    Priscilla Presley, left, and Lisa Marie Presley, right, speak to fans gathered at a candlelight vigil at Graceland to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death.

    While today marks 35 years since his death, Elvis Presley continues to be remembered.

    And no place was that more evident than at his Graceland home on Wednesday night when tens of thousands gathered there for a candlelight vigil to celebrate the music icon.

    Among those attending? None other than the King's former wife, Priscilla, and their daughter, Lisa Marie. It marked the first time the two have appeared together at the annual event in Memphis.

    Is Alex Pettyfer really engaged to Elvis' granddaughter?

    "I'm always really happy when I'm here," Lisa Marie told Natalie Morales on Thursday's Today while chatting inside the house. "It always reminds me of when I was the happiest, I think, in my life. It always just brings me back there when I come back."

    "This was so much a part of him, this home. He loved this home," added Priscilla, who sat alongside her daughter. "He always came back here no matter what. His presence is just all around, going into each room."

    Presley was only 42 when he passed away at Graceland on Aug. 16, 1977.
