Lisa’s son Benjamin Keough died in 2020, aged just 27, of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, with his cause of death listed as suicide by The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office.
In Lisa’s harrowing last Instagram post, she provided light for her followers to help them deal with grief.
“Hi. In honour of it being National Grief Awareness Day, I wrote an essay about grief which was posted today on PEOPLE,” she penned.
“I thought I’d post it here in the hopes that anyone who needs to hear all of this it helps in some way. This is not a comfortable subject for anyone, and it is most unpopular to talk about.
“But if we’re going (to) make any progress on the subject, grief has to get talked about.
“Death is part of life whether we like it or not — and so is grieving.”

She continued. “Grief does not stop or go away in any sense, a year, or years after the loss.
"Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period.”
She admitted to “beating" herself up "tirelessly” and blamed herself every day for Benjamin’s death.
Her advice was to lean on others, telling fans: “Nothing, absolutely NOTHING takes away the pain, but finding support can sometimes help you feel a little bit less alone.”
Lisa Marie’s mother, Priscilla Presley, confirmed the news of her passing in a statement to PEOPLE on Thursday.
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” she said.
