I believe, friend, you will find as I have, the moment the last letter of the manuscript was typed, that not only you love him GREATLY, but after reading ELVIS - THROUGH MY EYES, you will feel closer to him in person and you may love him and all that he was in his "no way out" life as a close dear friend. Hopefully, you will know and understand the truth of the man as I have grown to know ELVIS who crossed his river Jordan.

    ELVIS THROUGH MY EYES - EXCERPTS

    FORWARD No biography of Elvis Presley can be too long, or too short, and should only be judged on the value it imparts to the reader. The fact is that The King of Rock 'n' Roll came from a deeply religious family, and if Presley is made to apologize for that shortcoming in light of very questionable career decision, beginning as early as 1957 and the movie Loving You and his script character, Deke Rivers, then there is truly no justice in this life time. END FORWARD EXCERPT What follows is the truth the way that truth has never before been told, and by Jimmy Denson, Elvis's closest boyhood friend. Perhaps it may even be more accurate to say it is the truth told my the only one who could possibly know the real story. There were times when Jimmy Denson come home at two or three o'clock in the morning and would be surprised to see Elvis looking out the big glass window that was between the first and second floor. The window looked down on Third Stret and St. Joseph's Hospital and Jackson Avenue. From there he could see ambulances and police cars going into St. Joseph's Hospital at night. Elvis was truly a sad and lonely boy and later in life he, too, became a recluse just like his mother, Gladys. After an engagement, Elvis always disappeared to his suite upstairs. At times like this his personal privacy was very sacred to him. Elvis Presley was reported killed in a plane crash at Louisville and his body was at the Manning Funeral Home in Louisville - FBI Dockets/Freedom of Information Privacy Acts Section. He's a member of everyone's family from that era. He was a very sensitive one, such a dynamic personality, a loving and caring person. He cared more about other people than he did himself. He worried about maids and cooks.
