“Thank you all for your condolences, you touched me with your words”, she tweeted Monday night.

“It’s been a very difficult time, but just knowing your love is out there makes a difference.”

Her tweet came just hours after her moving speech at Lisa Marie’s memorial service at Graceland on Sunday.

Reading aloud to mourners, Priscilla’s lines began: “In 1968 she entered our world / Born weary, fragile, but strong / She was delicate but full of life.

“She always knew she wouldn’t stay here too long / Childhood passes with a glimpse of her green eye / Then she started her own family.”

The poem went on to refer to the death by suicide of Lisa Marie’s son, Benjamin, in 2020, saying, “Then came her second child leaving her with suspicion / Could it be the angel that takes me home?”

Fans gather to pay their respects at the Lisa Marie Presley memorial on January 22, 2023 in Memphis, Tennessee.
