Lisa Marie's Flowers for MJ Plea -- Few Takers

5/13/2010 5:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Marie Presley's desperate plea for fans to bring more flowers to Michael Jackson's tomb must have fallen on deaf ears -- because as of today the entrance to the tomb was pretty bare.

Michael Jackson's ex-wife complained about too much "empty space" around the singer's tomb on her MySpace page yesterday -- and urged fans to fill the void with lots of sunflowers ... but obviously that didn't happen.

Fans have since fired back, claiming they've been faithfully doing their part flowers-wise since MJ died last year.

The way Joe DiMaggio sent flowers to Marilyn Monroe's grave, Lisa Marie can afford to send flowers to Michael EVERY day if she wanted. After all, her father's estate makes millions every year!

Just read a post on another site from someone who called Forest Lawn and learned from them that they are now forwarding anything sent or left by fans (either outside the mausoleum or by mail) directly to the Jackson family. Apparently it got to be too much transferring everything inside. The only things that will now be left by Michael's tomb are things that people on the visitation list carry in themselves. Sounds like only the family, Lisa, and a few other close friends will have the ability to leave anything by the sarcophagus from this point onward.



Perhaps the bareness Lisa saw when she arrived was the reflection of this new policy.

ALL WE WANT TO KNOW MEDIA IS WHO KILLED MJ, I COULD GIVE RATS ---, IF HE IS THIS OR THAT, OR HE DID THIS OR THAT, NO I WANT TO know who killed him, don't change the subject because i will know that justice has not come and it may never come. if i hear another dirt story on mj that does not pertain to his killer, i will know that evil is at work.

This "flower gesture" is taken so far out of context. It's not the actual flowers...it's knowing that Michael is still in people's hearts and thoughts. It's just a visual way of knowing a deceased one is being thought of.



Why do we bring flowers to the resting places of loved ones on All Saints Day or any day? It's a visual for the living, so "we the living can remind "ourselves" that our loved one's are being thought of...not the dead. The more flowers, cards, etc. lets people know this person is always being thought of. No one wants to be forgotten in death.



A flower or card...it's a way of self consoling...a small price to pay to heal the heart. Read between the lines people and never take things too literally, that's what gossip sites do.



RIP Michael, never forgotten...

Beautiful sentiment and so true. I'm sure this is what was behind Lisa's thought process. I thought her suggestion was sweet.



And to whomever wondered why she didn't give him a sunflower when he was alive - she did. She said that when they were married, she used to make sure his various rooms were filled up with them wherever he went.

Michael Jackson died from drugs that apparently should only be used in surgery. I mean, come on! I liked his music. There's no doubt he was talented. But tell me why Lisa Marie is complaining about the lack of flowers when thousands of our soldiers have died fighting for our country and are much more deserving, IMO. How about pay respect to those that actually valued life? Not to all these celebrities that just waste it away with their drugs and addictions =P

So it's easier to send and pass on all cards and gifts etc to the Jacksons , instead of taking them to Michaels resting place???



That doesn't sound easier to me, but if thats what there doing, so be it.
Maybe we should send all gifts to LMP, and she could personally place them inside for us. Wouldn't that be sweet.
