Reba Roberts' dying wish was to be reunited with her sister, whom she hadn't seen in four years. HLN says this life-long Elvis fan's wish was granted with the help of a big celebrity.
Yes, the ex-wife of the King, Priscilla Presley, came by to visit Roberts in her hospice facility. They even took a little time to sing one of Elvis's classics: "Blue Suede Shoes."
It's not clear why Roberts and her sister were apart for so long, but Roberts couldn't wait to tell Presley all about their reunion.
Reba: 'We just hugged and hugged and hugged.'
Presley: 'Really when you stop and think about it, you offer comfort, a closure.'
Presley is an ambassador for the Dream Foundation, which grants wishes to adults dying of terminal illnesses.
She told "Entertainment Tonight" that she first heard of the foundation back in 1997 when she received a request for a dream recipient to visit Graceland. 'When I found out, I thought this is great.'
After that, she became an ambassador for the organization.
Thedream recipients don't always ask for big vacations or meet-and-greets with celebrities. In fact, the foundation often grants wishes such as paying utility bills or providing wheelchairs or scooters. Presley told CNN, 'No matter the scale of the dream -- whether it's a peaceful escape to the beach, a long-delayed family reunion or an appliance that works -- every one is touching and heartwarming because it unites people.'
Roberts died peacefully February 23rd. Forever an Elvis fan, her obituary included this quote: "Not in my wildest dreams did I think I would meet Priscilla Presley."
