Priscilla Presley calls Lisa Marie’s death ‘very difficult’

Priscilla Presley thanked fans and followers for their support throughout what has been a “very difficult time” in light of her daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s death.

“Thank you all for your condolences, you have touched me with your words,” Priscilla tweeted late Monday.

“It has been a very difficult time but just knowing your love is out there makes a difference.”

Lisa Marie was laid to rest at Graceland Sunday next to her late son, Benjamin Keough, following a star-studded memorial service, during which Alanis Morissette performed and Sarah Ferguson gave a touching eulogy.

The late singer-songwriter’s daughter Riley Keough also had her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, read a letter to her late mother on her behalf.

“I remember you giving me baths as a baby, driving me in my car seat listening to Aretha Franklin… taking me for ice cream after school in Florida,” she wrote.

“I remember you singing lullabies to me and my brother at night, and how you’d lay with us until we fell asleep,” she continued, referencing Benjamin.

“I remember how it felt to be loved by the most loving mother I’ve ever known. How safe it felt to be in your arms: I remember that feeling as a child, and I remember it two weeks ago on your couch.”

Lisa Marie, who was the only child of Priscilla and the late Elvis Presley, died on Jan. 12 after going into cardiac arrest. She was 54. Her official cause of death has yet to be released.

“She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
