I’m a lot of an Elvis fan. I remember my mum swooning at this swarthy man and me watching old films with her.
I fell in love with him just like she did.
I believed one day I’d meet him and get to say to him, Love me tender. Well of course that’s a young girls dream with any pop star.
But then this guy was and never will be your run of the mill pop star.
The day he died I remember being so traumatised by his death that my school sent a lot of us home to be with our parents.
I cried for days.
Then I wrote a letter to Vernon his father.
Weeks later I got a reply. I still have that reply,
It is written on a white thank you card in pen. Thanking me for my condolences and reminding me that in our hearts those we love live on forever.
Today I miss my mum, and Elvis just because he was my dream man.
Why am I rambling?
I actually went to do a 50’s photo when I came across this quaint sim by accident. There he was. Elvis!!
