Presley Sends Floral Thank You To Sunflower Supplier

LISA MARIE PRESLEY has personally thanked a florist who answered a public plea to surround MICHAEL JACKSON's burial plot with sunflowers - by sending the generous fan a blooming bouquet of his own.
The singer, who was married to the King of Pop for two years from 1994, was shocked by the lack of floral tributes around Jackson's gravesite when she recently went to visit the Thriller hitmaker's mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Parks & Mortuaries in Glendale, California.
Presley reached out to fans on her MySpace.com page last Thursday (13May10), urging them to "surround" Jackson's grave with sunflowers.
She wrote, "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 favourite flower was the Sunflower. 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 (would be covered). We can all cause a "Sun shower" if you will... He deserves to be flooded and surrounded, LET'S SURROUND HIM!"
Presley's ploy worked and the man behind online florist SunflowerGuy.com sent more than 1,500 of the plants to brighten up Forest Lawn on Friday (14May10).
Presley was overjoyed to learn about the huge delivery - and has sent her own bouquet of roses and lilies to the website's owner to thank him for the gift, reports TMZ.com.
The accompanying note reads, "Thank you so much for donating the beautiful flowers. Lots of love, LMP."

I to would like to say thank you to the florist for sending so many beautiful sun flowers to Michael. Lisa Marie I was thank you for sending out the plea on behalf of Michael. Many people don't seem to realize that you still care deeply for Michael even if he is your ex. Ex's can still have love for one another even though their marriage has ended. Please keep the kind words coming on his behalf to his fans and yours. May you keep the sunshine coming.Joaquina

This is the greatest news I have heard. The request for artificial sunflowers by Michael's first wife and now the contribution of 1500 Living SunFlower Plants is the greatest contribution and thankfully Lisa Marie's requests have been answered. This is exactly what Michael would have wanted. faithfully. M.H.

I like LMP, but I think she should have arranged to have 2 dozen sun flowers sent to him weekly, instead of telling the fans to make sure that we keep flowers at his grave. I mean come on she's rich...there's a recession going on; people are having a hard time keeping food on the table. Furturmore, I don't think Michael is concerned about flowers, he just wanted to be loved. That's all he ever wanted. I remember reading somewhere Michael said when he died he wanted to be buried around children. I don't know, maybe LMP should find some children to go play around his grave. Sorry we are MJ fans, not LMP fans. We're going to do what we know or think Michael liked, not what LMP liked. LMP, I think that you should be more concerned about what Michael would want & provide it, just like the children that you promised him & reneged.
