Gilvania Ferreira of the "Viva Elvis Brasil Fan Club" contacted Elvis Presley's Graceland, and she received the following email response from Steven Gibbs:
"When it comes to the meditation garden there have been a few procedure changes. We will continue to allow fans and guests to leave items but they are removed daily and those appropriate, kept for the archives. Fresh flowers will be left until they need to be removed and silk flowers will remain for a few days before being removed. These procedures were put in place at the wishes of the Presley family in order to keep this area with a more manicured look. We appreciate you checking with us and thank you for your love and admiration of Elvis Presley."
Thank you very much Gilvania, for obtaining an answer from Graceland, and we appreciate your permission to share it with Elvis fans worldwide!
