    Hi,

    I fear its going to go on and on. The will reading, the custody issue now his ex wife has said she will fight for custody. I am all for children being with their mother but these kids have not seen their mother for years, I feel it would be terrible for them to live with a literal stranger, I do wonder why she has decided she wants them all the sudden, could it be the fact they come with a financial package????

    Izzie

    He can't be buried at the ranch under the law of that state.The news that he "was" to buried there is outdated.:D

    I hope when they do decide on a date, that the press give the family space to grieve.

    I just think the way things are going it will turn into a circus.:(

    tbh i couldn't care it was teh first link that came up with i stuck his name in google, read abit of it to make sure it was relevant.

    couldn't care less if he was jetted to the sun as long as the media shut the F up.

    the memorial service for the fans is on tuesday at the staples centre i believe. and as far as im aware is free but obv it will be a fight to get a ticket. i could be wrong about the free thing tho.

    and a private family funeral will take place somewhere over the weekend. there was a picture of his waiting grave in the paper today in a cemetry in los angeles where he will be buried next to his grandmother.

    at least i really hope this will be a private funeral.

    As much as i respect the Jackson Family's wishes for a private funeral part of me wishes they would make it public. But the memorial service is just as good i guess. I only wish i could go - i'd prob never get a ticket anyway....

    Does anyone know, will the memorial service be shown on tv?

    It is free to go to his memorial service and i think his funeral is on Sunday. I still can't believe he's gone.
