Elvis death: His heartbroken father did THIS for fifty thousand fans outside the funeral 1

Over 50,000 fans had gathered outside the house.

Originally, the funeral service was planned to be held at Memphis Funeral Home but Vernon insisted it was held at home and announced there would be a public viewing so as many fans as possible could pay their respects.

The open coffin was placed in the archway between the living room and the music room on the south end of the house, for the family and friends at home to say their private goodbyes.

At 3pm the first fans were admitted. Some estimates claim 30,000 filed past in shock and sorrow. Some fainted.

Vernon extended the viewing time to give as many as possible the chance to see his son one last time.
