SARAH'S COMMOTION – Family and friends of the model and singer took turns on the stage of the funeral ceremony. First of all Priscilla, the 77-year-old mother, who spoke a few words in front of the coffin, overwhelmed by emotion: 'Our heart is broken, Lisa Marie we love you'. Then Ben Smith Peterson, husband of Riley Keough, to whom Lisa Marie's other daughter entrusted the reading of a short text. The visibly moved friend was also remembered by Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew of England: 'Pain is the price we pay for love'. The Duchess of York and Elvis' daughter had met in 2009 and since then their friendship had become increasingly firm, so much so that Lisa Marie had stayed in the Marbella villa of Ferguson after the death of her ex-husband Michael Jackson.
AXL ROSE – Many famous people from the world of music present at the funeral, including Billy Corgan (leader of the Smashing Pumpkins), Alanis Morissette and Axl Rose, who played and sang the song at the piano November Rain . “I never imagined singing here, especially under these circumstances. I don't know if I deserve to be here, I know that Lisa loved her family very much and was protective of her father, her legacy and her love for her,” the musician said. Lisa Marie Presley will be buried in Graceland, the house is a pilgrimage destination for millions of people and Elvis is also buried here.Source: oggi.it
