Riley Keough Shares Sweet Photos of Her Late Brother Benjamin
In the wake of her brother Benjamin Keough's suicide on July 12, his sister Riley Keough is sharing a series of touching images as part of a tribute to the fallen grandson of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
On Instagram Saturday, Riley — who like Benjamin is the child of Lisa Marie Presley and ex-husband Danny Keough — shared a series of eight images of herself with Benjamin, writing, "Mornings are the hardest. I forget you're gone. I can't cry because of the fear that I will never stop. A pain that's new to me."
She went on, "You. There are no words for you. Angel is the closest I could think of. Pure light. Baby brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness to my life. Twin soul. Protector. Too sensitive for this harsh world. I hope you give me strength to endure the giant hole you've left in my heart. I hope you give me the strength to eat. I hope you're cradled in love. I hope you feel my love. I hope you feel god. You are god. I can't believe you've left me. Not you sweet Ben Ben. Anyone but you."
Riley ended her emotional post with, "I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again."

Along with Benjamin, Riley has 11-year-old twin sisters, Harper and Finley, who are the children of Lisa Marie and her ex, Michael Lockwood.
At the time of Keough's suicide, Lisa Marie's manager, Roger Widynowski, told "Extra" his client "is entirely 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."
According to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner's office, Keough died from an intraoral shotgun wound at age 27. His death has been ruled a suicide.
