Newspaper Headlines - Elvis Death August 16, 1977

Joe handedKendall an opened velvet box in which was a thick gold ring with a black onyx stone surrounded by diamonds and arranged to spell out the initials TCB the taking Car of Business slogan which Elvis had inspired several years earlier "I want you to put this on the third finger of his right hand," said Joe toKendall. Then without taking a breath added, “I want it left there until just before you close the lid. We don’t want it buried. And when you remove it I want you to return it to me as soon as you can… don’t give it to anyone else but me, understand?”

49 White Limousines for Elvis Funeral Procession

Because of the bizarre "break in" to steal Elvis body, Vernon Presley (Elvis' father) decided it would be safer to have Elvis buried at Graceland. After being granted special Memphis County Court Permission on Sunday, October 1977 just after 7pm Elvis’ coffin and that of his mother’s were exhumed from the Forest Hill cemetery and transport to Graceland where Kendall had arranged the burial. The work at the Gardens was done in the dead of night under a battery of bright lights which certainly presented an eerie scene for the handful of fans milling around outside the main gate. Only a handful of Elvis’ immediate family gathered for the formal and final interment.

Story Behind the National Enquirer Coffin Picture

Vernon remained seated at the gravesite and watched as the coffins of the two persons dearest to him in life disappeared from his view. As the vault lids were lowered in place and sealed Elvis’ father stood up and walked toward the mansion turning to Kendall he said in a hoarse voice. “Elvis and his Momma are finally home” November 11, 1977 the two massive slabs of granite & bronze that bore Vernon’s personal epitaph were lowered by crane & positioned onto the two graves. Vernon did not witness the installation, but visited the gravesite shortly after. Less than two years after his son died on June 22 1979, Vernon Presley passed away at the age of 65. He was buried in the grave next to his beloved son. To his left is the grave of Minnie Mae Presley, Elvis grandmother who died in 1980. To the right of Vernon is buried Elvis’ mother. There remain two more burial plots. No one will say who or if anyone will occupy them. However, Lisa Marie lyrics do indicate that she believes Graceland’s Meditation Garden will be her final resting place
