Elvis Presley’s only daughter Lisa Marie Presley passed away at the age of 54 after suffering full cardiac arrest. The tragic incident occurred at her Calabasas, California home. Tragically, her father also died of a heart attack in 1977 at the age of 42. Lisa’s last post on Instagram was about his late son Benjamin who passed away at the age of 20 due to suicide. She stated in her essay that the death of her son left her “destroyed.” Moreover, it was something that she would always have to live with. Her last post was five months ago.
Lisa Marie Presley posted the essay on National Grief Awareness Day. She writes, “I have been living in the horrific reality of its unrelenting grips since my son’s death two years ago.” She continues, “I thought I would share a few things to be aware of in regard to grief for anyone who is interested.” She goes on “If you’re incredibly lucky, less than a handful will remain in contact with you after the first month or so. Unfortunately, that is a cold hard truth for most. So, if you know someone who lost a loved one, regardless of how long it’s been, please call them to see how they are doing.”
