PHOTO: THROUGH THIS HAUNTING IMAGE LIES ELVIS PRESLEY - - You are given a candle from Graceland folk. They light it as you walk through the gates. Along the way, if they candle burns out, they will light it again. Before approaching Meditation Garden, once again, that is taken care of if needed. Plus, the conversation stops and a peaceful reflection takes place. Tears of loss and tears of joy are all shed. It is truly a sight to experience. There is no hatred, no jealousy and no need for theatrics. One will get it after going through this. You will never be the same and that Gospel and inspirational music will live in your body and soul forever. This is more just a walk by past a grave of an icon. It will be forever etched between the pages of your minds - and hearts.

Songs I noted before the ceremony: for the troops ("America the Beautiful" and as the candles were lit, "If I Can Dream" - - theme this year is "I'll Never Know" as noted by Elvis Country Fan Club...and then "The Lord's Prayer." Yes, he sang it...and "I Believe" --- see rock and rockabilly doesn't dominate this night ...or week, to be honest...closing song was "Can't Help Falling in Love."
ELVIS 35 FEEDS - CANDLELIGHT VIGIL - *8:30 P.M. CT - it takes 8 hours for 30,000 people to get by and there will be more than that who want to get by...that is this one event (100,000 or more are here...)..feed will be in the comment zone...Like · · Share
