Remembering Benjamin Keough

Back in 2012, Presley proudly told CMT that all of her children embodied a bit of her late father, Elvis Presley. She went on to say that her son Benjamin, however, was the one who looked most like him. Presley shared:

"He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage! Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him."

Our thoughts and consolations are with the Presley family during this difficult time, as they grieve the loss of brother, son, and friend, Benjamin Keough.
