Amy, 33, shared a selfie with her mom on December 26. “I received the most thoughtful gift from my mom yesterday!! Grandma's vintage silver cross necklace that just happened to have opal in the center of it! Which just happens to be Daxton's birthstone! Like what!?” Amy began.
Amy’s son Daxton Ryan was born in November a few months after Mary died of an accidental drowning in June. The boutique owner added, “He knew Daxton was coming at the most perfect time, He knew my grandma would pass... He knew my mom and I would grow closer through the heartache.”
“He knew back when she bought this necklace that it would mean so much to me and would someday be mine! I'm just blown away! Just felt like grandma was smiling down and sending me a big hug from Heaven!” Amy ended her post.
The new mom revealed in August that her grandma Mary loved the name she picked for her son. “Not one day has gone by that I don't miss her. I wish I could call her, get her opinion on things, go get ice cream and spend the day together,” she said in a sentimental post. “She loved the name Dax Ryan and she was so excited about our little guy.”
Amy and her grandma were very close. Following Mary’s passing, the boutique owner credited her grandma for helping raise her.
In December, Amy had to publicly relive her grandma’s death when the funeral aired on the season finale of Counting On. She chose not to be filmed in the episode and later told fans, “I was a mess that day, and even though it was a celebration of her life it was still probably the hardest day I've ever had. Not a day has gone by where I don't think of her, she wasn't just a grandma to me but more of a best friend.”
