Fifty years ago today marked the saddest day in Elvis' life. Elvis, who had just joined the army, lost his beloved mother. Gladys died with Vernon by her side. Elvis was heartbroken and friends say he never fully recovered from that unbareable loss. Gladys was laid to rest on August 15. Be sure to check our Member's Area for a tribute to Elvis and Gladys

Thanks Jen and Nettie for the article and video. Hard to believe that it's been 50 years already that Gladys is gone.

Dear Gladys,

Thank you for giving us ELVIS.
We loved him too. Even though
you are both missed here on earth
I am glad you two can hold hands once again.

Bless you always,

Carole

Poor lady. She didn't look too well after Elvis' breakthrough.

But she was so important to him. It's still special to see such a warm mother-child relationship.
