Ryan Dorsey pens emotional tribute to Naya Rivera one year after her funeral

Ryan Dorsey has penned an emotional tribute to his ex-wife Naya Rivera, one year after her funeral.

The Glee star tragically drowned on July 8 last year at the age of 33, after renting a pontoon boat at Lake Piru in Southern California with her and Ryan’s son Josey.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Ryan shared a black-and-white photo of Josey next to two snaps of Naya, marking one year since the actress was laid to rest.

In a lengthy post, he wrote: “Today…A year ago we laid you to rest. I still can’t believe it. The year has flown by, so fast that it doesn’t seem like it’s been a year at all.”

“Our boy has grown so much. He’s such an explorer, so inquisitive. He’s sweet, so funny, and his laugh always lights up the room. He’s an intuitive soul to say the least. To know him is to love him, everyone that meets him is always smiling.”

“He’s doing ok. He’s such a resilient strong kid. He misses you but knows he’ll see you again, and the invisible string is something that’s helped us out during this ever-evolving transition of your time with us on earth that was unfairly & for reasons we’ll never understand cut short…too soon…”

“July will probably always be a strange and difficult month in the years that are hopefully plentiful in the future…still hard to see photos, still haven’t been able to read or watch anything…as the years go by strength will be on my side as I will share the memories with what is the brightest star of your legacy left on this earth, our beautiful son, Josey.”

“The thumbs up…only seemed right. I remember the first time he did it back to you. At jujitsu, you gave him a thumbs up and he returned the gesture…it was so sweet. Maybe it’s silly and doesn’t make sense to be doing this on IG and putting this out there, but so is this whole thing. So there’s that…”

Ryan continued: “Fly high, Rest In Peace, knowing he’s doing 👍 ok…he’s being raised right, and he’s got a lot of family and people around him that love him, and you.🖤💔💙🖤”

“For everyone out there that’s gone through similar events of loss…you know there’s not really any words that make it better…we know some days are better than others…but know our hearts and energy are with you.”

“We keep going, because that’s all we can do while being as strong as we can be. 🙏❤️❤️❤️❤️”

Ryan and Naya tied the knot back in 2014, welcoming their son Josey the following year.

The former couple called it quits four years later.

Following Naya’s death, her younger sister Nickayla moved in with Ryan to help him raise Josey.
