Priscilla Presley speaks out on her daughter’s birthday.
In a statement to Fox News Digital, Priscilla plans to “keep our family together” as she continues to mourn Lisa Marie Presley.
“Today would have been Lisa’s 55th birthday. My wish is to protect my three grandchildren and keep our family together,” she said.
From the first moment I held Lisa in my arms, I protected, loved and guided her, like I have my son. Our hearts are broken and I have to learn to live without my only daughter. We really love all of you, and we feel your prayers. Thank you so much for caring so deeply for our family.

The investigation into the cause of Lisa Marie’s death continues. She died on January 12 at the age of 54.
She was rushed to hospital after sheriff’s deputies responded to a “breathless call” from the musician’s home in Calabasas. Her mother was then seen entering the emergency room shortly after Lisa Marie arrived at the medical center.
The only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla is survived by his mother and three daughters – Riley, Harper Vivienne and Finley.
