In her COA Linda Thompson recalls "Elvis and I spoke to each other almost exclusively in baby talk. Elvis rarely called me by my given name, but much preferred to refer to me in funny, loving terms. I was very thin, so one of his favorite names to call me was "Fatty"! He also called me mommy, Ariadne, and many other terms of endearment. I called him Buntyn, Gullion, Butch, and other silly names. This rare inscription from Elvis to me on my birthday, demonstrates his adorable loving nature and wonderful sense of humor."
