In the caption, she wrote, “As I sit here in the airport, in Pensacola Florida, I find myself reflecting on the absence of my dad for the second year in a row.” She continued, “This isn’t just about missing him at the dinner table, or the lack of his laughter and jokes filling our home and family…it’s about the profound impact his absence has had on our family.”

The caption continued, saying that the Chrisley family has struggled to find its footing since Todd went to prison. “Our family, one that was once whole and complete, now feels fractured and incomplete without my sweet mama and daddy,” she wrote.

The Chrisley’s Daughter Plans To ‘Fight The Good Fight’

Then Savannah Chrisley talked about how her family’s experience has made her more aware of the “harsh realities” of the prison system. She went on, saying that prison sentences don’t just punish the accused, but the families often suffer as well.

“The supposed justice often feels unjust, and the system designed to protect us sometimes feels like it’s doing the opposite. I am not okay,” Savannah wrote.

While she said that she enjoys looking back on happy family photos and moments they shared together, the memories can also be painful at times. She is reminded of everything she’s lost and how uncertain the future will be for their family.

To conclude the post, Savannah Chrisley said that she will continue to advocate for reform and will “never stop fighting the good fight.”

Todd and Julie Chrisley were indicted in August 2019 on 12 counts of bank and wire fraud, conspiracy, and tax evasion. The couple has denied all of the allegations being made against them, and they were cleared of their tax evasion charges in the state of Georgia in October 2019. However, they still faced federal charges.

In May 2022, the Chrisleys went to trial and were found guilty. Todd and Julie were sentenced to 12 and 7 years, respectively. Although they tried to appeal their case, they were asked to report for their prison sentences in January 2023 after spending one last holiday season with their family. In September 2023, their sentences were reduced by almost two years.
