy Holidays!

We understand your love and devotion, but Michael was a Jehovah's Witness and they don't celebrate Christmas...

So beautiful! Michael loves Christmas time very much!
No, he is not alone!

Thank you for the post, from Portugal.

We all think of you,not only at this Holiday Season,but the part you played in so many lives.Gods care and blessings to your family.You are not Alone.

Ann, Michael's favorite time f year was Christmas. He did celebrate it with his children...I am sure he was watching down with a big smile on his face!

Thank you so much Lisa for sharing this and giving me the opportunity to "bee there"... Thank you so much for that little peek inside of Michael's resting place, it is so beautiful there and for most of all peaceful. I think of him every day, i love him so dearly. And it hurts so much...I can`t stop crying, because he had to be taken form os to get hes peace.
I will newer get over him.
Hugs and kisses from Norway

  • 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.
