I have heard from a few non-Elvis fans who believe Elvis is buried like some common animal in his backyard,which really steams me. I say no he is buried on the grounds of Graceland (actually on the right corner) with a beautiful fountain and a wall with stained glass windows in front of it. And i say Elvis' mother, father , Grandmother are buried there as well. And they think it's tacky to be buried at home..not to mention the place he died, doesn't help either!Attachment 29845

If it makes you feel any better, having a family plot on the property was something common in the early South. In fact, there are many homes around the South that still have the family plots. They have nice walls erected around them with places for the living to sit and meditate. I've seen many on my travels throughout the Southeast.
As a common animal, oh well what can I say, when we will be all bones or ashes, we will not be so diferent from our beloved pets. It wont bother me a bit if they just throw my ashes with the organic garbage disposal if my memory is truly in a nice spot on their minds so...
Actually I think it's kind of sweet since he loved Memphis and Graceland so much. There is no other better place for his final resting place to be.
Or as Jack Kerouak put it: "I hope that is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others, but give them life and not only life, but that great consciousness of life".

I find the idea of being buried on your own property among your loved ones that have passed on very comforting.
I would give my say...........but it would have to be bleeped out.
I think it is good that Elvis is buried on the grounds of Graceland.
When my father died I tried to get permission to bury him in our own 'backyard'...sadly we were not allowed .
I like Lainey's description of the family plots in the South.
Btw we have a big plot for our 'common animals' in our backyard and I know my father would have loved the idea to be buried next to them.
That makes me mad that is his home the one place in world he loved so those people are retarted he's with his family what's so wrong with that.
It is true that all around the US in the 1800s familys had a small section reserved for burying their family. In Illinois we have quite a few farms with family graveyards-just can't bury anyone new in them today.
Work in Progress!
Don't kill the messanger! I was just saying what ignorant non-elvis fans have said to me. Yes, they do that to get my reaction! And no, they don't say it after i tell them what they can do with their "theory" about Elvis's burial spot!
