Everyone enjoy Pumpkin season at Roloff farms today and next weekend. 🎃. I’m sad I won’t be there to meet some of you. 🍁🍂🧡🎃🧡🍂🍁. Today I’m heading to Michigan for my Mom’s memorial on Thursday and to say goodbye to her And grateful to be with my Dad for a little bit afterwards. ❤️. I’m torn with my emotions. I miss her so much and at the same time happy she’s not in pain anymore and with the Lord. I’ll miss Chris while I’m gone but so glad he’ll be coming out to be with me for the service and My kids too. It’s a kind of mixed emotions for my heart kind of day. I’m sad and yet I know I’m blessed in many ways and I’m so thankful for life and moments. Remember to be kind and let others know you love them every day. Life is but a moment and let’s collect as many as we can while doing our best to live life. #godisgood #amyroloffssecondact #lovemymomforever #storyofamyrandchrism #lovethelord🙏🏻

Although the photos were definitely striking, the highlight of the post was the touching message that Amy wrote in the caption. She started saying that her family came together to celebrate her mother’s life. She added:

“I say celebrate, because though I mourn and am sad she is not here anymore, my heart knows she is w/ the Lord. And that changes everything when faith is there. And her faith, her Christian walk and life were examples for me during my growing up life.”

Describing her mother

Amy pointed out that Patricia’s life was not perfect, but she gave up everything for her husband and children. The “Little People, Big World” star confessed that she didn’t know her mother daily as an adult because she moved away from Michigan shortly after tying the knot.

However, during the funeral weekend, she “got to see and know” Patricia even more, describing her as an “amazing, wonderful, sometimes complex, giving, compassionate, loving, and beautiful woman and mom.” Amy then wrote:

“Mom. I was surrounded by love with Chris, my kids and family and that is a treasure. I’m honored to be her daughter. And I will continue to do my best to live and love in my life the best I can.”

After stating that Patricia was with the Lord and that her life and faith was her legacy, the TV personality finally thanked her and wrote that she would forever love her.

This weekend, my family came together to celebrate my Mom’s life. 💗🎉💗. I say celebrate, because though I mourn and am sad she is not here anymore, my heart knows she is w/ the Lord. And that changes everything when faith is there. 🙏🏻. And her faith, her Christian walk and life were examples for me during my growing up life. Her life wasn’t perfect but she gave her all to my Dad, myself and my siblings because she loved her family. I really didn’t have the opportunity to know my Mom well, on an everyday basis as an adult - because I got married and moved from Michigan to California, then OR and there raised my family. My time with her were visits to Michigan and I tried to soak up every moment and story with her as I could. This weekend was about family and friends sharing even more stories and I received an amazing gift. I got to see and know my Mom even more. She was and is an amazing wonderful, sometimes complex, giving compassionate loving beautiful woman and Mom. I cried and mourned this weekend but I also celebrated her, my Mom. I was surrounded by love with Chris, my kids and family and that is a treasure. I’m honored to be her daughter. And I will continue to do my best to live and love in my life the best I can. She’s with the Lord now and though my heart is sad, her life and faith is my legacy I still have as my example for my own. Thank you Mom. ❤️ I love you, forever and always. #myfamily #faith #iseverythingtome #godisgood #lovemymom

A previous message to Patricia

It was not the first time that Amy shared a touching message honoring her late mother, though. Shortly after Patricia’s death was announced, she posted throwback photos on Instagram, followed by a lengthy caption.

In it, she showed appreciation to her four children, three daughters-in-law, one son-in-law, and two grandchildren.

Every time I look at this photo I’m reminded how blessed I am. I have 4 amazing wonderful kids, 3 wonderful daughter-in-laws, one fantastic son-in-law, 2 precious grand kids (2 more on the way now). 😊❤️. I thank the Lord everyday for them. And how the Lord put it on my heart last year to encourage my kids, if they could, to take a trip to Michigan with me to see my Mom and Dad , their grandparents, and my family, last summer (2018). My Dad was turning 90 and my Mom 86. I just knew it was the right time, more than ever before, for them to go and visit them. My Mom and Dad got to see my kids, their grandchildren again and to meet their great grand children (Jackson and Ember). 💙💗My Mom hoped she would get to see her great grandchildren one day and I’m so happy she did! ❤️ Then 9 months later, earlier this year, my mom heart surgery. She wasn’t the same physically, ever since. My Mom passed on Sept 24th😔. I’m going back home, to Michigan, to say good-bye 😔 and be with my Dad and my family. ❤️. But the moments and memories I have of her will be with me for a life time. Life is filled with tons of moments - many we may let slip by. Be sure to let what doesn’t really matter slip by more than the many little moments that do/should matter. Time is but a moment. Make the best of those moments as you can. For you can’t get them back. 🌻❤️🌻. Mom I’m going to miss you. I do miss you already. You’re not hurting anymore and You’re with the Lord now and for that I’m grateful. God is good always. Love you Mom. 💗🌻💗. #lovemymomforever #familyalways #faith

At the end of the moving text, the “Little People, Big World” confessed that she missed her mother a lot but was relieved that she was no longer in pain.

The news about Patricia’s passing came about two weeks after Amy and her boyfriend Chris Marek got engaged. He proposed only one day after her birthday at a restaurant they frequently visit together.
