Wonderful, wonderful post!

Thanks Lisa for showing a side of Debbie that none of us get from "mainstream" media. Well done, as always, and keep on keeping on :)

Thank you so much for shearing this with us .
Michael chose Debbie to be the mother of his children - we will never forget this ...
I guess it so hard for her also , she needed some support from us- the fans .
Thank u all for your dignity& open mind .

Love your words, Lisa!

Can't believe it, Debbie Rowe...
I am in awe of her.

Thank you, Lisa.

Dear Lisa:
Thank you very much for sharing this. I love your words and your photos. I am deeply touched as reading. You guys are extremely amazing.

I am a fan from Taiwan. We have so many MJ fans in Taiwan. And we gather together often to study his words, watch his performance and mourning together for the loss too.
Can I have your permission to use this photos and to translate this article to Chinese and post it to my blog so the MJ fans in Taiwan can understand.

My blog: http://www.wretch.cc/blog/hanafingers

It is a Chinese blogsite; and probably you will have some difficulties when accessing it.

My friend and myself travelled to Forest Lawn last Christmas Eve and Neverland on Christmas. It was an overwhelming experience in my life that I never forget forever.

Thanks again for this wonderful post.

Love MJ and love you all.

Thank you for posting this. I never understood people judging Debbie - it was always clear to me she loved Michael. I wish she had been able to stay closer to the children.

But couldn't she go inside? Did she have to stay at the entrance?

Beautiful Lisa as always. What a day you had. I always knew they gave her such a hard time, but she really did love him. Thanks for this Lisa.

Thank you Lisa! Thanks for the words, pictures and your sincerity!
Greetings from Germany

Rest in Love and Peace Michael Jackson

Wow. Simply excellent, Lisa. What a great piece!! You rock, as always!

  • 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.
