Today, Riley Keough shared her final memory with her mother, Lisa Marie Presley.
The Mad Max: Fury Road actress returned home yesterday (Jan. 23) from Presley’s burial and public memorial at Elvis’ Graceland mansion and is reflecting on her time with her mother. This afternoon, she posted a photograph of herself alongside the late songstress in a lavish restaurant.
As Keough shared, the photo comes from the last day she spent time with her mother before Presley passed away on January 12.
“Feel blessed to have a photo of the last time I saw my beautiful mama. Grateful @georgieflores took this,” she wrote.
In the snapshot, the two are dressed for a special occasion and they hold hands and smile for the camera.
“Oh Riley, she was so beautiful, sending so much love and prayers,” a friend captioned under the post.
“I’m so sorry for your loss,” added a fan. “Losing a parent is the hardest thing sending you all the love in the world xxxx.”
Lisa Marie Presley died after suffering two cardiac arrests. The first happened while she was in her bedroom in her Calabasas, California, home. A housekeeper found her unconscious, and Danny Keough, Riley’s father and Presley’s ex-husband, kept her alive with CPR.
When Presley arrived at the hospital, doctors determined she was brain dead. Her family signed a DNR, and she passed after suffering a second cardiac arrest. She was 54 years old.
“She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known,” she continued. “We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”
Thousands of Mourning Fans Attend Lisa Marie Presley’s Graceland Memorial
Lisa Marie Presley’s memorial took place on Sunday, January 22, on the front lawn of Graceland. By 5 am, thousands of people had already gathered for the event, according to the DailyMail. The service included a performance by Axl Rose and eulogies by Presley’s friends and family.
One of those eulogies came from Riley Keough, and it was read by her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen. In it, Keough first shared the news that she had secretly given birth to a baby girl.
“Thank you for showing me that love is the only thing that matters in this life,” he said. “I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and my sisters. Thank you for giving me strength. My heart, my empathy, my courage, my sense of humor, my manners, my temper, my wildness, my tenacity. I’m a product of your heart.”
Us Weekly later confirmed with a rep that Keough and Smith-Peterson had already welcomed the child. The rep did not share any further details.
