Elvis Week Meditation Garden Graveside
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
Elvis, Vernon, and Gladys Presley are all buried at Graceland in the Meditation Garden area in the massive backyard, along with his grandmother and Elvis's twin brother Jesse Garon who died at birth.
This Friday, August 16th, 2013 will be the 36th Anniversary of the passing of the King of Rock n Roll.
Elvis Aaron Presley, he will be in my heart and the heart of the world forever.
Standing at this graveside I felt peaceful, not sad for some reason. I stood there for a long time, it was hard to leave. Somehow it seems wrong when a gift from God is taken away at 42 years old.
