This is from Kathy Westmoreland
So. It’s your birthday. You’d be 83. I’m 72 now. Funny. Remember the night I told you how much I loved your perfectly pure silver sideburns and wished you’d let them glow? Your smile as you raised your head quickly back and up as you said, half-giggling...“Maybe when I’m 40. Okay?”. Well? Hmm. Just never got around to it, did ya.
Also thinking of how many times during battle you’d say,
“Love and Hate Go together’ as you smirksmiled. Then, “You’ll always belong to me, Kathy!’ as I stormed away...”You’ll Understand it...Farther along”. It’s Farther Along NOW, Elvis! And I still don’t understand “it”!
There really is no name for the type of love we shared. It was just “Weird”. So I thought I’d remind you of one of our favorite verses we read together so many times. Gibran’s thoughts on Love, from “The Prophet” Before we met for goodness sakes we had each underlined the same passages in our own copies!
Wish you were near...and Hey! I’m still a “Seeker” as we both were, and wonder if you have all the answers now. Good grief! Even though I’m now 30 years older than you were the last time we were together on this round rock planet earth----I sure hope we recognize each other when we meet again.
Happy Birthday, and...Love you.

Both Elvis and his class mates dated this as the beginning of his rise of fame.According to Elvis: “I wasn’t popular in school. I wasn’t dating anybody. And then they entered me in this talent show, and I came out and did my “Till I Waltz Again With You” by Teresa brewer. It was amazing how popular I became after that”.

A reporter asked the following to Elvis, "Elvis, I spoke to a woman yesterday and she said you were the most beautiful person she's ever seen. Now, my question is, who's the most beautiful person you've ever seen?" Elvis replied to this question with an answer that Elvis always believed to be true - he replied to the reporter, "My mother
