The post comes after news that Lisa Marie was laid to rest on January 19 in the Meditation Garden at Graceland.
Presley was buried next to her son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020, and across from her famous father Elvis.
This week, Lisa Marie’s close friend David Kessler, a grief expert, revealed to People that he had just visited Graceland with her on January 8, days before her death.
Kessler said they visited Elvis and Ben’s gravesites in the meditation garden. “We sat there mostly in silence by Ben's grave. She showed me where she'd be buried someday, right across from her father's grave. I said, 'Not for a long time,' and she was like, 'Nope, I got a lot to do still.' She was very excited about what was coming up. She had such a challenging first and second act of life, and she was about to take on this third act that was so much about helping people."
