A BEAUTIFUL BOOK IN EVERY WAY AND THANKS TO WANDA AND ALL HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS

IT! HAPPINESS, LAUGHTER AT MANY OF ELVIS' ANTICS, JOKES AND TEASING BUT ALSO SO
MUCH THAT IS THOUGHT-PROVOKING, FROM THE HEART AND SOUL AND THAT LAST MEETING
BETWEEN WANDA AND ELVIS TOO, GLAD SHE PRE-WARNED US ABOUT NEEDING SOME TISSUES,
SURE DID! WILL LOOK FORWARD TO FACE TO FACE IN 2007!
I'm in the middle of reading it too and am loving it. I've already laughed and
cried with such a range of emotions. I noticed Wanda you spent time revealing
Elvis' knowledge of the Bible; quite detailed. That alone makes your book quite
unique. Of course, there's still much more to read. I hope I haven't given away
too much here. Don't want to spoil it for those who have not read it yet.
This book is written in a readable and one can easily see that the author wrote
with the love and the respect that she experienced during her friendship with
Elvis. I wish all of those who call themselves true Elvis fans and who want to
find their path with peace, will read this book. I am enjoying it very much!
This book was written by Wanda June Hill, someone who knew & loved Elvis as a
close friend, and not as Elvis the star. In this book the author reveals the
true character of Elvis, much of it through interviews she taped, with his
consent. The interviews were done primarily in 1976 via phone & one face to
face. Here we see that Elvis is humorous, appreciative of his fans, thoughtful,
sometimes having an occasional "attitude", alert, aware, intelligent, and having
good memory, completely dispelling the drug abuse myths. This book is well
written, entertaining & insightful. It also includes the author's own story in
meeting and getting to know Elvis, as well as comments from others who had the
chance & privilege to get to know the man behind the image. I have gotten to
know Mrs. Hill quite well and find her to be genuine & caring. Not for a moment
do I think this book was done for money. She wrote this book as an honor to her
dear friend Elvis & his memory. Highly recommended!

Don't lose the best book written about Elvis I have ever seen until now: the
revised and widen re-edition of "WE REMEMBER, ELVIS", written by Wanda June
Hill, who was his trusty friend and was part too of the famous phone friends'
circle Elvis had through many years, until the end of his life here.
I have just finished reading it and the sensation I got is that of having Elvis
to my hand's reach, laughing with his laugh, crying his tears, feeling with his
heart. Elvis becomes a breathable atmosphere, so close that it is no necessary
any effort to reach him.
Most of the book he talks with his own words (taped and transcript with his
authorization) and with his facts, without interpretations. There appear some
heartfelt testimonies, written in first person by some of his friends that were
part of that circle.
This book transpires to be written from the Love for the good friend, without
All of you able to read English, don't let it pass by. Those unable to, will
have to wait a little time until it is traduced, which certainly will be. I have
addressed myself to the author asking for it. She has told me that it is her
intention. She wishes so much to make the real Elvis Presley known, that she is
actually thinking about using the book's benefits to translate it to different
languages and also, to get it to those without meanings for buying it, like
hospitals libraries, humble districts' and other institutions of the kind.
This is a book with heart, ELVIS' HEART.
