Bush sends regards to Elvis fans on anniversary of death

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - President Bush and first lady Laura Bush sent their regards Tuesday to Elvis Presley fans honoring the 29th anniversary of the King's death in Memphis.

The White House sent a letter to be read to thousands of fans lined up outside the singer's Memphis mansion to visit his grave site.

The letter said the annual candlelight vigil is an opportunity for people from around the globe to come together, share their memories and celebrate one of America's most beloved icons.

The president and first lady, along with the Japanese prime minister who's an Elvis fan, visited Graceland June 30th.
