This news makes me very sad. Mr.Linde's songs were some of the most excellent of Elvis 70's records. He was a great songwriter. My he rest in peace. My condolances to his family and friends.

"For the heart" happens to be in my top 5 of my Elvis`s favorite songs. Not to mention that "Goodbye Earl" performed by the Dixie Chicks in 1999 is a great song of his too. I think he had a daughter who was in show-business also, playing a role in a soap opera if I`m not mistakin`...anoyone heard about it ?
