Lisa Marie Presley is missing her son Benjamin on the second anniversary of his death.

The singer-songwriter, 54, and her actress daughter Riley Keough, 33, honored "Ben Ben" on Instagram Tuesday — two years after he died by suicide at the age of 27.

Lisa Marie shared a photo of the tattoos she and her son with Danny Keough got together.

"Several years ago, on Mother's Day, my son and I got these matching tattoos on our feet," she wrote on social media. "It's a Celtic eternity knot. Symbolizing that we will be connected eternally. We carefully picked it to represent our eternal love and our eternal bond."

Riley shared a photo with Ben from her 2015 wedding.

"Not an hour goes by where I don't think of you and miss you," she Riley wrote. "It's been two years today since you left and I still can’t believe you’re not here. You are so loved my Ben Ben."

Benjamin's girlfriend, Diana Pinto, also posted memories, admitting she "still can’t make sense of it."

Riley said in an interview last year that she was "totally debilitated" after her sibling's death in 2020. She was unable to get out of bed nor could she speak for two weeks. The pair were very close growing up in the spotlight as grandchildren of Elvis Presley.

Lisa Marie has been largely reclusive since the death of her only son. However, the singer, who is also mom to 13-year-old twins, Finley and Harper (with ex-husband Michael Lockwood), made rare appearances, however, to support Baz Luhrmann's Elvis film, which the Presley estate has supported. She also gave a rare TV interview with Riley by her side.

Ahead of that, Lisa Marie endorsed the film on Instagram, acknowledging she hadn't "posted in quite some time because there really isn’t much to say, as I am and will forever be mourning the loss of my son," she wrote in May. "Navigating through this hideous grief that absolutely destroyed and shattered my heart and my soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole."

And while "not much else aside from my other 3 children gets my time and attention anymore" she called the movie "nothing short of spectacular" and "is finally something [about Elvis] that myself and my children and their children can be proud of forever."

But it was bittersweet, she added. "It breaks my heart that my son isn’t here to see it. He would have absolutely loved it as well."
