"Navigating through this hideous grief that absolutely destroyed and shattered my heart and my soul into almost nothing has swallowed me whole," she continued.
Presley made a point of expressing that she has since focused on the well-being of her other children. She wrote that "not much else aside from my other 3 children gets my time and attention anymore."
