I hope that he would have gotten healthy and lived a more peaceful life. I think he would still do the occasional performance for special projects. I was watching a Gaithers Homecoming on TV Sunday (JD was on it) and I mentioned to my husband that if Elvis were still alive he would love those videos and would probably be on some of them. He may even be in a gospel quartet too. I think that gospel music was his first love in music.
Mainly though I would want him to just be happy and not have to live up to the image any longer. That is too much stress for anybody.
