Singer Chiquis Rivera Choked Back Tears As She Paid Tribute To Her Late Mum Jenni Rivera On Mother's Day In The U.s.
Chiquis remembered her Mexican singer/actress mum on Sunday (10May15), marking the third year without Jenni, after she lost her life in a 2012 plane crash, aged 43.
In a special video for Latina magazine, Chiquis said, "I'd like to not only thank my mother, I feel like I have the best mother in the world and it's unfortunate that sometimes you don't realise that until maybe it's too late. Although I don't think it's ever going to be too late, I think that you're listening to me, mum, everyday.
"You know that I love you with all my heart, but I want to take this moment to say thank you. Thank you so much for all the lessons that you've taught me for giving me so much strength. Your lessons have helped me get through life - it's been very hard without you."
Fighting back tears, Chiquis continued, "Thank you for leaving me my brothers and sisters because without them I wouldn't be able to go on, so thank you. They're the best gift ever. You raised good kids. You're a great mum. I love you very much and I can't wait until i see you in heaven.
"I'm gonna do my best and I hope that I make you proud everyday. Happy Mother's Day, mama."
