What a great loss! She will be missed. I am sure as we speak, Elvis is greeting her at those pearly gates. God bless, Julie.

We had the distinct pleasure of having Julie Parrish as our guest speaker at our ELVIS WORLD Lunch at Marlowe's in August 2002. During that Elvis Week, and since, both in person and via e-mails and phone conversations, I got to know Julie very well. She was a most wonderful person who made herself accessible to the Elvis fans wherever she went. Never any of that "I am a Hollywood STAR bull shit." She was readily available to take a picture with you, to autograph anything you put in front of her, or just to sit and talk and, unlike so many other "Elvis" people, she did not demand payment for all of these niceties. Like myself, she was a cancer survivor and valued every moment of Life itself. The Elvis world -- no, the world! -- will miss this wonderful human being. BILL E. BURK, Publisher, ELVIS WORLD, Memphis

This is very sad news. Julie Parrish was besides a very regular guest at Elvis Parties organised by Graceland, also a very big Elvis fan herself. I vividly remember a nice chat I had with her last year. She was selling 'her book' ("Swingin Chicks Of The Sixties") at an Elvis Disco in Tunica. She was a warm and 'real' person, and I could not help taking a liking in her. May God bless her.
