I wrote to Wanda June Hill asking for permission to post something from her material. She sent me the following statement of permission for me to use anything which she has written or spoken regarding her close friendship with Elvis prior to August 16, 1977. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for all the time and hard work which she has put into telling the truth about Elvis (who IS now Jesse). Her books, without doubt, have been the most meaningful books about Elvis which I have ever read. I so very highly recommend them to everyone.
Below is the link to Amazon.com from which you may purchase her first book “WE REMEMBER, ELVIS“
We Remember, Elvis: REVISED 2006 edition Paperback
by Wanda June Hill (Author)
This book has been re-released and revised with additional sections added,because after 25 years, Elvis’ dignity has been torn up time after time, by people who didn’t know him, judged him and what he stood for by their own imperfections, desires and delusions for what ever gain they received. He has been one of the most misunderstood and vilified entertainers of his time and for the most part after his death. In this book, We Remember, Elvis many people who did know him, who had personal contact with the man, more than the entertainer have come together to tell their stories and in doing so, let Elvis reveal himself in ways he never was allowed to do while living.
Also, I am sharing the web site from which you may download for FREE her second book:
Elvis – Face to Face
With love by Wanda June Hill
and a Few Friends

I extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Mrs. Hill who has been one of my heroes since 1990 when I first learned of, and bought, her wonderful books.
The following is meant as a joke (mostly). I couldn’t resist sharing this very funny and cute photo of a little “fur person” saying a humorous prayer.

Below is a YouTube video of an impersonator trying to sound like Jesse on one of the songs from the new CD. A friend, Alexander, shared this with me on Facebook. He commented that he has seen ETAs but never a JTA (Jesse tribute artist). So, this is a first for me too.
If my memory serves me correctly the imitator on this version of Jesse’s song The Dance is a person who the rumor mongers tried to convince people of as being the real singer on Jesse’s CD. That was done because they just cannot accept the truth.
No disrespect intended to this JTA whose stage name is Ron Jesse, but he is a very poor imitation of Jesse.
My thanks to Alexander for sharing this.
Alexander shared a link: “He’s trying to sound like Jesse; I have seen many ETA but Never any JTA !“
I am very glad that this young man did record one of Jesse’s songs so that everyone may hear for themselves that the 15 songs on the CD most certainly are not by Ron Jesse. No offense to anyone, but this imitation can’t hold a candle to Jesse’s version.

Just want to let everyone know that Jesse did phone me this afternoon. He is well and we had a very enjoyable visit. I thought of something today that I have always felt but it had never occurred to me to tell him. I told him that I have been so proud of him since I was 9 years old in 1956, but that of all the things he did and accomplished, that I am most proud of him for leaving that all behind and becoming Jesse. He thanked me for saying that and said that he didn’t think that anyone has ever said that to hm before.
In one of our recent conversations, I told him what a wonderful clue he gave us when he wrote his “goodbye letter” to Wanda June Hill early in August, 1977 but held the letter and mailed it when it should have gotten to her on August 16th. It actually did arrive on August 15th though. He sounded so pleased that I had noticed that and he said he didn’t think that anyone noticed that.
It certainly was the highlight of my day to get to speak with him. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to be his trusted friend and to get to hear from him and to know how he is. God has certainly smiled upon me in this lifetime and I am so thankful.

As I have mentioned often throughout my web site, Elvis was telling people how tired he was of being Elvis Presley leading up to August 16, 1977. Below is a copy from the book ELVIS IN PRIVATE by Peter Haining published in 1987. As you will see it is from an interview with Gordon Stoker of the Jordanaires. In this interview, Gordon tells of the comment which Elvis made to Felton Jarvis during his very last recording session. This is only one of many such comments which Elvis made to friends and associates.
Mr. Stoker, in an interview which I once saw, said something else in regard to the questions about Elvis’ “death“. He was shrugging off all of the talk about him still being alive and he said that he got a phone call from someone saying they were Elvis’ and he just hung up. I have never asked Jesse if he once called Mr. Stoker after 1977. But, Jesse did say that he had called people who just hung up on him.
I was told last week that the first petition to get my web site shut down has finally gotten the 200 requested signatures in order for it to be sent to EPE and Priscilla Presley…has exceeded the 200 required.
Last night I received a notice in my news alerts that another petition has been started which closely resembles the first one claiming that I am deceiving Elvis fans and must be stopped.
My best wishes to the two administrators of the two petitions. My web site will not be taken down. I say this with the fullest confidence…the truth shall stand. My web site would not be in existence were it not in keeping with Elvis’ wishes.
I received an Email notification from Pinterest that someone had posted the beautiful photo below. Isn’t this just so gorgeous!!
SENT TO JESSE THROUGH THIS POINT ON FRIDAY, JUNE 6, 2014

June 7th, 1972 – Elvis Presley makes history by performing four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden. George Harrison, John Lennon, David Bowie, Bob Dylan were among music stars to attended the shows. The shows were recorded and would become the album, Elvis as Recorded at Madison Square Garden.

Also, more recently a DVD of some of these performances was released as “PRINCE FROM ANOTHER PLANET“.
I just saw that Amazon.com actually has an Elvis Presley Store…how ’bout that! Below is the brief description and the link to it.
for 1027 albums, 9 photos, 3 videos, discussions, and more.
Below is a new photo reportedly taken when Elvis arrived back at Graceland on August 16th, 1977 from his visit to the dentist. I stumbled upon this photo and so I don’t know if it is authentic as to the time and place…but it appears to be. Below is the link to the site on which I found it and it shows that it was originally posted to Twitter.
If, and when, Ginger Alden’s book comes out, it will open a can of worms because she was not viewed favorably by just about anyone around Elvis. There is proof in the form of Dr. Nick’s book and the book my Nancy Rooks which tells of her true relationship with Elvis. He was NOT going to marry her. I will NOT be purchasing her book. However, if I get wind that she has told any lies about Elvis, I will be displaying the truth about what she did when she found “the body” on August 16th. For those who do not already know, she showed no signs of love for Elvis at all when she discovered “the body”. Also, Wanda June Hill has the truth about what Elvis spoke about Ginger in her material. Elvis meant her no harm but she was used in the plan unbeknownst to her. Jesse wrote that he chose the “most naive” person he knew to find the body. Elvis said that he would have no physical relations with her “because she’ll get married someday“.
I believe that the reason that Linda Thompson was eased out of Elvis’ life in 1976 was because he knew that he could not pull off the faked death with Linda living with him. She watched over him constantly and she would have caught on to the scheme. Furthermore, she would have certainly reacted differently had she been the one to find Elvis unconscious on the bathroom floor. There was one HUGE difference between Linda Thompson and Ginger Alden…Linda LOVED Elvis with all her heart. Not so with Ginger.

My good friend, Lucilia, shared this beautiful photo with me on Facebook. This is so lovely and a rare photo that I have not seen before. My thanks to Lucilia.
I URGE EVERYONE TO PLEASE BOYCOTT THIS DVD FROM THE TRAITOR, DAVE HEBLER.
For anyone who is not aware, Dave Hebler is one of the three former employees/friends (?) of Elvis’ who wrote the book Elvis What Happened?. Below you will see how Elvis felt about their book in his own handwriting. I cannot think of words to express my personal disdain of those three. I will NEVER spend one cent on anything else any of them write. I did, naively, buy their first book when it came out and it made me so physically ill that I had to see my doctor. There is no Hell hot enough for them, in my personal opinion. They caused Elvis a lot of pain and they caused those who love Elvis a lot of pain.
Jesse has told me that he forgives them…he is a much better person than I.
Here is the letter which Jesse wrote to me in which he mentions their book:
Prince From Another Planet for certain.!!!!!

Below is an article which caught my eye because of the dateline on it…New Delhi, India! Below is a brief excerpt from the article. The article is lengthy but goes into details about the food and drinks which are not as important as the location of this particular Elvis festival at a restaurant.
I have occasionally seen visitors from India to my site.
New Delhi: “Lonesome tonight” or not, if you are in for “a little less conversation” and appetising American cuisine, head to the capital-based multi-cuisine restaurant, Life Caffe of Hotel Corus, that will take you back in time to when Elvis Presley, the undisputed king of rock and roll, ruled supreme.Titled Presley on Platter, the fest will be on all this month and it will take you back to the 1960s and 1970s when the legendary American singer ruled the music charts and hearts of many youngsters. With food categories on the menu inspired by his hit numbers like “Jailhouse rock”, “I’m all shook up” and “Love me tender”, the food, his posters and songs played at the restaurant will make you feel connected to Presley in some way or the other.
Think on This…
I just discovered that at least one of my YouTube Channel’s videos is now appearing on another Video site to which I did not post it myself. This is wonderful for me. I appreciate the new exposure.
