Nobody's Opinion

“ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG”….Billy Joel

Nobody Knows

How hard it was to find your famous father dead on the floor. And you’re just a kid. And then, to go through four marriages, one of them being a man almost more famous than her father, and whom she tried to “save.” She couldn’t save her father, she couldn’t ‘save’ Michael Jackson, she couldn’t save her son, who committed suicide at 27, and for all her money, she couldn’t escape the pain.

Elvis’s daughter, Liza Marie Presley, looked so much like her dad it was uncanny. To have her die so young, at 54, is a shock, but she left us this wise comment…

To all of those who have suffered the loss of a child: And “never got over it.”

Be rest assured…you never will.

*****

“Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period.”

She admitted to feeling “judged and blamed” for her son’s death.

“I already battle with and beat myself up tirelessly and chronically, blaming myself every single day and that’s hard enough to now live with, but others will judge and blame you too, even secretly or behind your back which is even more cruel and painful on top of everything else,” she wrote.

Another life cut too short too soon. Every day, is precious, rich or poor.
