I will also always be grateful to him for all his help in allowing me to
obtain extremely rare, personal historical irreplaceable one of a kind
items. Jimmy received many items directly from Elvis during their twenty two year friendship.
During that four year period after Elvis' passing around late
1977-1982 before Graceland opened its doors to the public so many
historical, private and personal family items from Elvis' Graceland,
Hillcrest and Monovale homes belonging to Elvis over his lifetime were
sold to Jimmy from Elvis' close family and friends, by the time
Graceland realised what was happening it was just too late, so many
precious items were gone. Im just so grateful that i now own a large
amount of them.
Very many people in that early period just did not think that there
would be that much interest in Elvis after a year or two of his death,
How very, very wrong they were.
Many years ago in one of the many letters Jimmy wrote to me, Jimmy
wrote....."There's a time for every season and so i pass the baton
to you Daniel." ...............I felt extremely humbled by these
