Tragic reports of the lingering moments of Lisa Marie Presley are slowly being revealed.
On January 12, the sudden passing of Elvis Presley’s daughter due to cardiac arrest tragically echoed her father’s own untimely death back in 1977.
Just days before her untimely death, the singer made a pilgrimage to her son Benjamin’s grave on the Graceland estate and expressed her desire to be laid next to him in rest, according to People.
On the 8th of January, “Lights Out” hitmaker visited Elvis Presley’s Meditation Garden — where her father and son are both laid to rest. She paid this tribute accompanied by good friend David Kessler.
“We sat there mostly in silence by Ben’s grave,” Kessler said. “She showed me where she’d be buried someday, right across from her father’s grave.”
“I said, ‘Not for a long time,’ ” Kessler said, adding that Lisa, “was like, ‘Nope, I got a lot to do still.’ ”
“She was very excited about what was coming up. She had such a challenging first and second act of life, and she was about to take on this third act that was so much about helping people,” he continued.
Tragically, Ben succumbed to suicide in 2020 after facing a protracted battle with substance abuse.
On January 22nd, a public memorial service will be held on Graceland’s front lawn in honor of Presley. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations go to the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation.
Elvis Presley’s remarkable estate will now be inherited by his daughters, Riley Keough (33) and the twins – Harper and Finley Lockwood (14).
On the night of her final public appearance, Priscilla Presley flanked by “Elvis” star Austin Butler and director Baz Luhrmann walked with her daughter Presley down the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. Just two days later, she passed away.
Despite her best efforts, the mother of four was weak during the ceremony and appeared to be struggling with her balance.
In her ultimate Instagram post before she passed away, the songwriter sent an ominous reflection on life following Ben’s death.
“Today is National Grief Awareness Day, and since I have been living in the horrific reality of its unrelenting grips since my son’s death two years ago, I thought I would share a few things to be aware of in regard to grief for anyone who is interested,” she wrote. “If not to help yourself but maybe to help another who is grieving.”
Presley further noted that “grief does not stop or go away in any sense.”
“Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe,” she added. “You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period.”
