Why would someone sacrifice a particular child and expose other children from the same family to terrible scrutiny by making up a story like "Are You Lonesome Tonight" ?



Lucy de Barbin's story covers decades - why would she want to make it into such a long time frame with a lot more chance of exposure if it were a hoax.



Lucy has covered details in her book about events that had not been written up in other Elvis books until a lot later, small insignificant events that sometimes surfaced years later as being historically or geographically correct.



How could Lucy have known all these things, unless she lived them .....



Priscilla appears to be a lot more fancifull in her book "Elvis And Me", especially about Elvis's apparent willingnes to marry her.



If we're going to get doubtful about the truth, Priscilla has a lot more to answer for than Lucy de Barbin and Desiree....

Elvis was buried with a bracelet. Lisa Marie asked the funeral director to place it on Elvis' wrist as she was afraid to. Pricilla asked the director to cover up the bracelet with Elvis' sleeve, so as to hide it from anybody who might want to steal it. Not sure which bracelet it was.

honestly, ms lucy de barbins life was more hardship and torture than anything else

why should she open up to the public about her ill fortune if it was not to show the fans and all other people actually what a wonderful person elvis was?

would you reveal yourself in such a fashion before te whole wide world if everything was only made up?

has ms de barbin described elvis differently than all the other people who have known and spoken about him?

why should elvis not have sought a normal relationship after all this craziness he had to endure?

how can anybody be so arrogant as to judge what is true and what fiction?

why do we have to question this anyway?

ms de barbin shows us that elvis was sometimes happy even at the end of his life and that she was responsible.

i am grateful to ms de barbin that she at least was willing to help him and stand by him when the others around him were busy to know who was his best friend!!!

ms de barbin,thx for being there for elvis!!!

I have read Are You Lonesome Tonight twice and l believe the story. In the book Elvis by the Presleys, Priscilla  said that Elvis went missing for a couple of days  after a fight with his dad over the colonial. He ended up in Washington. Lucy wrote about this in her book years before.

I have read the book, and totally, wholeheartedly believe Lucy De Barbin is telling the truth.  I can't begin to fathom how anyone could think otherwise.



I would love to know more about her and her daughter and how they are getting on in life.  



After all (if the tests were done) that would be, the king himself's, Elvis Presley' daughter. Flesh, blood, and DNA, no matter how you would choose to look at it.



I only wish he had more children, illegitimate or not.



PS:  Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts and feelings on the book.

I'm sorry, but I can't answer questions on the value of Elvis memorabilia...I have a vast collection of things...and they are all priceless to me...so I never look for the value of an item. I cannot validify or counter the authenticity of any Elvis item or memorabilia....But I will glad to answer any question about Elvis and his life. I have "studied" Elvis since I was about 8 yrs. old. I am now 44. Have been to Graceland several times and try to go every year for the anniversary. In my spare time, I am all over the internet looking for anything to do with Elvis. My family calls me an "Elvis freak" instead of a fan...I`m very proud of that title...ha. I am not really into dates of song releases and such as that, but if you need to know anything about Elvis`s life, right down to what his mother called milk, I can answer just about anything. However, I cannot answer questions as to the value of items you may have. I loved Elvis very much and care deeply for his memory and will always be respectful of that as I would hope everyone will.

Experience

I am also an Elvis expert on askme.com....I have loved Elvis for about 35 years now, although he died when I was only 12, I am now 44 and I have learned just nearly everything you can possibly think of about the man that is in print or on film.

Organizations
I am an Elvis Fan Club president and member of many online Elvis fan clubs.
