Presley shared a photo taken after the two commemorated their relationship in a modern way to honor the second anniversary of her son’s death.
Presley shared with Instagram a photograph of their feet, each adorned with a Celtic eternity knot.
She shared a heartbreaking message regarding the permanent markings in the comments section of her post.
“Several years ago, on Mother’s Day, my son and I got these matching tattoos on our feet. 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,” Presley wrote.
Ben Keough died in Calabasas, CA, on July 12, 2000, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, as reported by TMZ.
While the film was the primary topic of her posts, her first words were about the enormity of her grief after her son’s death.
“Hello everyone, I haven’t posted in quite some time because there isn’t much to say, as I am and will forever be mourning the loss of my son,” she explained.
“Navigating through this hideous grief that destroyed and shattered my heart and soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole. Not much else aside from my other three children gets my time and attention anymore.”
