Elvis' mother died in 1958, at the time when Elvis was at the start of his career. When Elvis got the news of her death, he rushed to the hospital where she had been on observation for hepatitis. No one! No relatives, friends or Elvis' father - could come through the condition of a total riot of minds that Elvis had at this time.

At the burial Elvis let go of a tidalwave of sorrow. Funeral guests had never experienced this kind of physical grief at a burial. With the death of his mother, Elvis went into a state of profound shock from which he would never fully emerge. To say Elvis was devastated, is the understatement of this century!!
