Private and public funerals have been set for the late Michael Jackson, according to CNN.
Hs body will return to his Neverland Ranch for a public viewing on Friday, CNN reports. (Jackson’s brothers Jackie, Jermaine and Tito visited the grounds over the weekend and a delivery truck was spotted there Tuesday dropping off boxes.)
A private memorial service is slated for Sunday, according to CNN.
There is still no word on where Jackson will be buried, but his hometown of Gary, Ind., is hoping the family to send him there.
“I believe that his body will lie in state in Gary, Ind.,” Gary Mayor Rudy Clay told Chicago radio station WGN Tuesday. “Now, it may not happen, but I believe it will.”
At the very least, Clay said he hopes Jackson’s body will be taken to Gary for a July 10 memorial service at U.S. Steel Works ballpark.
