“Elvis Aaron Presley, January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977. Son of Vernon Elvis Presley and Gladys Love Presley, father of Lisa Marie Presley. He was a precious gift from God we cherished and loved dearly. He had a God-given talent that he shared with the world, and without a doubt, he became most widely acclaimed; capturing the hearts of young and old alike. He was admired not only as an entertainer, but as the great humanitarian that he was; for his generosity, and his kind feelings for his fellow man. He revolutionized the field of music and received its highest awards. He became a living legend in his own time, earning the respect and love of millions. God saw that he needed some rest and called him home to be with Him. We miss you, Son and Daddy. I thank God that He gave us you as our son. (TCB logo) —Vernon Presley”
