Rest In Peace, Gladys Love Smith Presley ★ April 25, 1912 - August 14, 1958.
Much has been made of Elvis’s relationship with his mother, but what I saw was that they were so similar in nature that in addition to sharing the love of a mother and son, they also had a dearly cherished friendship. She cared for him so much, and, truly, she was the anchor in his crazy life. He always counted on her for her support, her encouragement, her keen judge of character, and her unconditional love. – George Klein.
