Michael Jackson to be buried on his birthday
It has been almost two months since Michael Jackson died after falling victim to cardiac arrest, and his family is finally ready to lay him to rest.
On Tuesday morning reps for the Jackson clan announced that the King of Pop is to be buried on August 29 at 10:00 a.m. PDT, at Holly Terrace in the Great Mausoleum at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif.
The statement noted that the ceremony will remain private and that only close friends and family members can attend. However, there will be nearby accommodations for the news media.
“The Jackson family once again wishes to express its gratitude to Michael’s fans around the world for their support during these difficult times,” the press release said.
