The death of Michael Jackson, at only 50-years-old, and so suddenly, has saddened and shocked many. He had millions of fans worldwide and when it’s time to say the final goodbye, those millions will weep and remember a music icon.
While there have been no public details yet on what kind of funeral will be arranged for the fallen pop star, it’s believed his will be the biggest since the death of another music legend, Elvis Presley. His funeral could even eclipse the day Princess Diana was buried.
It’s believed Millions will watch any televised funeral services, and tens of thousands will likely line the streets on the day Jackson is laid to rest.
Will Michael’s funeral be closed to only family and close friends, or will it be a big glamorous affair in proportion to the way Jackson lived? Even if the family decides to hold a private ceremony, it won’t stop fans from paying their respects any way they can.
As well, Jackson’s numerous celebrity friends will attend, including Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli, and his ex-wife, Lisa Marie Presley.
My heart goes out to his kids – what a sad and confusing time for them, with the uncertainty of who will ultimately raise them.
