It was a year ago this week that the only grandson of Elvis Presley, Benjamin Keough, died by suicide at the age of 27. The son of Lisa Marie Presley has since been buried by The King and other family members in Graceland’s Meditation Garden. And recently his sister Riley Keough has paid tribute to her late brother on her social media.

Riley, the oldest of Elvis Presley’s four grandchildren, wrote on her Instagram: “Today has been a year without you baby brother. I miss you endlessly every day.”

The 32-year-old actress posted a number of touching childhood photos of her with Benjamin.

Elvis’ former girlfriend Linda Thompson, who lived at Graceland with The King and Lisa Marie during the early 1970s also paid tribute.

The former Miss Tennessee model commented on the post: “Precious photo. I remember both of those sweet faces.”

Last October, Riley also paid tribute to Benjamin in a similar post on what would have been his 28th birthday.

As did Lisa Marie herself, who wrote at the time: “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.”

Lisa Marie added: “I know you would want that. Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Boy. You were much too good for this world.”

On her own birthday this year, Elvis’ daughter shared a picture of herself with Riley and her other daughters, twins Finley and Harper Lockwood

She captioned the post: “Thank you for all of the overwhelming birthday wishes from everyone.

“Like everyday, I couldn’t have made it through without these three by my side. ~ LMP.”

Last autumn Graceland released a statement concerning Benjamin’s burial at the Memphis mansion.

It read: “Benjamin Storm Presley Keough was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden at Graceland with his family including his grandfather, Elvis Presley, great-grandmother, Gladys Presley, great-grandfather, Vernon Presley and great-great-grandmother, Minnie Mae Presley.”

Benjamin’s final resting place in the Meditation Garden is by Graceland’s pool.
