Lisa Marie Presley posted a touching tribute to her late son, Benjamin Keough, this past Tuesday to mark the two-year anniversary of his death.
Presley, 54, shared a photo of her and her son’s feet to Instagram, sharing the meaning behind their matching tattoos.

“Several years ago, on Mother’s Day, my son and I got these matching tattoos on our feet,” she wrote. “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.”
She ended the post with a broken-heart emoji and a frown emoji. Lisa Marie also wrote an op-ed in honor of her son on People. She wrote, in part:
“I already battle with and beat myself up tirelessly and chronically, blaming myself every single day and that’s hard enough to now live with, but others will judge and blame you too, even secretly or behind your back which is even more cruel and painful on top of everything else.”
Presley’s eldest daughter, Riley Keough, also took to social media to remember her late brother. Keough, 33, shared a photo on Instagram of herself and her brother from her 2015 wedding to Ben Smith-Petersen.

“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,” she wrote, adding her own assortment of emojis.
Benjamin Keough, the grandson of the late singer Elvis Presley, died by suicide in 2020 at the age of 27.
And in October that year, on what would have been his 28th birthday, Presley penned a heartwrenching message to her son and posted it on Instagram alongside a photo of him wearing a birthday hat.

“My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven. My heart and soul went with you,” she wrote at the time. “The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day. I will never be the same.”
“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,” she added.
