Priscilla also spoke at the memorial, where she first read a note written by Riley.

"I have no idea how to put my mother into words," the 77-year-old actor read. "Truth is, there are too many. Lisa Marie Presley was an icon, a role model, a superhero to many people all over the world, but Mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero, in much more ways than one."

Priscilla, who was married to Elvis from 1967-1977, then read a poem titled Old Soul that eulogized the late singer's life.

"Lisa, we all love you."
