Speak from the heart. Lisa Marie Presley’s half-brother, Navarone Garibaldisent a sweet message to fans after her public memorial service.
“Thank you so much for the support,” the 35-year-old wrote via his Instagram story on Tuesday, Jan. 24, two days after Lisa Marie was honored with a public service at Graceland. “Truly grateful to all of you.”
The singer of “Storm & Grace” passed away on January 12 at the age of 54 hours later Us weekly confirmed that she had been hospitalized due to cardiac arrest. Her mother, Priscilla Presleystruggled to hold back tears as she paid tribute to Lisa Marie at Sunday’s memorial.
“I’m going to read something my granddaughter wrote for all of you,” Priscilla began at the Presley family estate, referring to Lisa Marie’s twin daughters, Harper and Finely, 14, who she shared with her ex-husband. Michael Lockwood. “And this says it all.”
The Dallas alum continued, “I have no idea how to put my mom into words, the truth is there are too many. Lisa Marie Presley was an icon, a role model, a superhero to many people around the world, but Mom was my icon, my role model, my superhero in much more ways than one. Even now I can’t find everything there is to understand or know about her, but as she always said, ‘I’ll do my best.’”
Lisa Marie was the only daughter of Priscilla and the late Elvis Presley. After the couple’s divorce in 1973, the New York native moved on Marco Garibaldi. The pair welcomed Navarone in 1987 before calling it quits in 2006.
