So sad

Gladys got to live only two more years after Elvis's great success. She had so much more than the sticks she was raised in, but I don't believe it changed her down home values one bit. She must have been a very sweet lady and I know it crushed Elvis when she died.

Hey mom, can we talk?

Looks like Elvis has visited his mom's room to have a heart to heart. My kids would do this often especially when they were teens. They seemed to think Mom had the best perspective and advice on anything. Fortunately, for me they still do. I love being a mom.

Nice pic for Mother's Day!

Even the King had a Mom.
