Michael JacksonThere are various reports about where Michael Jackson will be buried. We are told by people who know ... no decision has been made yet.

The talk within the family -- there are people who stand to make a lot of money off of a public spectacle at Neverland, making it appear that the funeral will take place at the ranch.

As of the time this story was published, the family has made no decision.

+MICHAEL JACKSON, TO QUOTE A LYRIC, FROM ONE OF YOUR SONGS..I WANT YOU TO KNOW, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. NOT ANYMORE. I BELIEVE YOU ARE THE ANGEL IN HEAVEN YOU SOUGHT SO HARD TO BE HERE ON EARTH. YOU WERE SO MISUNDERSTOOD, VILIFIED. SO BEAT UPON. THERE WAS SO MUCH MOCKERY AND HATRED OF YOU, FOR ONLY ONE REASON. YOU’RE GOODNESS; YOUR LUMINOSITY INTO THE BEAUTIFUL HEART YOU BELIEVED COULD BE IN EVERY MAN. YOU HAD SUCH GENEROSITY, AND TRIED SO HARD TO TEACH OTHERS, TO LOOK INTO THE SOUL. AND TO NOT JUDGE BASED ON COLOR, CREED OR CLASS.
BUT DARKNESS, DOESN’T LIKE BEAUTY TO SHINE. IT DETRACTS SO MUCH FROM WHAT IT IS TRYING TO DO. CREATE DARK HUMANLESS SOULS OF US ALL. TO REPLACE THE RADIANCE THAT WAS BORN WITHIN ALL OF US,, BY GOD. YOU SPOKE OF NOTHING, BUT LOVE AND PEACE. YOUR LIGHT THROUGH YOUR WORDS, AND MUSIC SHONE SO BRIGHT. YOU”VE BROUGHT SO MUCH TOO SO MANY, BUT ONLY SOUGHT PURE LOVE FOR YOURSELF. YOUR SENSITIVITY BROUGHT RIDICULE. WHEN ALL YOU WISHED MOST OF ALL WAS TO BE EMBRACED AND UNDERSTOOD. YOU HAD SUCH A CREATIVE, GENTLE, KIND SPIRIT.
I THINK THOUGH, WHAT STOOD OUT TO ME MOST OF ALL WAS YOUR TENDER NATURE. ENVY IN OTHER PEOPLE MISTOOK THAT FOR WEAKNESS, WHEN IN REALITY IT IS STRENGTH. THE FORCE OF WHO YOU ARE WAS SO STRONG. MANY PEOPLE WISHED TO HAVE THAT, BUT COULD NEVER ACHIEVE THAT. SO THEY WERE JEALOUS, AND SPITEFUL. WE ARE ALL AFFORDED DIFFERENT OPPORTUNITIES IN LIFE. INSTEAD OF BEING ENVIOUS, THEY SHOULD HAVE REJOICED WITH YOU, IN YOUR SUCCESS AND IN YOUR LIFE.

Michael once said in an interview to listen to his song, "Childhood." It made me cry when I read the lyrics.

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood
I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I've had

Have you seen my Childhood...

I've been watching FOX KTTV all morning, camera #2 showing all kinds of activity at NLR. Cannot imagine them having it there with the traffic and media BUT ..... that's why I watch TMZ for the latest!

I feel he should be entombed some place where the public can visit him. There are plenty of places that could accommodate the crowds. He so loved his fans.

I'd like to get buried in my yard too, but there's laws against that. Just because he's Michael Jackson doesn't mean he's above the law.

I think you all answered the family's dilemma in your headline. Why not send MJ's remains up in the most spectacular fireworks display ever televised by "pay per view"...Afterall it is the 4th of July weekend coming up.

Michael deserves to go out with a bang as he is the King of Pop.
