The last two weeks have been a roller coaster ride. Happy and sad. Chris asked me to marry him and I couldn’t be happier - I said Yes. ❤️ and so excited and looking forward to continuing our journey together. 😊💍 So sad because A few days later my father told me mom was in the hospital and a day later my sister told me mom had passed away. She died on the 24th. My heart broke, I cried and sadness came upon me. I didn’t know what emotions to feel. Happy one moment sad the next. The woman who raised and taught me so much and loved me along w/ my dad passed away. She isn’t here anymore. I won’t be able to see and talk to her. And yet she’s not in pain and hurting anymore either. She lived a good life with my Dad. She didn’t have to go in a home but was able to stay in her home until she died. She would have been 87 years old and my parents would have been married 67 years on the 3rd. I’ll miss her a lot. I’ll miss not seeing her when I go back home - her strong feisty ways along with her gentle soft loving heart. I’m thankful for so much because of my Mom. I’m thankful she believed and had faith and know she’s with Jesus now. I’m thankful I got to talk to her on Sunday before she went to the hospital and then passed away. I know she’ll never stop loving me and is proud of me, I’m thankful all my kids got to go to Michigan last summer and see her and my dad and she got to meet her great grand kids. She was happy because of that. ❤️ I’m sad because I won’t be able to see and talk to her anymore and yet happy because she’s home with the Lord. I pray for my Dad. He’s by himself and He misses her so much. He’ll be 91 soon and he lost his friend, his wife and the person he’s known for over 70 years and been married to for 67 years ❤️ Even in my mom’s passing she is lovingly teaching and reminding me- life is but a moment. Be and do your best today and if tomorrow comes do it again. Mom, I love you ❤️ always. 2 Timothy 4:7-8

He continued describing Patricia as a "God-fearing mother" and credited her for inspiring qualities hardly seen in recent times. He then went on to praise Knight's parenting skills as well as that of his ex-wife Amy.

He lauded his ex-mother-in-law for raising "4 wonderful, accomplished adults, one of which was my xwife, Amy Roloff," and then moved on to Amy and thanking her for raising their four kids. 

Matt concluded, writing

"Today I honor Pat, her long successful storied life, and pay tribute to the example she set to everyone’s life she touched. God bless you Patricia Knight , your committed husband Gordon Knight and the family you leave behind. I will always cherish your legacy. Matt.”

My trips to Michigan now,ever since I left and moved to get married 31 years ago, are about moments I can cherish and take back w/ me to Oregon. It’s like having a little piece of Michigan with me all the time. 🌻💙🏡💙🌻. This time the moments meant so much more- maybe because I’m not so sure when the next time I’ll get to share a day, a conversation, a meal ... w/ my Mom and Dad. As I get older and look back and see how much time has gone by to how many days I have to look forward to - not so much the # of days but more in being sure I’m grateful for the moment I have right now. I’m so thankful I just got to hang out w/ my parents, and just be with them. I loved that Chris was by my side and able to come out again and share in the moment and hang out w/ me too. Sharing, gathering, thankful for now. ❤️🌻 Moments, no matter what goes on or happens in your life, good and bad, happy or unhappy, I think there is always room to gather... to love, have hope, know Joy, forgiveness, embrace, agree, disagree, love more... to make meaningful moments. Because they matter, have value and purpose in our life. I’m thankful I got to make more moments with my mom and dad to bank in my memory and Chris was w/ me. ❤️😊❤️ My mom is hanging in there. She’s still able to get around a little - she’s determined and her mind is strong but her body is weak. Just try to take time to appreciate moments everyday before they slip away. Love to you all 🌻❤️😊❤️🌻 #amyroloffssecondact #michigangirl #lovemyfamily #travelswithamyandchris
