The portrait is done



I got the portrait of my mom back! I'm so pleased with it. A big thank you shout out to my dad.


My mother-in-law, Lourdes took me to a framing shop and helped me pick out the mats and frame. The frame is silver but has rust colored lines through it that match her hair.


We hung it at the bottom of our stairs and it's in between the kitchen and living/dinning room area.


The kids and I are enjoying having her picture so close by, and in a small way it's like having her with us.

Claudia keeps looking up and asking "mommy, nana is in our heart, right?"
I'm trying my best to explain that Jesus lives in our heart, and nana is with Jesus so in a way she's there too. And we will always carry her memory in our hearts.
We miss you mom. We will never forget the enormous love you poured into our lives.

Jennifer, that wall was made for this portrait. Your mom's smile radiates joy, just as her life did. I'm happy for you, finding the ideal frame and matting. The teal line around the mat is beautiful.

Your children are darling. They'll always remember what a wonderful Nana they had. I'm so glad your mom made those videos for them, aren't you?

As I viewed the picture of the kiddies looking at their preciousNana, I thought they that will always have her to look up to as a model to follow in life. Make sure you teach them the lessons your precious mother taught you. That will one of the greatest blessings and gifts in life you could ever give them.

Nana will always be in their hearts and with the picture there she will be in their minds. Teach them the lessons of love and faith that she taught you, to keep her in their life.
