Priscilla Presley is speaking 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’ve protected, loved and guided her, as I have my son. Our hearts are broken, and I am having to learn to live without my only daughter. We truly love all of you, and we feel your prayers. Thank you so much for caring so deeply for our family.”

The investigation into Lisa Marie’s cause of death continues. She died on Jan. 12 at the age of 54.
She was rushed to the hospital after sheriff’s deputies responded to a “not breathing call” from the musician’s Calabasas home. Her mother was later seen walking into the emergency room shortly after Lisa Marie arrived at the medical center.
The only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla is survived by her mother and three daughters – Riley, Harper Vivienne and Finley.
