Priscilla Presley Post on Facebook: These are some of the darkest days of my family’s life. The shock of losing Ben has been devastating. Trying to put all the pieces together of all the possible whys has penetrated my soul. Each day I wake up I pray it will get better, Then, I think of my daughter and the pain she is going through as she was a doting mother. Ben’s father, Danny who is completely lost, as Ben was his only son. Riley, so loving and so close to him: Harper and Finley, who absolutely adored Ben. Navarone, who struggles deeply with loss and death. Rest in peace Ben, you were loved.
The Mississippi-born, Tennessee-raised singer’s widow Priscilla wrote on July 22: ‘These are a number of the darkest days of my household’s life. The shock of shedding Ben has been devastating.’
