Elvis was a passionate man with many dreams and good intentions, especially concerning his health and his relationships, but he often failed to carry them through in real life.
Vernon’s description of Elvis’ response to his question about a marriage date was very telling: “‘Only God knows,’ Elvis said.
I got a feeling then that maybe he was changing his mind about marriage.”
But Vernon criticised commentators who said that the fact Elvis left Ginger and Priscilla nothing in his will was evidence of his lack of real feelings for them.
Vernon said: “In answer to that, I want to point out that Ginger had already gotten her share of gifts from Elvis.
“As for Priscilla, she didn’t expect to be mentioned, because Elvis had made his settlement with her when they were divorced.”
