Written by: Vasantha


Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley's sole daughter, was laid to rest Sunday morning in front of Graceland's famed estate in Memphis, Tennessee.

A C Wharton, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, Jerry Schilling, and Joel Weinshanker, managing partner of Elvis Presley Enterprises, spoke at Lisa Marie's funeral.

Jason Clark and The Tennessee Mass Choir, as well as Axl Rose, Alanis Morissette and Alanis Morissette, performed.

Elvis Schilling, who was an aide, producer, and manager of Lisa Marie, told stories about him and "a girl named Memphis," the name he called her.

Schilling said Elvis asked him to stay until Lisa Marie's birth in February 1968 at Graceland during Christmas and New Year's Day 1967.

During the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 10, Schilling accompanied Lisa Marie Presley on the red carpet. “Last thing she said to me was, ‘Jerry Schilling, I love you,’” Schilling said.

“As I was in the hospital with her father when Priscilla was giving birth, I was at the hospital with her mother when she left us,” Schilling said. “Memphis, I will always love you.”
