Riley Keough is “grateful” with a photo of the last time she saw her mother, Lisa Marie Presley. In the photo, which appears to have been taken four days before the singer’s shocking death, Keough and Lisa Marie shared a quiet moment together at a party marking what would have been Elvis Presley’s 88th birthday.

“I feel blessed to have a photo of the last time I saw my beautiful mama,” Keough wrote on Tuesday, thanking actress Georgie Flores for taking the photo.

The photo is seemingly from the January 8th bash at Graceland that not only honored Elvis’ birthday, but also Elvis director Baz Luhrmann and star Austin Butler ahead of the Golden Globes. Lisa Marie’s last public appearance came two days later when she attended the awards ceremony with her mother, Priscilla Presley.

On January 12, Lisa Marie, Elvis’s only child, died of cardiac arrest. The medical examiner has yet to make an official statement about the cause of death. She was buried and honored at a public memorial service on Sunday. Keough and her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, attended the funeral at Graceland. Smith-Petersen, a stuntman who married the actress in 2015, gave a speech on behalf of his wife.

“I am eternally grateful that I spent 33 years with you. I am sure that I chose the best mother for me in this world. … I remember when you bathed me as a baby. I remember the way how you’d hug me… and how you smelled,” Smith-Petersen read. He also publicly shared for the first time that Lisa Marie became a grandmother before her death.

“I hope I can love my daughter as you loved me, as you loved my brother and my sisters,” Smith-Petersen read. “Thank you for giving me strength, my heart, my empathy, my courage, my sense of humor, my manners, my temper, my wildness, my tenacity. I am a product of your heart, my sisters are a product of you heart, my brother is a product of your heart.”
