Priscilla presley talks about the loss of her grandson, Benjamin keough, to suicide earlier this month, and she says the tragedy has left the family shattered.
ElvisThe widow broke her silence on Wednesday saying, “These are some of the darkest days in my family’s life. The shock of losing Ben has been devastating.”
Priscilla continued in a Facebook post … “Trying to put all the pieces of all the possible whys together has entered my soul. Every day I wake up, I pray that it will get better. Then I think about my daughter. [Lisa Marie Presley] and the pain she suffered as a beloved mother. Ben’s father, Danny [Keough], who is completely lost, as Ben was her only child. “
Other than a declaration by Lisa MarieBen’s attorney, shortly after news of Ben’s death was heard, neither of his parents spoke publicly about his death. Obviously, as Priscilla explains, they’re broken because of this … the whole brood is – uncles, nieces, nephews and everything.
Priscilla ended her thoughts with Ben’s only pureblood brother, Riley keough. She said, “Riley, so loving and so close to him; Harper and Finley, who absolutely adored Ben. Navarone, who struggles deeply with loss and death. Rest in peace Ben, you were loved. ❤️”
Riley reflected on the death of his brother during the weekend in a sincere tribute. His was just as hard to read as Priscilla’s. Reflections and prayers to all at this difficult time.
