    Small statue for Forest Hill

    Memphis News... When we're travelling to Memphis, we always include a stop at the Mausoleum of Forest Hill Cemetery where Elvis's body was laid to rest on August 16th 1977. A few months later, early October of 1977, Elvis's body and that of his beloved mother Gladys were transported to the Meditation Garden next to Graceland. For years, fans visited the crypt with only a few flowers indicating the exact spot where Elvis once was laid to rest. This year, we spotted a small statue in the crypt. We were told that this was placed by the staff of Forest Hill Cemetery and will stay in the crypt for the next several years as a token of respect for Elvis.

    Rosanne and I saw that statue of Elvis in the crypt when we were in Memphis in July. It is very touching and a nice tribute to him.

    it was about time IMO
    It's hard NOT to imagine Elvis as perfect; how else could someone be THAT good looking, THAT talented, THAT generous & THAT charismatic
