How many people here write Letters to the Editor in support of our man?

Elvis fans really should take the opportunity now we have access to the media.

Elvis is really the best. I grew up hearing Elvis and screaming over him. It was hard when I was young because he went into the army and then when he came out he made movies and I wanted to be able to go and see him in person. My wish came true and I saw him several times in person, even got a kiss in Vegas. So sad to see him gone, but legend continues. I like to buy the pictures and "Elvis stuff" available today. It's a habit I have never lost - I see his picture or name and I'm drawn to whatever it is. It never ceases to amaze me what they have with his picture on it. I put Elvis fabric under my tree this year. I only wish some of this stuff would have been available when I was a teenager and so hungry for anything "Elvis." I think the world will always have Elvis. And that's a "good thing."

Hi Scarlett! We must be about the same age. I was a Vegas goer too, and my memories of the shows and being kissed...are very sweet. Our generation is starting to leave to be with ELVIS now....I hope the young ones will carry on the torch...

A toast to Scarlett for our sweet mutual memories.(((Scarlett)))

I loved Elvis, and surely won't forget him. A Great and wonderful singer. Such a pretty man.

Thanks for your love and lovely post of Elvis, Scarlett! Hey I would rather have Elvis than the stuff--guess we had him then! Tell us about the kiss girl!

What more can I say? Words are not enough to describe why Elvis is the best among the rest. His charisma and magic simply defied explanation and you really need to be hooked on him to understand why he is different.

It is a lovely statement, Rico.
