Ana Navarro remembers her mother

Soon after Navarro’s mom died, her father tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) which made it impossible for him to fly to Miami. Navarro’s dad was supposed to spend the holidays with her and mourn her mother’s death together but that didn’t end up happening. Luckily, Navarro’s father was able to test negative for New Year’s Day and they had a lovely reunion.

Weeks later, Navarro remembered her mother a month after losing her and dedicated a touching Instagram post full of emotion.

“My mom has been gone a month today,” Navarro shared on Jan. 14. “Somebody -I don’t know who- sent me these pillows with pictures of my beautiful mamma. There was no card. I hope whomever it was, sees this so I can say, ‘thank you.’ My dad slept with one of the pillows next to him the entire time he was here. He took one with him to Nicaragua and left the other in his room in my house for when he comes back. Said it made him feel closer to her.”
