On the third anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death (June 25, 2012), 10,477 long-stem Passion Growers Freedom roses decorated the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, where Jackson is interred. Robyn Starkand -– who helped organize the massive rose delivery fueled “One Rose for Michael Jackson” campaign –- said the roses allowed many fans who couldn’t make the trek feel like they were part of the memorial. Asked why she chose roses, Robyn Starkland said it was an easy pick. “It’s the creme de la creme of flowers, and that’s what he was.”
