In her Instagram post, LPBW matriarch looked like she was lounging on her luxury patio with her aging dad, who sported a green polo shirt and a matching face cap. Roloff,56, looked lovely in her signature jean and blouse outfit as she sat content with a wine glass. She sweetly captioned:

"What a wonderful memorable moment in the last few days with my dad. Sitting on the front porch, enjoying a happy hour and conversation…"


The TV star went on as she let fans know that Knight drove "all the way" to enjoy warm times with his star family and her fiance, Chris.

Amy Roloff is the famous daughter of Michigan natives Patricia and Gordon Knight. While the Knights are of average height, their daughter has a form of dwarfism, achondroplasia, which later became part of her stardom story. 

She was sad that all she had now were memories.

Growing up, Roloff experienced stigma from her peers, but these days it's all about the good life. Once in a tell-all with her brother, the reality star mentioned that her parents had no idea what she went through. However, it is all love, and she mostly spends her time visiting them at Michigan.

Several times on social media, the showbiz star shows off her parents on social media and flaunts how much they were aging with grace. 


However, last year was a bit bleak after Roloff announced that her mom had passed on. Patricia was hospitalized for a while before her heart gave out.

In her official statement, the 56-year-old made it known that although she got to spend 50 years with her mom, she was sad that all she had now were memories.

Roloff told People how great her mom was and urged everyone to appreciate the moments in each day because life was a gift. Patricia is survived by two children, several grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
