Many stories are published about Elvis, Priscilla, daughter Lisa Marie, and all the rest of the Presleys –  at Graceland, in Hollywood, and elsewhere.  Lisa Marie’s own daughter became a high fashion model at age 14. The whole family is famous and will probably always be in American music and fashion history.

What Elvis began in his short career touched America. It touched the whole world with an understanding and hope for the dream of the working man and working woman. It is a dream of success in a free land. – Can we still do that in the turbulent Early 21st Century?

Memphis, Tennessee: The Greatest Place to Stand Near Elvis

 
This link above leads to a story about one blue-collar working friend of mine and all his journeys to Graceland, until he also died too young – just like Elvis. My friend was one of the best Elvis Tribute Artists I ever heard and I’m glad I told him so during the last substantial conversation I ever had with him.  That makes things a little easier now without him, but not overly much.
 
Say what you need to say before your friends die on you.
You’ll be glad you said those words. 
 
Dedicated to Robert A. Franklin (Jan. 30, 1953 – August 18, 2011)
