"Thank you all for your condolences, you have touched me with your words."
"It has been a very difficult time but just knowing your love is out there makes a difference."

Priscilla also spoke at her daughter's memorial on January 22, sharing a tribute written by one of her granddaughters.
"Lisa Marie Presley was an icon, a role model, a superhero to many people all over the world."
"But mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero, in much more ways than one."
"Even now, I can't get across everything there is to be understood or known about her."
"But as she always said, 'I'll do my best.'"
Priscilla also read a poem written by her granddaughter.
"She always knew she wouldn't be here too long. Childhood passes by with a glimpse of her green eye."
"She then grew a family of her own. Then came her second child, leaving her with suspicion."
"Could this be the angel that takes me home?"
"Now she is home where she always belonged, but my heart is missing her love."
"She knew that I loved her. I fear I'll never touch her, but the old soul is always with me."
"She doesn't drift above."
