Michael Jackson Burial Pushed Back to September 3

by at . Comments

Michael Jackson will be formally laid to rest on September 3, instead of August 29 (which would have been on the pop icon's 51st birthday) as originally planned.

According to a statement by the Jacksons, the burial will be at Holly Terrace in The Great Mausoleum at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif.

Only family and close friends will be permitted to enter Forest Lawn. The facility is not public, and is guarded by security to prevent unlawful entry by the public.

Joe Jackson, Michael's father, said the burial would delayed, but the day they wanted it changed to - August 31 - was problematic because of schools re-opening.

The family settled on September 3 instead. No reason for the date being moved from Michael's birthday was given. The superstar's public memorial was July 7.

The investigation into his June 25 death is ongoing. Reports say Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael's personal physician, is likely to face manslaughter charges soon.

MJ was, is and will be the King Of Pop 4ever. He broght joy, peace, hope and entertainment more than anyone alive to millions of people worldwide. He´s like Berry Gordy said at The Staples Center Celebration Of MJ´s Life, the greatest artist who had ever stepped on an escenary. I´m greatful of having lived during his time and known his uncomparable genius thru his songs, videos and concerts. God bless you Michael. You were a gift from Him to us and unfortunately some didn´t notice it on time. But we your fans really did. Rest In Peace.....

I am still grieving over Michael's death. He was such a brilliant
performer, sensitive, kind, loving, an perfectionist. I still can't believe he's gone. He's been through so much and has silently suffered. His music was his escape, that's why he was
such an icon. I'll never forget Michael. He had such a gentle soul, very spiritual. I hope he is at peace now.I watched his video's this morning and just wheeped. There will never be a Michael Jackson, he was one of a kind. I think that Dr Conrad Nurray is a scavenger and was only thinking about the money. He had no money, and when Michael Jackson hired him, that was his perfect opportunity. If he claimed that he was Michael's friend, why would he give him that deadly drug? Why did he leave the room,knowing how dangerous the drug was. I hope they put him under the jail. He should get LIFE! Michael will always be in my heart.God Bless Him..Peace Michael
