Lisa Marie Presley has four children: Riley, Benjamin, and twins Harper and Finley. Sadly, Benjamin passed away on July 12, 2020 at the age of 27.

A few months later, Lisa Marie paid tribute to her son in a post on social media. She said:

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. 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.”

Then this year, as the Elvis movie was preparing to enter theaters, Lisa Marie said she wished Benjamin was here to see it:

It breaks my heart that my son isn’t here to see [the movie]. He would have absolutely loved it as well.”

This October 21 would have been Benjamin’s 30th birthday. His big sister Riley honored him with a sweet tribute on Instagram.

Riley shared a childhood photo of her and Benjamin together. The two of them were wearing matching blue and white striped outfits.

You would be 30 today. Happy Birthday my best friend, my angel. This world is strange without you,” Riley captioned the photo, which you can see below.
