“It was a very difficult time, but knowing that your love is out there makes all the difference.”

Her tweet came hours after her emotional speech at Lisa Marie’s memorial service at Graceland on Sunday.

Reading aloud in front of the mourners, Priscilla’s lyrics began: “In 1968 she entered our world / She was born tired, fragile, but strong / She was delicate but full of life.

“She always knew she wouldn’t be here for long / Childhood goes by with a look in her green eye / Then she made a family of her own.”

The poem later touched on the death of Lisa Marie’s son Benjamin by suicide in 2020, writing: “Then came her second child that leaves her with suspicion / Can this be the angel that takes me home?”
