Thanks Funky for those pix. They sure bring back memories of a very sad time 29 years ago.

All the newspapers as well as radio- and TV-stations in Denmark were filled with reports from Memphis for more than a week. I bought every newspaper and magazine I could get my hands on and filled scrapbook after scrapbook with articles and photographs I'd never seen before.

I wish I had owned a video-recorder at the time but they were expensive and rare in Denmark back then.

Reports and photographs from those days back in August 1977 when the world lost a great entertainer and man can still fill my eyes with tears.

Elvis, we miss you.

Sincerely
Brian
