“I’m going to read something that my granddaughter wrote for all of you,” Priscilla began at the Presley family’s estate, referring to Lisa Marie’s twin daughters, Harper and Finely, 14, whom she shared with ex-husband Michael Lockwood. “And this says it all.”

The Dallas alum continued: “I have no idea how to put my mother into words, truth is there are too many. Lisa Marie Presley was an icon, a role model, a superhero to many people all over the world, but Mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero in much more ways than one. Even now, I can’t get across everything there is to be understood or known about her but as she always said, ‘I’ll do my best.'”

I still can’t believe this, I’m lost for words. Love you sis. Beijos. 💔 .”
