Priscilla further spoke of her daughter’s declining health and her last interaction with her daughter, she asserted, "She didn't look well that night, and I was concerned, She asked Jerry Schilling, one of my best friends, if he could hold her.

As per Mirror, in response to Piers Morgan's inquiry about Lisa Marie's state of mind, Priscilla shared, "I think so," she replied.

Reflecting on their final moments together at the Golden Globes and how they enjoyed the event together. She exclaimed, “We had just gotten there, you go down all these stairs. I tripped a little bit because I had these high heels on, and she started laughing so hard. I started laughing. We hadn’t even had a drink yet. She goes, 'Oh my God, Mom, you can’t even have a drink.' … It was fun, a fun memory. Then we sat down and ordered drinks, and she said, 'Mom, my stomach hurts really bad.' We immediately got up and left.”
This unimaginable loss has deeply affected Priscilla, who continues to grapple with the grief of losing her cherished daughter, Lisa Marie.
