The world is still reeling from the startling news of the sudden death of Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the late Elvis Presley. Lisa Marie had been battling a serious bout of depression since the tragic suicide of her son in 2020. More recently, words uttered by the late Lisa Marie at her son’s gravesite have surfaced.
Days before her passing, the singer visited her late son Benjamin’s grave on the Graceland estate and expressed her wish to be buried next to him, People reported.
The “Lights Out” singer visited the Memphis residence’s Meditation Garden — where both her father and her son are buried — on Jan. 8 with her friend, David Kessler.
“We sat there mostly in silence by Ben’s grave,” Kessler told People of the day. “She showed me where she’d be buried someday, right across from her father’s grave.”
“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 added.
A public memorial for Presley will be held on January 22 on the front lawn of Graceland. The family noted in a statement that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation.
The famous property will now be passed down to Presley’s daughters Riley Keough, 33, and twins Harper and Finley Lockwood, 14.
