AceShowbiz - Pumpkin season is one famous tradition at Roloff Farms during Halloween. While the family still is still holding the event this year, something will be different as matriarch Amy Roloff will not be present in the festivity.
Amy took to her Instagram account to tell her followers that she would not be playing a big role during this year's Pumpkin season because she had a family matter in Michigan following the recent death of her mother Patricia. Amy explained, "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."
Alongside a photo of her and her fiance, Chris Marek, posing on Roloff Farms in front of the pumpkin patch sign, the "Little People, Big World" star continued writing, "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," she added. "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."
Although she skipped the pumpkin season for an inevitable reason, some fans couldn't help but feeling disappointed. "Why aren't you part of pumpkin season this year? I know emotionally it's got to be hard, but you are what made Roloff Farm, Roloff Farm!" one fan wrote. Another one added, "Hate to hear you arent going to be a part of pumpkin season. Inspite of things you were a major factor of its success throughout the years. People love you Amy."
Now that Amy has a smaller role in the Pumpkin season, it is reported that Matt Roloff's girlfriend Caryn Chandler is front and center at the farm. Matt reportedly has been cleaning and clearing the farm and Caryn has been very supportive by being his side the entire time.
