Lisa Marie Presley continues to mourn the loss of her son Benjamin Keough, posting a moving tribute to him in honor of the second anniversary of his death.
On Tuesday, Presley shared a warm memory of Benjamin, posting a photo of their matching foot tattoos on her Instagram account. “Several years ago, on Mother’s Day, my son and I got these matching tattoos on our feet,” she wrote in the caption. “It’s a Celtic eternity knot. Symbolizing that we will be connected eternally. We carefully picked it to represent our eternal love and our eternal bond.” Benjamin died at his home in Calabasas, California from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in July 2020 at the age of 27, per TMZ.
Benjamin’s sister Riley Keough also marked the two-year anniversary by sharing a photo of the two of them together. She wrote in the caption, “Not an hour goes by where I don’t think of you and miss you. It’s been two years today since you left and I still can’t believe you’re not here. You are so loved my Ben Ben.” Three months after Benjamin’s passing, he was laid to rest at Graceland alongside his grandfather, Elvis Presley, and several other family members.
Back in May, Presley also opened up about the tough couple of years she and her family have been through and the toll Benjamin’s death has taken on them. She explained on Instagram, “I haven’t posted in quite some time because there really isn’t much to say, as I am and will forever be mourning the loss of my son. Navigating through this hideous grief that absolutely destroyed and shattered my heart and my soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole. Not much else aside from my other 3 children gets my time and attention anymore.”
But Presley added that getting to watch Baz Luhrmann‘s new film about her father, Elvis, with her three children did bring some joy in to her life. She said that this movie “is finally something that myself and my children and their children can be proud of forever. What moved me to tears as well was watching [her children] Riley and Harper, and Finley afterwards, all 3 visibly overwhelmed in the best way possible way, and so filled with pride about their grandfather and his legacy in a way that I have not previously experienced.” Presley concluded, “It breaks my heart that my son isn’t here to see it. He would have absolutely loved it as well. I can’t tell you enough how much I love this film and I hope you love it too.”
