Comedian Ryan Dorsey shared his 7-year-old son’s tribute to his late mom Naya Rivera on Sunday, May 14.

“Josey did a butterfly release for Mother’s Day with his grandmothers (and Bess). He then held up his little elf to the sky, smiling and saying: Happy Mother’s Day in heaven, mom,” he wrote on his social networks.

The ‘Ray Donovan’ actor explained in his post that he recently found the pixie while renovating Josey’s bedroom. “I redid her room and as the house is a bit messy… Bess appeared a few days ago, remembers Ryan Dorsey. She fell from a blanket behind a mirror. For him, it was a sign. He further confided about his son: “His spirit is amazing.” And to conclude: “Don’t wait to show your love.”

Death by accidental drowning

Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey first met in 2010 and briefly dated before going their separate ways. They reconciled in 2014, married in July of that year and welcomed Josey in September 2015 before divorcing in June 2018.

The ‘Glee’ actress died by accidental drowning in July 2020. She and her son were on a boat trip on Lake Piru near Los Angeles. Naya Rivera jumped into the water to go swimming but did not return, the little boy had told investigators. Following the death of his ex, Ryan Dorsey was given sole custody of Josey.
