It did not take long before her fans and followers swarmed the post with messages of support. This user tried to lift her spirits, writing, “Hang in there, Priscilla. The world loves you. There’s so much beauty in that. Sending you hugs, love, and light. ❤️.”
Another user penned, “God bless you, Mrs. Presley.” While this person empathized with her by noting how much loss she had endured, adding, “My heart breaks for all that you are experiencing.

Per US Magazine, Priscilla began reading, “I have no idea how to put my mother into words; the truth is there are too many. 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,'” the eulogy ended. Afterward, she hopped on Twitter to thank supporters by writing:
“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.”
