Riley Keough has spoken out after the death of her brother Benjamin Keough last weekend on Instagram. The two shared their mother Lisa Marie Presley and are two of the grandchildren to Elvis Presley.

Benjamin died on July 12 and his death was ruled a suicide by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner. 

Riley included may photos of her and her brother in her post and attached a lengthy caption. She wrote, “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. 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.”

She added, “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. I guess this is true heartbreak. I hope we meet again.”

At the time of his death, a representative for Lisa Marie stated, “She is completely 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.” Lisa Marie has four children, Riley, Benjamin, and twins Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood.

On June 20, Lisa Marie tweeted a photo with all her children and wrote, “Mama Lion with cubs.”
