Donald Trump's wife, Melania Trump, the former First Lady of the United States, delivered an emotional eulogy at her mother Amalia Knavs' funeral.

According to Fox News, at The Church of Bethesda-By-The-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, the ex-First Lady expressed her thoughts on Thursday, “My mother, the epitome of elegance and grace, exemplified the essence of a true woman.”

She added, “Her love for her husband, Viktor, my father; Ines, my sister; and me was boundless. Her nurturing spirit had no limits, creating a legacy that will last for generations.”

Melania,53, fondly recalled Knavs as a gentle grandmother who lavished care and affection on both her and 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,” the former model continued.

The ex-first lady reminisced about listening to her mother's stories from her time in the fashion industry while journeying through Paris and various European destinations.

These narratives not only imparted the significance of "couture" to her but also instilled in her a passion for fashion.

“She was a creator of dreams, and I am forever grateful for the beauty she brought into my life,” she added.
