After passing away more than two months ago, Michael Jackson finally reached his fnal resting place on Thursday, at a private mausoleum at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
Close friends of Jackson who didn’t attend the public memorial service on July 7 were in attendance invitation-only funeral service including Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Marie Presley, and Macaulay Culkin.
The Jackson family paid $150 thousand dollars in advance to the Glendale police department to provide security and released the following statement after the 90-minute service: “Michael Jackson reached his final resting place tonight at 9:43 pm PST…At the beginning of the ceremony, Michael’s children placed a crown on their father’s coffin to signify the final resting place of the King of Pop.”
“Michael, I always think about the time when you and I were in our bedroom in Indiana and it was snowing outside, we had our faces pressed against the window singing x-mas songs. It was the innocence and joy that made us sing as the snow was falling,” Jermaine writes.
“Your dreams were so incredible that it made the world a much happier place to live, and the world wouldn’t let you rest because they demanded your dreams to transport them to another place. You’ve done your work here Michael, you’ve entertained us for decades and there’s nothing else that you can prove or accomplish here on earth. You taught us how to laugh, how to love, and how to believe,” La Toya writes.
