Lisa Marie Presley is remembering her son, Benjamin Keough, on what would have been his 28th birthday.

In her first Instagram since his July 12 death, the singer shared a photo from one of his past birthdays and addressed her “beautiful beautiful angel.”

“I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven,” she wrote Wednesday. “My heart and soul went with you. The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day. I will never be the same.”

Ben, the son of Presley and Danny Keough and brother of actor Riley Keough, died by suicide.

“I know you would want that. Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Boy. You were much too good for this world.”

Riley honoured her brother with a series of photos, writing, “Happy birthday beautiful angel.”
