As OK! previously reported, Ivana passed away on Thursday, July 14, after suffering a fall in her lavish New York home. Months later, Ivanka took to Instagram to reflect on the complicated feelings of celebrating the holidays without her mother for the very first time.
“Grief during the holidays can be harder than any other time of the year,” she shared in an Instagram Story followed by several photos of her family enjoying Christmas together in past years. “New memories are being made, my children’s laughter is abundant, my 96-year-old grandma’s presence at our table brings us all joy, yet the void is undeniable.”
