Former First Lady Melania Trump recently delivered a heartfelt eulogy at the private funeral of her mother, Amalija Knavs, in Florida. The passing of Mrs. Knavs, at the age of 78, was announced earlier this month, and Melania Trump took the opportunity to pay tribute to her beloved mother.
Despite his ongoing defamation trial in New York, Donald Trump joined his wife to mourn the loss of her mother. The judge had denied the request to postpone the proceedings for a day, leading Mr. Trump to prioritize attending the funeral.
During the eulogy, Melania Trump described her mother as “a ray of light in the darkest of days.” She spoke of the indomitable bond they shared and the radiant joy her mother brought into their lives. The presence of Amalija Knavs seemed to make the world shimmer with positivity and happiness.
Amalija Knavs and her husband, Viktor, became US citizens in 2018 after residing in the country on green cards sponsored by their daughter. Their journey to citizenship was made possible through the family reunification visa process, which former President Donald Trump had criticized as “chain migration” and advocated for its elimination.
Before coming to the United States, Mrs. Knavs worked at a textile factory in the Slovenian town of Sevnica, while Viktor pursued a career as a car salesman. Melania Trump attended high school in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, which was about an hour’s drive away from her hometown.
Melania Trump’s path crossed with Donald Trump’s in 1998 when she was working as a model. Their relationship blossomed, and in 2006, they welcomed their son, Barron, into the world. It was also the year when Melania Trump became a US citizen, cementing her commitment to her new country.
Amidst the personal loss, Melania Trump’s eulogy was a testament to the strength of the bond between a mother and a daughter. It highlighted the impact Amalija Knavs had on her family and the lasting memories she leaves behind.
The eulogy also shed light on the journey of the Knavs family, their pursuit of the American dream, and the value they placed on family unity. While the funeral was a private affair, Melania Trump’s words resonated beyond the immediate gathering.
They serve as a reminder of the universal experience of loss and the power of love and connection in navigating difficult times. The eulogy also offers a glimpse into the personal side of Melania Trump, allowing the public to see her vulnerability and the deep affection she held for her mother.
