Today I attended 2 funerals...buried an uncle and a neighbor. Rather fitting on the 30th anniversary of Elvis' death...to think about death so much. I will write more about the day's events later. But for now I'll concentrate on Elvis. At this evening's funeral the first song sung by the organist/soloist was "How Great Thou Art". Funny...that. There I sat not thinking about Bill...but smiling about Elvis. I can't wait to ask Bill's brother if it was chosen for that reason.
We sing that hymn in our church, too. And every time we do, I think of Elvis...and then of the time I was the organist and when playing that song managed to add a run during the "roll of thunder" line....just as in Elvis' rendition. This woman smiled at me, wagged her finger at me, and said, "I heard that!"
Well, I still hear Elvis.
