Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Fans Gift 10,000 Roses
Fans of Michael Jackson have spent $30,000 to pay for 10,000 roses to commemorate the third year since his passing from acute Propofol intoxication.
Michael Jackson fans have sent 10,000 roses to Forest Lawn Memorial Park to commemorate the third anniversary of his death.
Using social media sites to raise money, more than $30,000 was collected to pay for the flowers, which have been sent to the 'Earth Song' singer's final resting place in Glendale, California.
Once the flowers have been used today (25.06.12), the roses will be sent to local homes for the elderly and other similar establishments, according to TMZ.com.
Michael died of acute Propofol intoxication on 5 June, 2009.
His 14-year-old daughter Paris - who today paid tribute to her father on twitter - recently admitted she still struggles with his death.
She said: ''It never gets easier.''
Michael's then physician Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in prison after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter for administering the drug to him.
The doctor's lawyer recently revealed he wanted to be moved as the conditions of the Los Angeles County Jail where he is serving time were taking a serious physical toll on him.
He said he was only getting fresh air once a month and clean underwear once a week.
