My Dad, Carlos Hernandez Chavez, painted this amazing portrait of my abuela, Teresa.
She died peacefully today in Mexico, surrounded by family. 
It's truly a privilege to be with your loved ones when they take their final breath on this earth.
I'm glad my Dad was able to make the trip to be with her.
My love goes out to my aunts and uncles and those that loved her.

Su padre es un buen artista. What a wonderful portrait and how true, a privilege to be with someone as they leave this life.

Oh my goodness! I've been away so much i'm behind on my blogs but your dad is so wonderfully likable. I'm sure she is reflected in him. xoxo
