The bed Michael Jackson died in will be sold at auction next month, the Associated Press reported.

The three-story Los Angeles home where Jackson died will be sold, and its contents auctioned off in mid-December. This includes expensive furniture, works of art and a number of horribly depressing pieces, like a kitchen chalkboard with the message, “I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it’s for free.” The chalkboard will be sold as is for an estimated $400, according to the AP.

Then there’s an antique armoire where Jackson had composed this message, presumably about his planned comeback tour, on a mirror: “TRAIN, perfection, March April. FULL OUT May.”

The sale, held by Julien’s Auctions, was announced the same day Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death. Murray is currently being held in a Los Angeles prison until his sentencing Nov. 29.
