Elvis Presley a lifelong appreciation

I have had great things occur in my life (i.e. marriage, children, grandchildren, friends, family, passions, etc.) as well as setbacks and soul wrenching…losses.

I have lived in various parts of the  United States that, growing up, I never imagined I would visit let alone spend parts of my life.

My story is unique as is everyone’s. The same is true about my faith, foundation, beliefs, and even my shortcomings/faults.

I became an Elvis Presley fan between the age of 1 and 2 years old. How do I know this you say? Well, I have home movies of me trying to stand up listening to the record player with many Elvis albums. Not only did I gravitate to music but as I grew into a young man/teen I became a fan of Elvis the man along with Elvis the singer/performer.

I have listened to every song Elvis sang and I have my favorites as I do various times in his career. I never imagined that I would be, as I am now, TWELVE years older than Elvis was when (sadly) he died. Man…

There are so many things I love, and at times long for, about my life in years gone by. And Elvis music, in part, has been the soundtrack of my life. But I don’t shy away from Elvis’ low points in his career or his failing health and reliance on medications over a period of decades. I, as I do everyone, believe context matters and in any reasonable criteria Elvis Presley was…truly unique and exceptional.

I have been very blessed to get to know so many who worked with, were related to, were loved by, were befriended by, etc. Elvis Presley. The relationship I have for each of these wonderful people is something I cherish.

Elvis Presley was a man of quality and I was fortunate to have lived during exciting times in his career. Though I have a website, forum. blog(s), etc. about Elvis I have opted to share some of my insights, facts, expertise, etc. over the past many years it is only the tip of the iceberg.

I look forward to 2017 and I wish everyone all the best in life.

Take care and may God bless you.
