Lisa Marie Presley’s last social media post detailed the heartache she has lived with following the death of her son.
On Thursday, the only daughter of Elvis Presley died at the age of 54 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
In her final Instagram post, Presley shared about losing her late son Benjamin Keough to suicide back in July 2020.
“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 posted in August, sharing about an essay she wrote for People. “If not to help yourself but maybe to help another who is grieving.”
In her essay, Presley acknowledged 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. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period,” Presley wrote.
