The Jackson Family Prepares For Funeral

Preparing for today’s funeral services, the Jackson family gathered in Los Angeles to bid farewell to Michael Jackson.

At approximately 7 p.m. last night, the King of Pop’s body was taken to the Hall of Liberty building for a viewing, with a private funeral scheduled for today at the same place in the early morning.

Included in the small group was Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and his siblings, as well as his hair and makeup person, Karen Faye. A public memorial service is planned to take place today at the Los Angeles Staples Center with a simulcast of the memorial service occurring across the street at the Nokia Theater.
