    James Brown's body was finally buried on Saturday at the Beech Island, South Carolina home of his daughter, Deanna Brown Thomas. The Reverend Al Sharpton officiated at the burial. It's unlikely that this particular crypt will serve as Brown's final resting place, as there is a public mausoleum being built in an undisclosed location.

    Buddy Dallas, a close friend of Brown and a trustee of his estate, expressed disappointment at the service. He told the AP that the trustees coordinated for a "very prominent memorial garden in Augusta," adding, "Mr. Brown's not deserving of anyone's backyard."
