38 years ago Elvis Aron Presley (sadly) died (i.e. August 16, 1977)

Some Days it seems like yesterday Elvis was making crowds scream in sold out concerts

Others it seems like…a lifetime ago.

Many, those who grew up with me and/or I gave life to, have wondered “why are – or how are – you an Elvis fan”? There is no big mystery to it. I liked his music. I applauded his charitable endeavors. I lived during his lifetime and saw him reach the greatest heights of fame and go through the depths of…pain (i.e. divorce, declining health, financial issues, lawsuits, etc.).

He was human. He had dreams. He had loves. He lost. He used his God given talents for three decades. He came from poverty and earned his family a quality of life they could never have  dreamed of.

He didn’t care about color. He was loyal. He had a temper. He had charisma x1000000000000000000000000000. He was a spiritual man. He loved the voices of others in many musical genres.

The video I have put into this post, thanks YouTube, contains some of the most sincere and honest comments Elvis ever made before a live audience starting at (approximately) the 1 minute mark begining with “this is the probably the greatest honor I’ve ever had in my life”….

I say no more.
