The Heartbreaking Way Lisa Marie Presley Honored Her Late Son's Birthday

No mother should ever have to lose a child. Sadly, Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the late, great Elvis Presley, lost her 27-year-old son Benjamin Keough, whom she shares with her ex-husband Danny Keough, by suicide in July (via USA Today). The young man was laid to rest at Graceland in Nashville, Tennessee like his famous grandfather. In a statement at the time, Presley's manager said about his client, "She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."

Now, the grieving mother is commemorating what would have been Keough's 28th birthday, no doubt a deeply challenging milestone. Yahoo confirms that Presley took to Instagram for the first time since her son passed to honor the difficult occasion.

Lisa Marie Presley is still understandably grieving her son's immeasurable loss

In a deeply personal post, Presley shared a photo of her son from a past birthday, writing, "My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven." She adds in a heartbreaking statement, "My heart and soul went with you." The struggling star goes on to bravely share, "The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day. I will never be the same."

If you aren't tearing up already, prepare yourself for the way this sweet mama concludes her painfully sorrowful post: "Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand while I stay to continue to protect and raise your little sisters and to be here for Riley. I know you would want that. Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Boy. You were much too good for this world."

Presley's daughter, actress Riley Keough, also shared a tribute to her brother on Instagram, simply writing, "Happy Birthday beautiful angel," and sharing personal photos of her brother.
