Months after his death, Lisa Marie Presley’s son Benjamin Keough has been laid to rest.

According to Elvis Presley’s Graceland Facebook page, Keough was buried in the Meditation Garden at the estate in Memphis, alongside his grandfather, great-grandmother Gladys Presley, great-grandfather, Vernon Presley, and great-great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley.

In July, Keough died from an intraoral shotgun wound at 27. His death was ruled a suicide.

At the time, his mom’s manager, Roger Widynowski, told "Extra" his client was "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."

In the wake of his death, his sister Riley Keough shared photos of them together, writing on Instagram, “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."

Keough’s ex-girlfriend Alexa Rhode paid tribute to him on social media She wrote on Instagram, “Benjamin Storm, YOU. Always happy in the sun and water. And a laugh that made everyone happier. You gave love to anyone who needed it. You were wise like a thousand year old man, but silly as a 5 year old."

“You always said your favorite tarot card was the hermit, cause you could relate," Rhode continued. "You made the best jokes, and always broke the rules. You were my favorite person from the moment I met you. I wish we could've kept you forever Ben Ben."

Keough was a budding musician who in 2009 landed a big-bucks record deal and who did some acting, but he otherwise kept a very low profile for being a member of one of America's most famous families.
