From a letter to Wanda years ago about her time with Elvis in the 1970s:

It wasn’t so strange for me, except I was shy and scared of the things going on around there all the time, I was like a little kid among strangers all adults and doing adult things, talking and coming and going. Elvis would hold my hand, standing beside me, and he would take me over to sit down and say I’ll be right back baby, it’s okay. Then he’d do his thing, singing and playing with the guys and I just sat there quietly, a few times I fell asleep. He carried me to his bed, covered me up and said; sleep well honey, good night.

And sometimes I woke up there with him asleep on the other side; he was a gentleman, he never took liberties and respected me in so many ways. Sometimes he sent me down to the smaller suite below his and would say he’d send for me when he wanted me to come back up. I didn’t mind that, I saw his shows every night, could order anything I wanted to eat and he said I could buy clothes if I wanted to but I didn’t do much of that, it didn’t seem right to me.

I knew how sensitive he was and how loving and good. Nothing he ever did would hurt me for that reason. I understood him…and all that he had to put up with for so long and he had no escape. I knew that.

I went my way, to live life normally, something he could never do he said, and I realized that was true. I got married and was happy. My memories of him were wonderful and I loved to hear him on the radio or see him on tv. The day he died I thought my heart was ripped from my chest; I just couldn’t believe he could be gone. It was like the sun was suddenly dimmed, the stars faded and the moon cried all the time. And it was true. He was gone.

I’ll always love him and hold him in my dreams. He is my Elvis forever and he belongs to the whole world. We all love him because he was love it’s self-he didn’t know anything else to do but love everyone he could, in all the ways that he could. That was Elvis way, just love everybody and to hell with the rest of it.

I miss him so sometimes, other times he is right beside me, holding my hand.

This letter warms my heart as I read it. Elvis was all about love and this gal could see it. She could see past the image into the real person. I'm glad she wrote the letter and thanks to Wanda & Maia for sharing it.

Elvis was such a global being - why not say it? A UNIVERSAL BEING! Here's this fellow who barely get out of his home or hotel room when he is not on stage and yet appealed and still appeals to people all over the world. When I would go to Vegas to see him, there would be ladies in sari's from India...aall languages spoken in the lines. And the people who worked there said it was not that way (anywhere near to that extent) for the other stars who performed there.

World's hunger for LOVE responds to Elvis, then and now, like a sunflower turns to Sun.

Each one attuned to Elvis, may become a Sun to others, too. See the picture?
