He sure was a beautiful man. I never get tired of seeing him or hearing him!

Sure do love him still. I had a chance to see him in July of '77 in Las Vegas . . . being 17 and too cool to see him we went to see Peter Frampton instead. Of course Elvis died the following month and I have been kicking myself ever since for missing this once in a lifetime opportunity. I was too cool then I guess.

Blessings,

Sher

That's a beautiful song!

How sad. The words he sang, "When I'm growing old and feeble..." and he never did.

Southern Lady said...

That was beautiful, Rhonda ... and a very nice way to start my day.

Thank you for sharing it with us.

You know, I wasn't a fan until after his death...we went to Graceland in '87 and people from all over the world were still bringing floral sprays to lay on his grave 10 years later. Bo

I remember my Dad listening to his songs when I was a kid... My uncle who lived in Colorado back in the 60's used to send to my Dad lot's of "LP". Great song! :) Vanessa

Morning Scooter...oh I loved Elvis and even now I cry when I hear him sang...I wasn't one of those screaming teenage fans....I just always thought he was such a part of history..he was like no other...I remember sitting in the living room with my new born son when the news came on the TV that he had died..I just sat there silently rocking the baby as tears fell down my face..I loved hearing him sang gospel songs...

Oh Rhonda!! That Elvis was so special. I dreamed about him so much after he died! What a beautiful song, too!
Can't wait to see what you're doing, too! No, I'll have to go and buy that mag. Thanks.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Beautiful, Rhonda! Thanks!

Our grandson, Drew was born on Elvis' birthday, in 2006. Anyone walking past the waiting room, that night, could here Drew's family, singing Elvis songs, as we awaited our precious boy's arrival.

Good Morning Miz Rhonda,
There will never be another like him, he was such an amazing talent. I remember the day he died, I cried for a week atleast. I used to love watching his movies on tv, they would have Elvis week every so often and I would hurry home from school to tune in. *smiles*
Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!

Have a great weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette
