Ana Navarro copes with her mother’s loss

The process of grieving is not an easy one, especially when it’s the loss of a parent. Navarro had been keeping her followers up to date with her mom’s health, sharing beautiful photos of happier times and remembering her mother’s greatest qualities.

In an Instagram post from Dec. 17, Navarro openly talked about how she was experiencing grief.

“The best I can describe grief is that it comes like the waves in the ocean,” she shared. “Sometimes the waters are calm. Other times, it feels like ripples or small waves. And then, there are moments when it feels like crashing waves so forceful, they may pull you under. I’m learning to just let go, ride the waves as they come, and keep my head above water.”

Navarro continued, “Losing my mom is really hard for my whole family. Sometimes I think her heart gave out from loving so much. I’m grateful for friends and loved ones I can lean on and a sweet poodle to hug. Thank you to all those who’ve reached out to support my family.”
