Americans grew concerned when, for the first time in years, Melania Trump did not appear beside her husband in their family Christmas photo. People began to wonder where the former first lady was—as Trump’s presidential campaign heated up.
It quickly came to light that Melania’s mother, Amalija Knavs, was ill. The former first lady had traveled to be by her side.
We later learned that Melania’s mother passed and the family was in mourning. The family held a funeral for Amalija at a church in Florida. Melania gave the eulogy for her mother during the service, which has been revealed online. And the message she shared is touching millions.

“My mother, the epitome of elegance and grace, exemplified the essence of a true woman… She showered her grandson, Barron, with affection, illuminating his world with love, tender care, and unwavering devotion… She embodied the best mother, wife, grandmother, mother-in-law, a true beacon of love and luxury in our lives.”
