Danny Deraney, publicist for Kerri Kasem, says Kasem's children from his first marriage hope he will be buried at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, California, as he wished.

Kasem died on June 15 at a hospital in Washington state. Deraney says the celebrity's second wife, Jean Kasem, has the rights to his body but has not yet arranged for him to be buried.

Scott Thompson, spokesman St. Anthony Hospital, says Kasem's wife collected his remains from the hospital after he died, but Thompson did not know what arrangements she made.
