Jackson Bros to Carry the Casket One More Time

8/18/2009 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MIchael JacksonRandy Jackson just confirmed to TMZ that he and his brothers will serve as pallbearers at Michael Jackson's burial service.

Here's the message we just received straight from Randy -- " I will be there ... and yes the brothers will carry him from the hearse to the front of the mausoleum."

Randy, his brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon were the pallbearers at the Staples Center Memorial last month.

Now, the family is preparing for the private burial which is set to take place August 29 at Glendale Forest Lawn -- on what would have been Michael's 51st birthday.

It would be better to bury him in a holy place like Mekka - he was to clear for dirty and corrupted Hollywood.

Not sure why the family is announcing this; if they want privacy-this is certainly NOT the way to achieve it

Burying him on his birthday just reinforces how truly out of it this family is. And I agree. If you want privacy, keep it private, don't do it on his birthday, when fanatics are bound to be milling around there anyway, since that's where he is.

That they all think this is a wonderful idea is pretty telling.

Even though he was in a freezer for the last month and a half, I'm sure that casket will have quite a hum to it.

His brothers will probably be gagging while carrying him.

I thought they were Jehovah Witness' and they don't believe in Birthdays. Finally, he will be buried and may he rest in peace. This whole thing has been a circus. Enough already...Perhaps if Jermaine would have kept his nose out of the burial plans this could have been long ago. RIP Michael.

OOWEEE    

HOW DARE THE JACKSON BROTHERS ATTEMPTS TO BE CARING: It is horrific that the Jackson Brothers did not use their influences to put Michael Jackson in a Medical Rehab Facility, so His Life could have been saved from Addictions and Death. The Jackson Family are the worst Family in the World. And I hope the Jacksons read this Email. You are Enablers for ignoring your Brothers Addictions for the purpose of staying on his Payroll. RIP MICHAEL JACKSON.

This is a very emotional and sad time for those who are apart of the Jackson family. This is not a celebration. This is a moment of bringing Michael to his final earthly resting place.

It is a beautiful setting. One where his children, mother and family can go to reflect, pray and morn his earthly passing.

The general public will be able to go to the grounds year round and go to the museum and tour the works of Michael Angelo at the Mausoleum. Michael was a collector and studier of art. May his fans enjoy the incredible setting and history presented here while coming to the grounds where Michael was placed.

Fans can even Marry at the grounds. Make no mistake this will be a place were fans of Micheal are welcome to come and be touched.

Please respect the family at this time. They lost a family member as so many of you have. It is never easy. The family walks a thin line in respecting the fans by including them in their pain and in their plans for Michael legacy and burial.

OOWEEE    

I think of Michael Jackson as a Prodigy, a Person that has a Gift of Song. It is devastating for me to know that Mr. Jackson was a Forsaken Cash Cow, with not one persons close to Him caring enough to put him in Rehab. Michael Jacksons Mother, Father, Sister and Brothers have repeatedly portrayed themselves as complete AS.....ssssHO...L..eS.
