We were saddened by news yesterday that Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the late Elvis Presley, suddenly passed away yesterday at age 54. The relatively young Presley was still recovering from the startling news of her son’s suicide. There is no doubt that Lisa Marie has had an uphill battle in more recent years.

As per Insider, Lisa Marie Presley’s final social-media post before her death was about the grief over the death of her son, Benjamin Keough.

The only child of Elvis and Priscilla Presley died this past Thursday at 54, her agent said in a statement to Insider. TMZ reported Presley went into cardiac arrest at her home in Calabasas, California.

In her final Instagram post, which was shared on August 31, Presley opened up about her “grief” over her son’s suicide.

“In honor of it being National Grief Awareness Day, I wrote an essay about Grief which was posted today on @people,” her post said. “I thought I’d post it here in the hopes that anyone who needs to hear all of this it helps in some way.”

In the accompanying essay for People — which was published the same month as the 45th anniversary of her father’s death — Presley said she had “been living in the horrific reality” of grief since her son’s death from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2020.

He was Presley’s youngest child with the musician Danny Keough and was 27 when he died.

“I’m sharing my thoughts in the hopes that somehow, we can change that,” she said, adding: “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. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period.”
