Remembering the Day that Elvis Died

In August 1977 I was working at Pfizer in Groton, CT.  My New Jersey friend Jay drove to my house where we got into my car and went on vacation in Cape Cod.  We took a drive around the area that evening of August 16 when I heard on the radio that Elvis Presley had died.  When we got back to the motel room in Hyannis we watched the TV news.

In 2004 the family took a vacation in Memphis where we obviously toured Graceland.  We took a city tour which passed by the hospital where Elvis died.  There was a closed shade at the window of the room where he died.
