You've always been

the person I've turned to,

Mom.

From my very earliest memories,

you've been

the gentle voice in my ear,

the warm hand in mine,

the comfort and peace

in my days.

Te quiero tanto, Mom. Siempre te tendre en mi corazon.

Anna Kristina

Myriam's Hands
Shared by Jon Whichard on 12/15/2016
Myriam's hands taken 12/09/2016 Warrenton Virginia the night before she passed.. ❤️

Pretty much every visit to see Myriam at her room at the Warrenton, Virginia nursing home on hospital hill, her daughter Anna Kristina or her sons would hold her beautiful hands. On some occasions Kristina's husband Jon would take a picture of this moment. Myriam once played the piano elegantly and loved music especially the composers and Tenors. It was interesting that Jon's sister Barbara Thornsbury who drove up from Roanoke, Virginia on behalf of the family on a visit within two weeks of her passing had remarked how beautiful Myriam's hands were.  It was also remarkable how strong her grip on life was all the way until the end.  This photo was taken on Friday December 9, 2016 by Jon of Kristina and her mother.  It was the night before she died.
