James Brown Finally Laid to Rest

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - James Brown's body was placed in a crypt Saturday at the Beech Island home of one of the soul singer's daughters, a spokeswoman for the Rev. Al Sharpton said.

Sharpton presided over the private ceremony held for family and a few friends at the home of Deanna Brown Thomas, Rachel Noerdlinger said.

The service took place more than two months after the singer died in an Atlanta hospital. Brown died Dec. 25 at age 73, and his body had been held at an undisclosed location since then.

The crypt likely will not be Brown's final resting place. A public mausoleum is being built and its location will be announced once it is completed, Noerdlinger said.

Brown's children decided to use their own money to place his body in the crypt instead of waiting for disputes over his estate to be settled in court, Sharpton said in a statement.

''The children wanted to see their father entombed in a resting place without delay,'' Sharpton said.
