When the Meditation Gardens were built, they weren't built for Elvis to be buried there. There were only built as a place for Elvis to go and have some 'quiet' time to himself.

Her name was Sandy Kawelo.

Jerry fell for her when he joined Elvis on location in Hawaii for "Paradise, Hawaiian Style" in August 1965. She was one of the dancers on the film.

Sandy, Elvis - "Paradise, Hawaiian Style" - August 1965

She and Jerry got married a few years after the 1966 Graceland photos were taken.

I'll say this once again:

When the Meditation Gardens were built, they weren't built for Elvis to be buried there. There were only built as a place for Elvis to go and have some 'quiet' time to himself. He was only laid to rest in the Meditation Gardens simply because of the foiled bodysnatching attempt on August 29, 1977.

Once again, we're readin' too much into these photos....Elvis didn't have the Meditation Gardens designed as a burial spot for himself nor his family.

Not sure anyone's arguing otherwise. That doesn't stop it being, in hindsight (knowing now what Elvis couldn't have then), a little ironic, creepy, or whatever else to see Elvis standing where now he is buried. The area was not designed as a burial site but, sure enough, that's what it has since become.

You know, if you think about it, how many pictures do people have of others standing on the ground in which they would utlimately be buried?

Not arging with you Tony, I don't think he had a 'premonition' or anything. Just us looking back on something we now know, and he didn't :( :( :(

I've not been to Graceland.

Are the graves where the fountains are ?

Or where they are standing ?

If you're walking from the poolhouse to the Meditation Gardens, the graves are situated behind th e fountains in a semi-circular pattern .

It's really quite a solemn and emotional moment when you first walk in there on the tour and see the graves for yourselves....it's a moment that I'll never forget as long as I live - or for that matter, the entire trip - the trip was actually a Christmas present back in the early 2,000s from a couple of lady friends of mine - and it's something that I'll cherish for the rest of my life.. I would give anything in the world to be able to go back to Graceland/Memphis just once more and be able to stay more than the one day that we stayed there. :(
