James Brown Finally Laid to RestAfter almost 3 full months we all can finally say “Rest In Peace” – for now at least - to the Godfather of Soul. His family finally came to somewhat of an agreement on where to bury his body.

James Brown’s body was placed in a crypt at the Beech Island, South Carolina, home of daughter Deanna Brown Thomas over the weekend, more than two and a half months after the iconic singer died. In the days that followed his death on Christmas, he was eulogized in both a highly elaborate public memorial at the Apollo Theater in New York and a private funeral in Augusta, Georgia, but his six adult offspring declined to inter his remains right away because they could not agree on a final resting spot. Instead, his body was preserved first in a climate-controlled room at his own 60-acre Beech Island residence before being moved to an undisclosed location, where it was tended by the head of a local funeral home. About 50 of the singer’s family members and close friends gathered at noon on Saturday for a quiet ceremony at Thomas’ home, located about three miles from Brown’s estate.
