Lisa Marie Presley posted on her My Space page that she had recently visited Michael’s mausoleum in Forest Lawn, and was dismayed to see that there were just a few tributes to him there. She advised the fans that his favourite flowers were Sunflowers, or as he called them “Happy Flowers”, and suggested that fans each send a silk sunflower to Holly Terrace, Forest Lawn.
Lisa’s message is as follows:
Greetings MJ Fans…
While visiting him a few days ago at Forest Lawn, Riley and I couldn’t help but notice that, while there are a few bouquets, candles and gifts there is a very large empty space around him and in front of him that could use a whole lot more.
While, I am sure that the staff at The Holy Terrace do their very best to place what is sent and what is placed at the door at his tomb, I thought you might like to know that he would want and deserves more than what is there and I had an idea…Some may or may not know this but his favorite flower was the Sunflower.
They made him happy because they looked happy to him, Thus, he called them “The Happy Flower”.
When we were married, I would try and fill up rooms with them wherever he was. I wanted to bring something to place near him that he liked and that wouldn’t die so I brought a large vase of silk sunflowers and placed them near him. This barely made any kind of dent in the atmosphere so I thought of maybe letting those who care know what the situation is and how we can solve it.
I know how much he loved and appreciated being showered with Gifts and flowers by his fans, I thought if whoever wants to bought just one silk sunflower each and sent it , the whole area around him and in front of him (As well as the two large empty vases that sit on either side of him) could be filled up in no time , which would be much more appropriate than what the current status is right now.
We can all cause a “Sun shower” if you will…He deserves to be flooded and surrounded, LETS SURROUND HIM!
Lots of Love,
There are two Forest Lawns in LA which is confusing, Below is the correct address to send them to:
The Holy Terrace At Forest Lawn 1712 South Glendale Avenue Glendale Calif, 91205
Today, Jason Levin, who grows sunflowers in San Diego County, delivered 2,000 sunflowers to the mausoleum. He loaded up his truck and left Vista at dawn, and three hours later he unloaded them at the heavily guarded mausoleum.
Forest Lawn Officials told him they would take the flowers inside.
