Can't believe they let the public hang on the casket and get so close! One person at the end looked like, to quote a phrase from "Six Feet Under," a "climber."

wow! now that was a funeral. I remember years ago watching one of her movies with you and we both we on the floor laughing so hard. I recall as a kid seeing her on live tv and her falling, is that a fact or what, and of course the famous snatch photo of her with hot gay cesar romero. Also did she die while performing on tv, or is this another myth. How old was she when she passed, young I recall.

I postd this to put MJ's funeral in historic context. a million people lined the streets of Rio for Carmen.

I saw her on "The Jimmy Durante Show" all those years ago. after a number she fell to her knees but then got back up. apparently that was her 1st heart attack. she had another at home a few hours later & died at age 46.

yes that was it. So I wasn't dreaming this.
