"Time stood still for a few moments as I looked through these precious photos," she began in her caption.
Linda Thompson, who dated Elvis Presley from 1972 to 1976, recently posted an adorable collection of the late Lisa Marie Presley's photographs from when she was a young child. Thompson, 72, posted pictures of the late musician as a child on Instagram on Wednesday, March 29. "Like many of you, I am doing a little bit of spring cleaning and ran across this photo album from back in the day. These are all Polaroids. Time stood still for a few moments as I looked through these precious photos," she began in her caption.

"Little 'Lisa Marisa' as I remember her so lovingly. She was a precious little girl! Shown here she was six years old and had just lost her two front teeth," Thompson wrote, referring to the first three photos in the Instagram carousel. The third Polaroid image in the collection was titled "Snaggle Puss" and was taken in November 1974. It shows the young Lisa Marie who was then missing her two front teeth, per PEOPLE.
Thompson continued, "She wanted me to take some pictures of her in my dressing area at the Monovale house. We had such a wonderful relationship for so many years. She's still a part of my heart."

A fourth image depicts a young Lisa Marie relaxing on top of a boat in Lake Tahoe in 1973 while her head is resting on the shoulders of a lady whom Thompson referred to as "Dee". The fifth image of Lisa Marie shows her standing in pajamas in front of a Christmas tree that same year with Thompson and several other ladies.
Thompson then talked of Lisa Marie's daughter, Riley Keough, appreciating her presence on the Amazon Prime series Daisy Jones & the Six. "There are so many nuances in Riley's facial expressions that remind me of her beautiful mom. Lisa's lovely, formidable, powerful presence lives on in her gorgeous and talented daughter.💜👏🙏🏻🌹," Thompson concluded her caption.
On January 12, Lisa Marie, 54, passed away after a sudden cardiac arrest. She is survived by her mother, the actress, and entrepreneur Priscilla Presley, 77, and her three children Riley, and twins Finley and Harper Lockwood, both 14. After her passing, Thompson told PEOPLE that she was "absolutely devastated and shocked," adding that she and Lisa "kept in touch off & on for all these years — most recently by text." She said, "In fact, the very last text to me was a simple 'Love you Linda' with a heart emoji."
"I will always be profoundly grateful to the little nine-year-old Lisa Marie, who had the presence of mind to call me from Graceland the fateful day her daddy died to give me the news," said Thompson.
