Being an Irish Twin, the one thing I knew would happen every year is that I would catch up to my sister in age for a little while. What a fun game to play as we grew up. As adults, no matter where we were, we called each other and simply mentioned that. Nothing else, sometimes, other than that. Then, on her birthday, she would call and tell me she passed me again. We got each other. We knew when to talk, laugh and shut up. I protected her as she did me. There was that unspoken bond that can never be broken - - NOT EVEN IN DEATH! So long Mar (as I call her)..."If we never meet again this side of Heaven," we will meet one day on that beautiful shore. And let's not remember how she died, but, rather, how she lived - - AND SHE DID LIVE
"Lead Me, Guide Me": "I am tired how I need thy strength and power to guide me over my darkest hour."
"If I Can Dream" - "There's a beckoning candle..." Now, light those candles in memory and let the flame light up the night because with death there is "No More Night."
Now, as I approach my 49th birthday on June 2, I will catch her once again. However, she will forever be 49. Her age forever etched into the pages of our minds...

The yearlong 35th anniversary commemoration of the life and legacy of Elvis Presley continues in Memphis with the third and largest exhibit launching at Graceland in 2012. Check out the photo gallery from the "ICON: The Influence of Elvis Presley Presented by Fender" Exhibit which will be open March 1, 2012 through February 2013.
Curated by the Graceland archives team in partnership with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, this groundbreaking exhibit features 75 artifacts on loan from the famed Cleveland museum, along with items from the collections of many of today’s biggest names in music who have been influenced by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. The exhibit celebrates Elvis’ status as a music pioneer and icon that paved the way for many of today’s artists and celebrities. Items on display in this exhibit include Bono’s “MacPhisto” suit from U2’s Zooropa performances, Bob Dylan’s leather jacket that appears on the album cover "Real Live,” James Brown’s jumpsuit and vest worn in concert in the 1970s, along with artifacts from Elton John, Trisha Yearwood, Joan Jett, Wanda Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, The Beatles, Katy Perry and many others.
Grammy award-winning artist Amy Grant, a well-known Elvis fan, gladly accepted the invitation to display her personal copy of lyrics for “Heartbreak Hotel,” handwritten for her by the songwriter, Mae Axton. “The ink is fading on the page, but the special memory of spending time with one of the great writers who gave Elvis a song to sing never will,” said Grant when asked about being included in the unique exhibit.
Earlier in 2012, two additional exhibits opened at Graceland. "Elvis on Tour" celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Golden Globe award-winning documentary of the same name. The documentary takes an in-depth look at Elvis’ multi-city tour during April of that year. Artifacts from the exhibit include the producer’s Golden Globe award, jewelry and stage clothing worn by the king during the concerts, rarely-seen photos, videos and more.
A new addition to the VIP Tour, "Elvis…Through His Daughter’s Eyes" opened on February 1, Lisa Marie Presley’s birthday, and highlights the relationship between Elvis and his only child. Presley was personally involved in the exhibit’s development and planning. Visitors will see numerous items including family photos and home movies that explore her experience of growing up at Graceland and the relationship with her famous father. Artifacts include Presley’s baby footprints, clothing, childhood tricycle, record player, crib, gold ID bracelet given to her by Elvis and much more.
Graceland is open year round with various tour options. "ICON: The Influence of Elvis Presley Presented by Fender" is included in the VIP and Platinum Tours. For more information on tours and for a FREE online trip planner, please visit Elvis.com.
