"Thank you all for your condolences, you have touched me with your words. It has been a very difficult time but just knowing your love is out there makes a difference," the King of Rock and Roll's widow tweeted on Monday, January 23.

(Lisa Marie shared Riley and Benjamin, who died by suicide in 2020 at age 27, with ex-husband Danny Keough.)

"I have no idea how to put my mother into words. Truth is there are too many. She was an icon, a role model, a superhero to many people all over the world," read the poem, which included a note that the 54-year-old always knew she "wouldn't be here too long."

Meanwhile, Danny — who had been living with his ex-wife — returned home from dropping her twins off at school around the time her housekeeper found her unresponsive. He performed CPR until paramedics arrived at the scene, where they then administered at least one dose of epinephrine during resuscitation efforts and regained a pulse before rushing her to a Southern California hospital.

Lisa Marie was in a medically induced coma at the time of her passing, having suffered a second cardiac arrest leading to her death.
