    Magnificent! When a mother loses their child, no one can ever understand that grief. This showed strength that most of us will never, have. As fans, we’ll always be here for you, Priscilla.

  3. Joe Barzo says:

    How she made it through reading this beautiful poem is beyond me. It speaks to the character and fortitude of a beautiful mother and grandmother who will carry on in her daughter’s physical absence…guiding her loved ones on the right path. Prayers for this family in gratitude for all that you have given us over the decades.

      I couldn’t have. I wrote a poem for a friend who died of cancer in 2017 and I gave it to the funeral celebrant to read, because my voice would have cracked reading out loud.

      The “Rock” that is Pricilla. You have always carried the weight of the world on your shoulders with dignity. We stand with you as mothers that have lost our children. There is nothing more difficult and we know how hard Lisa Marie struggled with that loss. Still she tried to help others. You have been Lisa’s inspiration through out her life. We pray for you. You mean the world to all of us. My tears are splashing down. Love and prayers for you. . . “Guardian of an American Legacy” We love you. 🇺🇸

    That took an amazing amount of strength for her to speak. She picked herself up to do it for her daughter Lisa. She did it for Lisa.

    This is just heartbreaking 💔 Lisa’s girls are just wonderful. She died with a broken heart for her son . How devastating. I pray her girls are forever protected by gods loving arms

    I cried and cried as her mom spoke. It was a beautiful message from her daughter, I think Riley wrote that speech. It was everything, the poem made me cry. Rest in Peace Lisa Marie! I pray for your children and your mother. OMG I know how Priscilla feels today. My son died by suicide, I know how Lisa Marie felt too. It is hard when you are here and your child is gone! Sending virtual hugs and love to the kids and their loved ones. Sorry for your loss.

      @writerforlifeify wait what?
      Her child committed suicide..
      U mean to say that hasn’t an affect for normal folk??
      U sound like a narcissist.

    • writerforlifeify says:

      I’ve heard it said that within the premature loss of a beloved child or spouse (or pet) there is a lesson about detachment. One must learn to let go, to detach, to surrender to the flow of life in all its seasons, however long or short.
      Lisa Marie said that when you suffer a loss (such as hers, and yours) you never ‘get over it’, you don’t ‘move on’, period. I understand her views on grief. But what is the alternative? What would her son or father have told her, if they could have communicated with her before she passed? Is there a way to avoid over-investing oneself in another person, no matter their relationship to you?
      In my case, my strongest bond has always been, for as long as I can remember, to my Inner Self; I also know that fundamentally, we are ALL interconnected, a single cell, if you will, divided into 8 billion bodies upon this earth. People come into my life, some for a season, some for (possibly) a lifetime, but always for a reason. But my core, my Truth, remains ever intact and free.
      I feel that Lisa Marie was a young soul, reed-in-the-wind-like, highly sensitive and open to love, yet seeking anchors to her authentic Self within others…..

      Much love to you on this very sad day. ❤

      Riley’s speech was already read by her husband.
      This was one of the twins whine Pricilla didn’t want to reveal.

      @Growth is in the Dirt , study the Bible and learn that God said to witness and spread the Gospel

    That is so sad. Seeing her mother say see is also painful. I can see her pain. A mother should never lose her child. Sending love and light. Prayers for the loss and grief

      What did she ever do?

    • FMC says:

      @Laura Matterazzo Thank you!! When I posted, I didn’t think I’d get any likes, much less replies. I was watching this with a few friends and just felt that I wanted to say something on behalf of us. I lost my son, so I was especially touched by Priscilla. I don’t have any crazy notions that she’s going to search YouTube and find MY comment. I just wrote it that way because that’s how it came out. Again, thank you for the kind reply.

    • FMC says:

      @K Butler Well, my dear, I know all too well the pain of losing a child. It takes all the strength in the world just to get out of bed… She is absolutely being strong!!
