Riley Keough Posts The Last Photograph Of Her Mother Lisa Marie Presley Before Her Passing
Despite the fact that the world has seemingly moved on from Lisa Marie Presley’s untimely death, it is understandable that her loved ones are still grieving.
On January 12, Elvis Presley’s only kid died in the hospital after being rushed there in cardiac arrest.
The housekeeper reportedly found Lisa Marie unconscious in the bathroom. Her ex-husband Danny Keough performed CPR while waiting for the paramedics to arrive.
Lisa Marie’s mother, Priscilla Presley, released a statement confirming her passing:
“I must break the heartbreaking news that my lovely daughter Lisa Marie has passed away with you. She was the most fervent, courageous, and loving lady I’ve ever met.
“It was so incredible and so accurate and just so authentic that, yeah, I can’t even describe what it meant,” the author said. “I had to take, like, five days to process it.”
“I’m grateful that you are my mother in this life. I will always be grateful that we were together for 33 years. As far back as I can remember, I was aware that I had made the best mother choice for me in the entire world, Riley wrote. “I can recall everything. You gave me baths when I was a baby, I recall. I can still picture you driving me while Aretha Franklin was playing in the background. I still recall your smell and the way you would hold me when I would come to your bed at night.
Riley Keough’s husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, revealed they welcomed a baby girl while he gave a speech on behalf of Riley during a memorial service for Lisa Marie Presley!— Riley Keough Photos (@keoughphotos) January 22, 2023

“In Florida, I recall you bringing me out for ice cream after school. I recall you singing lullabies to my brother and I at night and lying next to us until we passed out.
“I recall how you used to get me a new Cracker Barrel tea set whenever you left town.”
“I still have every note you ever put in my lunchbox. I can still feel your hand on my forehead and the emotion I would get when I saw you pick me up from school. I can still feel the love of the most devoted mother I’ve ever known. I still recall how secure I felt in your embrace. Both when I was a child and two weeks ago on your couch, I recall having that experience.
“I appreciate you proving to me that the only thing that matters in this life is love. The way you loved me, my brother, and my sisters is how I intend to love my daughter.
Everyone in the comments agreed that she is beyond beautiful! One user said: “such a beautiful photo, we’re all thinking of you and your family” while another stated: “Beautiful photo my darling Riley, sending you so much love…” Third said “You both look so very beautiful… With a peaceful serenity in your expressions.”
Her death has definitely prompted a worldwide outpouring of grief, but fans may find solace in the knowing that Lisa Marie is finally reunited with her beloved baby Benjamin.
Lisa Marie’s life was irrevocably changed after Elvis’ grandson Benjamin committed suicide in 2020 at the age of 27.
Page Six reports that Lisa Marie was buried with her son at Graceland over the weekend. This pair is now thought to be meditating together in Elvis’s legendary home’s Meditation Garden.
