My closest friend, M J wrote the following  comment which she posted on another of our pages and I want to share it here for all to read.  I thank her, from the bottom of my heart, for always being there for me and Jesse.

WHY?

Why is it that some people can’t see the truth even when it is staring them in the face? Why is it that some people can’t realize, can’t understand the truth even when it is shown to them by way of near close to 70 pages of documentation? Why is it that some people can’t hear the truth even when it is the very voice that they claim to love? Why is it that some people are such cowards as to point the finger of accusation at Linda, when it is they themselves, as they must surely realize in their hearts, that are the wrongful parties here.

I have had the great privilege, the great honor of knowing my friend, my very best friend, “my sister”, Linda Hood Sigmon for many years now, ever since she began her newsletter, “Notes For The Record” back in 1990. She is all that she says she is, both fan and friend to Elvis Presley who is now Jesse. She is his spokesperson, his voice and yes, his “little sister”. But I will tell you what she is not. She IS NOT a liar. She IS NOT a delusional fan. She IS NOT someone seeking glory by association to the most famous man that has ever lived. She IS his friend. Simply that, she IS his friend.

Every word that appears here on her website is the truth. It is the writings, the documentation, the great detective work, the TRUTH, that has and is shared with us, fellow fans, by Linda. It is because that she is Jesse’s friend that she chooses to do this. Caringly, lovingly, sharing the truth with us, with the world, as to the truth into Elvis’ life then, and Jesse’s life, today. She does not have to put herself out there, to accept the insults, the lies, the cutting barbs and hurtful words, the slings and arrows of those who choose not to believe that Elvis is now Jesse, whether by their own ignorance or fear that in by accepting that fact, they are going to lose “their” place of standing in other fan’s eyes. No, she does not have to put herself out there, but she does so. Readily. Because she knows without doubt, without hesitation, without pause that Elvis Presley is Jesse. And she just wants to share this with every other fan…

One final thought, as Linda has shared here on her website, when she first asked Jesse about the DVD, “Elvis Found Alive”, he said that he had not done an interview with anyone. After careful thought and sleepless nights he decided to share the truth with Linda, that yes, that is his actual voice on both the DVD and CD. While Linda’s initial question caught him off guard, because the producer of the DVD and CD promised to give him advance word prior to release date, this DVD and CD is a joyous happenstance for Elvis fans everywhere, while still coming about at the manipulating hands of Joel Gilbert to Jesse. Where initially, based on Jesse’s first answer to Linda’s question, Linda attacked the DVD ferociously on her website. Given the new bit of news, from Jesse, that yes, that is his actual voice on said DVD and CD, what was she to do? In asking this of Jesse, he told her that she may address this however she wished. Leaving her attacks on the DVD up and unchanged or sharing with the fans, the truth, that yes, Jesse has told her, this is his voice on both the DVD and CD. He gave her the option. He WAS NOT looking for her to push, to promote either the DVD or CD. He IS NOT getting any financial gain from the sale of either. And certainly NEITHER is Linda. Because Linda has always strove to tell nothing but the truth on her site, she chose to go forth and post the truth as shared with her by Jesse. I hope that this clarifies and truly opens the door of understanding for all those naysayers, critics and nonbelievers.

For all those that are still unsure or choose to non believe, I urge you to go to the YouTube site below and listen. Just listen. Open your minds, open your hearts. Is this not the voice of the man that you claim to love? Is this not the voice of the man whose records you bought, whose movies you would go to see, whose TV specials you watched, whose appearances in Las Vegas and your own home towns were sold out, time and time again because of your very love for and need to see him in person? Is this not the voice of that man? I dare you to say that it is not…
With love,
MJ

My Dear friend, Susan, sent an Email suggesting that I post this song by Elvis in response to those who continue to publish their lies about Elvis/Jesse and me on their pages and forums.  It probably won’t phase them, I am sure…but it is one of my favorite gospel songs by Elvis.  Maybe it will penetrate at least one of their minds:

Elvis Presley – Run On

Author Unknown.

Elvis recorded this traditional gospel song on May 25, 1966 at RCAs Nashville Studios at the first recording produced by Felton Jarvis. Run On was the first song recorded during the session. It is available on Amazing Grace: His Greatest Sacred Songs and Artist of the Century.

Well you may run on for a long time
Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty’s gonna cut you down

Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty’s gonna cut them down

Stop God almighty let me tell you the news
My head’s been wet with the midnight dews
Coming down on my bended knees
Talking to the man from Galilee
My God spoke and he spoke so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of angel’s feet
He put one hand upon my head
Great God almighty let me tell you what he said

Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time,
Let me tell you God almighty’s gonna cut you down

You may throw your rock and hide your hand
Working in the dark against your fellow man
As sure as God made the day and the night
What you do in the dark will be brought to the light
You may run and hide, slip and slide
Trying to take the mote from your neighbor’s eyes
As sure as God made the rich and poor
You gonna reap just what you sow

You may Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty’s gonna cut you down
Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty gonna cut them down

Some people go to church just to sit in the fire
Trying to make a date with the neighbor’s wife
Brother let me tell you as sure as you’re born
You better leave that woman alone
Because one of these days mark my word
You think that brother is going to work
And you’ll sneak up and knock on that door
That’s all brother you’ll knock no more
Run on for a long time,
Run on for a long time
Let me tell you God almighty’s gonna cut you down

Go tell that long tongued liar, oh well well
Go tell that midnight rider, oh well well
Tell the gambler, rambler, back-biter
Tell them God almighty’s gonna cut them down

WEDNESDAY, MAY 2, 2012

Yesterday I received a link in my news alert for which the criteria is “Elvis is Alive”.  Below is my introduction to an article which I just added to the page titled:  THE LIES ABOUT ELVIS – COMPLETE WEB SITE PAGE

I will only display my introduction and closing of my article.  You may visit the above page (the title is the link) if you wish to read this long diatribe by Jon Cotner.

My Introduction:

Yesterday I received a Google news alert under my search criteria for “Elvis is Alive”.  Oddly enough it turned out to be a very lengthy posted comment written by Jon Cotner and posted by his follower who uses the name “Sweetheart”.  Naturally, this person does not want to put her name on this slanderous piece of trash directed to Jesse and me too.

I will insert the full content below.  I choose to display this because, once more, it shows the caliber of the character of Jon Cotner and his supporters.  Cowards hiding behind fake user names to disguise their true identity.  If they are so proud of themselves and each other, why do they not put their names on what they write as I always do?

Following is another piece of their work:

Here is the link to this forum on ElvisCommunity:

http://www.elviscommunity.com/service/displayDiscussionThreads.kickAction?as=27782&w=105118&d=872713

Notice the tone of his diatribe…not very consistent with someone who is selling Bible Study CD’s is it?

from Jon Cotner

This message was posted for Jon Cotner:

LETTER TO JESSE (and dontexist, too)

My Closing Comment:

I won’t pick Cotner’s lies apart piece by piece to discredit them…my 67 pages of truth knocks the footing right out from under this diatribe of nonsense and sarcasm.

I will state though, unequivocally, that I have NEVER once said that Elvis/Jesse is going to make a come back. I have repeatedly said that he just wants to live his life out as Jesse in private and in peace.

———-

It shows that Cotner’s above comment was posted 6 days ago…so I suppose this is his “professional” response to some of what I have written.

Jon Cotner and his crowd have gone into a panic since Jesse’s CD has come out because they know that it is going to prove once and for all that Jon Cotner is not Elvis and that he has been playing cruel tricks on those who hear him in Paltalk, etc. 

Their panic has thrown them into overdrive running around writing long ill planned articles of attack against Jesse and me.  They are painting themselves into a very unpleasant corner and they are getting in deeper and deeper with each thing they do. Cotner has not responded to my direct message to him on Facebook…not surprising though.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2012

Below is a very well put together YouTube video consisting of  several excerpts from Jon Cotner’s chat room visit on PalTalk in 2008.  The creator of this video is confronting Jon Cotner about his inconsistencies and giving Cotner a chance to respond to this video.  As of this day, Cotner has not responded to him…just as he has not responded to my Facebook message to him.

Once you hear him speak in these excerpts, I promise everyone will KNOW that Jon Cotner is not Elvis.  Just as once you listen to the 15 songs by Jesse on the ELVIS FOUND ALIVE CD, you will KNOW that Jesse is Elvis.

This is really the bottom line on this whole Cotner mess. 

Because they posted that I would walk away and “stop wasting my time and space” proving that they are lying, I will continue to kick sand in their faces for as long as it takes to prove to everyone who reads my material that Jon Cotner is a “phony and is overstepping his bounds” just as Jesse said.

Please do watch this video:

Jon can you answer why all the Drama when I was correct on the first video. Here is the original room recording from 2008.. You are welcomed to post your reply to this video explaining …. Jon, yours will be the only reply approved. This is not going to be a circus or a fight it is your chance to answer .. It is not a are you or not.. it’s a why the lie… on the original video

 

<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

Below are three examples of the way Elvis was feeling about being “Elvis” in the year preceding his “death“.  Perhaps seeing all three of these in one place will help everyone to be more compassionate in accepting what he did and why he did it.

 

The above is from Donnie Sumner’s new book titled:  “In The Shadow of Kings“.

This book is an autobiography of Donnie Sumner.  It does not have as much in it about Elvis as I had thought when I purchased it.

***********

Below is one of my earlier articles regarding some excerpts from the book by Gene Smith, Elvis’s first cousin and life-long closest friend.  You will see the covers of Gene’s book below where you may see the title.

You will see that Elvis invited Gene and Gene’s wife Louise to Graceland early in August, 1977. The private words which Elvis spoke to Gene are VERY significant. Elvis told Gene the same thing that he had spoken to a number of other people “…so tired of being Elvis Presley“. I am certain that Elvis knew this would be the last time that he would see Gene…a “goodbye” visit…and a “goodbye” comment.

Gene Smith, who was Elvis’ first cousin and closest lifelong friend says that he did not believe it was Elvis in the coffin.

THE FOLLOWING IS THE NEXT TO LAST PAGE OF GENE’S BOOK. TAKE SPECIAL NOTE OF THE LAST SENTENCE WHICH IS FINISHED ON THE NEXT PAGE:

Clearer copy of the last two sentences on the above page:

 

 

THE FOLLOWING IS THE VERY LAST PAGE IN GENE’S BOOK

PLEASE NOTE: Sivle Yelserp is the backward spelling of Elvis Presley which was sometimes used to avert attention to Elvis…a code name. This is mentioned earlier in Gene’s book.

 

I heartily recommend Gene’s book…covers shown below:

You may see my full page devoted to Gene at:

Gene Smith, Elvis’ first cousin and closest lifelong friend says it was not Elvis in the coffin.

On that page, you will be able to watch a video of Gene detailing the reasons that he knew that it was not Elvis in the coffin.

Please remember that Gene was sent to Gail Brewer-Giorgio by Elvis after Elvis promised Gail, in Oct. 1988 during their phone conversation, that he would send her “ammunition”.  It was also Gene who told Gail that if she would have the handwriting on the death report analyzed, it would prove that Elvis, himself, filled out that report.

I am so sad that Gene has passed away. 

I feel certain that, were Gene still alive, he would help me too...with Jesse’s permission, of course.

************

Below is an excerpt from the book by Elvis’ private nurse Marian Cocke. The title of her book is “I Called Him Babe:  Elvis Presley’s Nurse Remembers“.  I love this book and also wholeheartedly recommend it.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

Below is the link to a rare home recording of Elvis singing the song After Loving You.  This is when Elvis was much younger.  But, you will be able to tell that the voice on this recording and the voice on the same song on the new CD are one and the same.  As you can tell by comparing, the voice is older on the new CD…but unmistakably the same person.

A good friend, who is an accomplished musician, has told me that aside from the fact that everything on the new CD is pure Elvis, he can tell that it is an older Elvis because he now sings one key lower than Elvis use to.

Below is another article about the new album to be released in July based on the songs chosen by the votes of Elvis fans.

Fan-Chosen Elvis Presley Compilation to Be Released in July

A new initiative has been launched asking Elvis Presley fans to choose songs that will make up an officially sanctioned compilation scheduled to be released on July 31. I Am an Elvis Fan will feature 21 tunes picked from seven genres — ’50s, ’60s, Movies, Gospel, Country, Love Songs and In Concert. The categories include 13 entries, and the top three vote-getters each grouping will be selected for the final track list. Visit IAmAnElvisFan.com to make your picks. Voting will be open until May 12 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

In addition, the campaign is giving fans the chance to submit photos of themselves for inclusion in a mosaic image that will appear on the cover of the album. Pics will be accepted until June 1. The list of songs for I Am an Elvis Fan and the cover mosaic both will be unveiled on June 15.

Here is an article about a very wise young singer:

Norah Jones inspired by Elvis Presley


Posted: Apr 29, 2012 at 1623 hrs
Norah JonesNorah Jones inspired by Elvis Presley. (Express)
Grammy winning singer Norah Jones’ says she finds inspiration for her music from King of Rock ‘n’ Roll Elvis Presley and his Graceland home in Memphis.The 33-year-old musician, who is the daughter of sitar maestro Ravi Shankar, said everyone should visit Presley’s Graceland home at least once in their lives for inspiration, reported Contactmusic.”I love it in Memphis. It’s the most amazing city full of warm people and great food. Everybody should visit Elvis’ home Graceland once in their lives and while they’re at it they should take a trip to the Sun Records museum. It’s the record label that launched Elvis, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis,” she said.Jones is more inspired by artists from the 50s and 60s than modern musicians.”I’m really inspired by other music and musicians. My fantasy dinner party would include Willie Nelson, Ray Charles Billie Holiday. They’re just some of the people I look up to. I have about 50 musical icons.”

Elvis’s influence will go on for many, many generations.

Well, here we go with a new outlandish rumor from the folks who just cannot accept the truth that Jesse is Elvis and that the new CD ELVIS FOUND ALIVE is Elvis himself singing.

So, now, they are beginning to trot out this impersonator:

Ron Jesse kingtinuing Making The CD I,m Alive Elvis Fantasy Concert 2012

This ain’t the man on Jesse’s CD…listen so you can see for yourself.

Anyone who loved listening to Elvis will love our latest album, Kingtinuing: I’m Alive! Preview and buy at http://kingtinuing.com !

Just someone else trying to make a living off of Elvis’s sound and name.

This young man is a pretty talented singer…but he does not have the unmistakable “Elvis sound and touch“…no one does except Elvis who is now Jesse.

When all the dust settles and all of the detractors have finally given up and gone by the wayside.  Jesse’s CD and my web site will still be here just as strong as it ever has been.  The truth ain’t going anywhere!

Love Me Tender is Next in
Elvis Film Series Lineup

ABILENE, Kan. – “Love Me Tender” is the next movie in a series of films complementing the Elvis at 21 exhibit. The movie will be shown in the Visitors Center Auditorium at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 10. The film is free, open to the public and includes free soda and popcorn.

Love Me Tender movie image

Love Me Tender stars Richard Egan, Debra Paget, and Elvis Presley in his film debut. It is in the Western genre with musical numbers. Because it was Presley’s movie debut, it was the only time in his acting career that he did not receive top billing. Love Me Tender was originally to be titled The Reno Brothers, but when advanced sales of Presley’s “Love Me Tender” single passed one million (a first for a single) the film title was changed to match.

The Elvis film series wraps up with Elvis ’56: In the Beginning on June 26 at 7 p.m. The showing is part of “Late Night at the Museum with Elvis,” which includes a reception and Museum tours and lasts until 9:30 p.m.

The Smithsonian traveling exhibit Elvis at 21, Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer is on display through July 1, 2012. This exhibit was developed collaboratively by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, Govinda Gallery, and the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, and is made possible through the generous support of HISTORY™.

Programs and exhibits at the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home are made possible through private donations to the Eisenhower Foundation.

I just came across this question currently on Yahoo and posted my answer.  Perhaps some others would like to do the same.

Open Question

What 3 songs could Elvis Presley have sung when he was alive to make no#1’s out of?

Elvis has a very impressive amount of number ones, we all know this but if you could pick another 3 what would they be?

Here is the address:  http://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120501113858AA7Otl4

Naturally my three choices came from his current new CD Elvis Found Alive. 

My choices were:

Every Breath You Take,

Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’, and

The Dance.

Of course this is just a “for-fun” thing to do.  But it may introduce someone else to his fantastic CD.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

SATURDAY, MAY 5, 2012

Our dear friend, Susan, has just informed all of us (on our blog page) that the YouTube account of the wonderful lady who had all of Jesse’s songs from his CD available, has had her YouTube account closed because of complaints of copyright infringement. 

This just breaks my heart.  This lady is so very nice and she had been a longtime YouTube client.  She had a vast library of Elvis videos.  I am just distraught to know that she has lost all of that work.

I feel so very bad about this because I feel that those who are attacking me so viciously are responsible for her YouTube account being closed.  It shows the name of the companies who complained.  Joel Gilbert’s company is not listed.  I feel that there was a concerted effort to report this YouTube account to companies whose material was used in her other videos.  I am just sick about this. They don’t care who they hurt in the process.  There is NO reason that this wonderful lady should have to suffer losing her beautiful YouTube account. 

If sourceofmusic1 reads this article, please find a way to let me know if I can do anything to help you or if you find another site on which to display all of your wonderful Elvis videos.  You may message me on the blog page or on the Messages to Jesse page and I will Email you back.  Your Email address will not have to show in the message which you post.

Again, I am just heartsick about this turn of events.

Many people, including myself, have noticed the appearance of significant numbers in this year of 2012.  Those commonly being noticed are that Elvis is 77 this year and he left us in 1977; It has been 35 years since he retired this year and he was born in 1935.

I have noticed that there is one other anniversary number involving this year of 2012.  He took the world by storm in 1956 and this year has been 56 years since that year.

How appropriate that his first publicly acknowledged new CD since 1977, was released in this “perfect” year.

Elvis was/is a spiritual being who had a divine life-purpose far beyond entertaining. He used his God-given talent of song and shared it with people as a means to spread the greater Light which exists within him into the world.

Those who knew him well say that Elvis was a deeply religious man and an avid reader who spent hours reading spiritual books, meditating and praying to find the true meaning of life. Sadly, this deeply spiritual side of Elvis is an often overlooked.

It has been documented that throughout his life Elvis read over a thousand different books, encompassing a wide range of subjects related to philosophy, spiritual teachings and esoteric arts. It is my hope this brief video journey shows you a peek into his very personal Spiritual Journey and origins.

From the phone transcripts of Wanda Hill:

Wanda: You are really into all of that – spiritualism type of things, huh?

Elvis: What-no! Not spiritualism – spiritual development, soul growth and learning to develop the powers we all have lying innate. I’m not a conjure of spirits. I don’t have to, but I am not of this world, either. I know that, I know who I am. I am a man, a human being now, but what is ‘me’ is not from here. I am from out there. Did you ever hear of Rigel? (a star in the constellation of Orion.)

Wanda: No, is it a country or a person?

Elvis: A place, my home is near there – my other home – where I am from, and I have the Blue Star for my sun. I have eight moons and a mansion beneath the outer shell of my planet. You think I’m making this up, but its true – you’ll know that one day. You’ll remember what I told you – before you die – you’ll see some of it happen, and you’ll be involved because you and I are tied together and you don’t know it but I do. I can’t tell you how – I don’t remember it, but I feel it in my heart, in my inner self, and so do you. Why else are we talking about this? Why are you here? Why am I? I care about you because you are a part of my past as I am yours, and together it makes that tie in this life. Because of you and me things will happen – people will do things and have opinions and change minds and perhaps be more content, happier because of you and me knowing each other…that is life.

NEW YORK (AP) — Andy Warhol’s “Double Elvis” sold for $37 million….

Warhol’s “Double Elvis (Ferus Type),” a silver silkscreen image of Elvis Presley depicted as a cowboy, fetched $37,042,500. It had been expected to sell for $30 million to $50 million. The auction house said it was the first “Double Elvis” to appear on the market since 1995. Warhol produced a series of 22 images of Elvis. Nine are in museum collections.

The rock and roll heartthrob is shown armed and shooting from the hip, a shadowy Elvis figure faintly visible in the background. It was offered for sale by a private American collector, who acquired it in 1977.

I want to let everyone know that I just got off the phone with Jesse a little bit ago.  He has just returned from a trip and is resting up.   We didn’t discuss any news for the site tonight.  Just caught up on everyday things that we talk about. 

I want everyone to understand that I never reveal anything private which we discuss.  He doesn’t call me specifically to share information for the site.   But, I try to post a note pretty often when we speak just so that others can enjoy knowing that he is doing all right.

<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

I want to be sure that everyone knows that all of the songs from Jesse’s CD are now back on YouTube so you may enjoy the beautiful videos while listening to his songs.  Below is the link to this channel:

Here is one of my favorites which I have adopted as the theme song for my site.  I have done this jokingly because of all the harsh attacks toward me and the site:

Remember that Jesse told me that I am correct about some of the Orion (Jimmy Ellis) songs actually being by himself. 

The song below has always been a favorite of mine and one which I have always believed to be Elvis himself.

Our friend on YouTube uploaded this song and put it to a beautiful video for me.  I thank her so very much for doing this.

She used a version of the song off of the album “Resurrection” while the version that I have always heard, from the little blue 45 on Orchid of Memphis label, has a different musical accompaniment arrangement.

I subscribe to 123Numerology.com and receive articles from them from time to time.  Today’s article had to do with the question “Is 1 really the loneliest number?”

Included in this article are other numbers known for “loneliness” also.  As we heard Elvis/Jesse say himself, 8’s are lonely people.

Here is what the article which I received today had to say about the number 8 people:

An 8 can be a lonely number simply because they are so busy being pillars of the community that they do not have time for family or lovers. Instead many of them are busy building empires.

The timing in the life of an 8 is also similar to that of a 1. They
are often slave to economics as they tend to employ or take
care of a lot of other people. Their lives are ruled by deadlines
and practical matters.

The 8 can end up lonely because the partner soon realizes that this number is public property. Yet another problem is that the 8 is always in the spotlight.

Does this sound similar to anyone whose life we witnessed?

Elvis Presley sings Mama Liked The Roses

Wishing all those who are a Mama and all those who have their Mamas still with them a wonderful Mother’s day.  Be sure to say “I love you.”

 Uploaded by on Apr 27, 2010

So close was Elvis to his Mother Gladys that the vast majority of Elvis biographers cite this as the single most important bond in his life.
Elvis never got over losing his Dear Mother, this was the saddest moment in his life.

” Mama Liked The Roses ” Elvis is said to have cried the first time that he heard the demo of this Johnny Christopher song.
He recorded it at American Studio on January 16th, 1969.
It was released as the B-side to “The Wonder Of You” In April 1970, and soon after appeared on the 1970 reissue of Elvis` Christmas Album.
Subsequent releases include The Memphis Record, Suspicious Minds: The Memphis 1969 Anthology, From Nashville to Memphis, the 2000 reissue of From Elvis In Memphis and Elvis Inspirational.

Here is a wonderful new video on YouTube.  I have always wondered if Elvis possibly had a hand in the below song as well as DOWN IN MISSISSIPPI.

Down in Mississippi was recorded by “Steven Silver” at Vulcan Studio in Birmingham, Alabama.  My husband and I dropped in on Kenny Wallis the owner of the recording studio for an impromptu afternoon visit.  He treated us like royalty and was so very kind and generous with his time.  He and I had spoken on the phone a number of times, but our visit was a spontaneous side trip during one of our visits to Memphis and Tupelo.  Just a little bit out of the way. LOL

 

SWEET MISSISSIPPI MEMORIES

This is another beautiful song for Mother’s Day.

I just discovered this YouTube video at 1:00 AM, so the event which was being promoted in this Internet radio interview has already passed.

I know that the man in this interview, Mr. Lucky Carson, means well…but he is off the mark about the ELVIS FOUND ALIVE  DVD and Elvis’s intentions.  He, unfortunately, believes the script which Jesse read in the DVD and believes that Elvis is going to make a comeback later this year. 

This is the very kind of thing that I so wish could have been avoided.  Mr. Gilbert has set the stage for some broken hearts and bitter disappointments with the script which he created for the DVD.

A very good friend to our site, Marie, has written to tell me that she has noticed something in the American Idol performance by Celine Dion done “with Elvis” which she feels proves that Elvis is alive.

I had not noticed this fact and have just finished watching a comparison of Elvis singing the original song in the ’68 Comeback Special compared to Elvis “singing” the same song with Celine Dion on the show referenced above.  I do hear exactly what Marie does.

Here is a portion of what Marie wrote to me:

“… If I Can Dream but I just want to stress to you how much proof of Elvis being alive exists in just that one song……….it proves it! I think it would be great for your website, you see as I told you there is a difference in the 2. The A idol one was recorded NEW for that show and that is true. It sounds very similar but as I said to you after Celine sings “deep in my heart there’s a trembling question” Elvis answers with a line of backing “trembling question”………it is definitely a line of backing and was never present in the original which proves that was a new recording for that show and it is definitely Elvis singing that line of backing. I know some of the American idol vids of that are blocked to viewers in U S so if you can’t get it I can email you copies of both versions.”

Marie has, so kindly, sent me a copy of each of the two shows so that we may all see the comparison.  I thank her, so very sincerely from the bottom of my heart, for bringing this to my attention and making it possible for me to share it here for everyone to hear.

This first video is from the ’68 Comeback Special…the original version.

This week will mark the release of Lisa Marie’s new album STORM AND GRACE on Tuesday 15th.

I am looking forward to this album and the media exposure stemming from it’s release.

Below is the link to a very, very good article about Lisa and the content of the album.  This is from a USA Today article…By Marco R. della Cava, USA TODAY

I especially enjoyed reading one comment from Lisa during this interview…it made me go Hm.m.m.m.m.m:

“Speaking of deep passion, the album’s title track provides a little unsolved mystery. Presley says it’s about a specific person, but “it’s not about a romantic relationship. It’s someone really close to me. Because I love this person so much, it was truly, truly painful to write. I cried while singing the demo.”

Some writers are speculating that Lisa is expressing a break from Scientology in the lyrics to at least one of the songs.

She states in this interview:

She won’t name names but suggests that the damage was both personal and professional. “I got bad advice. I was insulated with no grip on reality,” she says. “They were taking my soul, my money, my everything.”

I must explain my absence for the past few days.  Something happened to our site for three days and I was unable to edit my pages at all.  Mark repaired that part for me last night.

Also, our blog page and the Messages to Jesse page also lost all content and no one was able to add to them until, I believe it was, Monday night.  Mark worked many hours to correct that problem.  It may have been caused by someone uploading an image which carried a Trojan virus. 

Some of our problems may be caused by the fact that the site has just grown to be way.y.y.y.y.y.y too big.  Mark tells me that most sites only have 20 or fewer pages and those pages are not so overly full as are mine.  Evidently, my 70+ pages is the equivalent of something like 700 normal site pages.  So, we will have to see where all of this leads us.

For this reason, the option to load images into the comments which visitors post on the blog and message pages has been revised.  I haven’t looked since the revisions were put into place, so I don’t know if images are an option now or not for certain.

I am so very committed to keeping a site open.

Also, last Thursday, I attempted to help my husband lift something very heavy.  I felt and heard a pop in my lower back and had sudden pain.  The pain was pretty severe.  Yesterday, I saw an orthopedic surgeon who did surgery on my neck earlier.  He did an X Ray and found that I do have a compression fracture of my spine in the lumbar area.  Ouch!!!!  He says it may take up to 12 weeks to heal.  He mentioned a full torso brace…but I quickly declined that and am hoping it will heal with time and no lifting.

I know this is all boring, but I wanted to explain why I have been absent from the site since the weekend.  I don’t want the rumors that I have died to start again. LOL

Don’t forget to watch Lisa Marie tonight on American Idol.

It is often very difficult to not feel hatred for those who treat us so unfairly…but

Think on This…
… if the entity allows [the relationships with individuals] to produce a hardening of the heart, or of a determination to get even, or of those conditions that hold for discontent, malice, or otherwise, these must surely bring the destructive forces that build that which the entity must meet; for, in truth, that builded in the mental forces of a body is as ACTIVE in the experiences as must come to the entity as were done in the very material act; for, as was given, “It hath been said, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth; yet I say unto thee, he that hateth his brother is worse than he that DESTROYETH a body.”

 <<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

Our dear friend, Jan, wrote the following letter after seeing the discussion about Jon Cotner on our site recently.  As you will see, Jan has been told that someone actually met/saw Jon Cotner and that he definitely IS NOT ELVIS.

I have observed myself that he is much shorter than Elvis and he certainly is no where near 77 years old.  I have gathered that he is more in his late 50’s or very early 60’s at most.

My heartfelt thanks to Jan for her letter of information and support of the truth on this site.

May 15, 2012

My Dearest Sweet Linda,

I am writing to you in response to all the attacks on you and your website.  I think it is ridiculous and ludicrous that some people are so afraid of the truth that they try to stifle others from tellin it to others. I am quite familiar with JC.   A long time ago before I was fortunate enough to know you and your wonderful website, I ashamedly thought too that JC might be Elvis. I ordered a CD from him with the promise to never display it on YouTube and I have always kept that promise and as a lady and woman of my word  I always will. I listened to it over and over again, but I still wasn’t convinced.

I had a friend who had a friend who had met him face to face and had been in his chat room on numerous occasions.  I did not ever go into his chat room because I was told he could use some colorful and strong language and that’s not my thing. I was told he was much shorter than Elvis and he simply could not sing. I was told he was born in Oklahoma and was married to a schoolteacher and had I believe it was 4 children, not sure about that number.

Then one day I came across your name and website and I couldn’t believe it. My quest for the truth was right before my eyes and God had indeed answered my prayers to lead me to the truth. I use to lie in bed at night with racing thoughts and even cried myself to sleep at times so desperately wantin to know the truth. Linda, you have done nothing wrong darling, if there ever was you’ve done everything right it’s you sweetie.

Your love, loyalty, devotion, giving, caring, honesty, truthfulness, and pains taking hours upon hours of researching all the facts once, twice and again. Everything on your website is fact not fiction, there is no hear say on there. With the things Jesse has told you and your research you sweetie gave my poor heart peace and rest. I know without one single doubt in my mind that Jesse is the real deal. He is the man I have loved since I was 6 for 49 years of my life. Because of you my beautiful, sweet friend I no longer have to wonder and I have been blessed with the opportunity to know Jesse.  To have you my treasured friend and Jesse is a blessing I never fathomed in my wildest dreams and it is a blessing that is priceless to me every day of my life.

Just remember they are attacking because they are running scared of the truth .There is only one Jesse, everybody wants to be him but they can’t for there is and always will be only one. I say to everyone if you loved Elvis, open your hearts and your mind and get to know Jesse the man. He won’t disappoint you for he is more wonderful, loving, caring, and giving and amazing than you can ever imagine. Believe in him and take the wonderful blessing we have been given and savor every moment. I do, and I will never take this opportunity for granted. Believe the truth it’s all here in Linda’s website. She is a wonderful and amazing woman, not the monster that they try to make her out to be. She could have kept the knowledge to herself, but in her loving and unselfish way, she chose to share it with the world .

Thank you my treasured, blessed friend for all you do for us and Jesse. I am the luckiest woman alive because of you. May your days always be happy and blessed. I hope that you and Jesse will always be as happy in your life as you make me every day.

God Bless Always,

Hugs and Smiles,

Love Always, Jan

Our good friend, Frank, has done a graphology analysis of Jesse’s handwriting and a comparison to the handwriting of Elvis.  Needless to say, the writing is by the same person…which has already been proven in the past by Ms. Shirley Mason about whom I have several pages displayed.  She was a court accepted graphologist.

Jesse’s letter to the Attorney General of Missouri written in Dec. 2002

Shirley Mason/ Jesse’s Letter to the Attorney General of Missouri

Video of FOX 8 report interview with Shirley Mason – Jesse’s letter to the Attorney General of Missouri

At the end of this article are copies of the handwriting samples which I furnished to Frank from letters written by Elvis…in the 1950’s and in 1970.

GRAPHOLOGICAL ANALYSIS

The handwriting samples kindly supplied by Mrs Linda Hood Sigmon reveal that the ones written and signed by Mr Elvis Presley and those by “Jesse” belong to the same person; the changes that can be detected have evolved naturally over the decades and are still representative of the same writer, consistently retaining certain mannerism and normal variations within his own handwriting that will be discussed below.

GENERAL IMPRESSION

The writer is an energetic, lively, spontaneous and highly creative person who has a character that veers between his strong emotional impulses, intuitive grasp of the most complex matters and a tendency toward sensual enjoyment of aesthetic perfection on the one hand, and a longing for pristine metaphysical heights that may be attained after he has detached himself from materialism to which he is attracted only superficially but which bores him and threatens his innate creativity and talent for innovation. [flow, speed, ink pressure, angle/slant and upward vs. downward loops, depressed medium letters, original and elegant embellishment]

 The latter is the result of  his remarkable power of associating seemingly diverse elements into a symbiosis, a little like a human synthesizer.[linked sweeping swirls to t/i] The price he has had to pay for harbouring these extremes is that his astute self-criticism may lead to inertia and neglect of routine matters such as looking after one’s health, keeping fit and as a consequence irregular eating-sleeping patterns have led to indigestion and insomnia. [dagger-like downward loop in “g” and “y”, confused medium letters such as “m” and “w”, e/a/o/, wave-like patterns].

The extremes mentioned above are responsible for causing a certain amount of friction in his social life, and as a result the subject tends to have a limited number of friends rather than a great number of so-called close friends. In the 1950s, the subject felt excessively protective towards his family and circle of genuine friends (regarded as family). His nearest and dearest were seen as a safe haven or even cocoon sheltering him from the outside world and the general public. [balloon-like loops from the final letters traced above the words to the left, adroitly crossing t’s from the left as in “the”, “with”, “thing” “front”, “favorites”, “letter”, etc.]

The wide spaces (consistent to the millimeter in all samples) between the individual words indicate that the writer often feels lonely and isolated but also that he requires regular opportunities for spiritual retreat, “away from the madding crowd”, whereas the heart-shaped “P” in the Presley signature reveals his craving for romantic affection.

The capital letters, consistent over several decades, are indicative of a person who attaches enormous importance to coming across as both powerful (even heroic) and spectacular in an unusually extroverted and exotic way, though the medium letters [particularly m/n/c/r/s] betray a rather more diffident private side to his personality. Parental influence looms large and keeps this brilliant and original person humble and modest to the point of attributing all he has achieved to his ancestors instead of his own accomplishment. The subject tends to go out of his way to please his family [first name “squeezed” by prominence of surname in Signature] and may take revenge on “traitors” by using sarcasm or fairly sadistic teasing [sharp downward loop in g/y] even if it goes against his benign and generous character [open o/a and slant to the right].

To reach the spiritual heights mentioned earlier, the writer may be lured by less conventional practices such as Numerology and derive inspiration from (Greek) Mythology and even the Supernatural, though an early weak spot for superstition has been discarded in middle age. [Capital letters D= Theta/F=7/G/I=9/L/O/S/T= plus/add or crucifix]. Certain health problems affecting the central nervous system (manifesting itself in an alarmingly premature tremor in the 1970s) seem to be under control in later samples.

The writer has been preoccupied with music and especially with varying ways if expressing musical ideas – he obviously enjoys spontaneous improvisation and elaborating on and sometimes spoofing (parodying) existing styles, while inventing new hybrids in the process, not unlike Mozart. [S as treble and I as bass clef, many embellishments, playful but confident flow, great speed even when making the most intricate trills and frills]

Attractive to both males and females, the subject tends to fall for dominant femme fatales [x reclining to the left] and enjoys a fairly flippant, romantic style of wooing or courtship [embellishment of capital letters]. Sensitive to adoring, cuddly females in his family (mother-sugar aunt figures) he longs for a firmer partner who may challenge him. Feels comfortable surrounded by male “buddies” from whom he expects undivided loyalty. No latent homosexual impulses detected. [Upward loop in medium g’s to the right like the letter “q” but final g’s feature loops on the regular left side).

Occasional bouts of depression and mood swings [wavy pattern and depressed m/n/w/e/a] may be lifted by acts of charity and human kindness that give the writer a sense of fulfillment and solidarity with his fellow human beings, which may well cure his gnawing feelings of alienation or estrangement in both the personal and public sphere. [G and D/L as relative symbols for OK-ing proposals and the Love or British pound sterling sign]

The subject is incredibly quick on the uptake and quite interested in intellectual and even esoteric matters [upward loops in d/h/l] but this interest invariably goes hand in hand with the emotional and spiritual impact a newly explored topic or field might make on him [downward loops]. His tendency to think ahead (strategically) and jump to conclusions [dots on i’’s to the right] makes his train of thought often hard to follow and his comments may be reduced to a confusing mumble or newly coined phrases [confused vowels a/e/i/o/u and consonants m/w]

His suppressed talent for acting and amusing gift for mimicry [less and less elaborate embellishment over the years] in addition to his perfect sense of timing and flexibility [embellishment and linking never interfering with neighbouring letters or words] will ensure that these superficial obstacles are eventually overcome.

Finally, the speed and flow of writing along with the ink pressure in all of the samples show no trace of tampering, tracing or any kind of forgery whatsoever – as a matter of fact, the combination between embellished capitals, upward and downward loops and the slightly cramped and confused medium letters could only be accomplished very slowly and artificially and that version would always look impossibly forced and unnatural.

I sincerely hope that my analysis will be appreciated and that it may somehow contribute to the credibility of the site designed, researched and presented so immaculately by Mrs Linda Hood Sigmon.

Yours respectfully,

Frank Landsman, MA

Below are the samples of Elvis’s known handwriting which I supplied to Frank:

This first sample is from a letter which Elvis wrote to Gary Pepper:
