Benjamin Keough, grandson of Elvis Presley (1935-1977), died on June 12 at the age of 27. His sister Riley Keough (31) has a hard time struggling with the loss. On Instagram, the actress mourned her brother with touching words.
"The mornings are the hardest. Sometimes I forget you are gone," Keough writes to a photo collection with the most beautiful moments of both. "I can't cry because I'm afraid that I won't be able to stop. A pain that is new to me," the 31-year-old continued. There are no suitable words to describe her brother. "Angel is the best I can think of. Pure light. Little brother. Best friend. Wild man. Intellectual. Witness of my life. Kindred. Protector," Keough describes her brother and her relationship with him.
"Too sensitive for this harsh world"
He was too sensitive to this harsh world and had left a huge hole in Keough's heart when he died. "I cannot believe that you have left me. Not you sweet Ben. Everyone but you. This is what true heartache must feel like. I hope that we will meet again," said the actress.
Riley and Benjamin Keough are the children of Lisa Marie Presley (52) and musician Danny Keough (55). The grandparents are Elvis (1935-1977) and Priscilla Presley (75).
