She continued to show her vulnerability as she said, ‘Well today I couldn’t hide my hard day. A mother always knows. Without saying a word, she reached in her pocket and pulled out this tissue and just squeezed my hand.’
Clare had previously shared a photo of Lilia kissing her cheek on May 10 as she reminisced about their last visit before quarantine.
‘This was the last time I got to hug my mom before quarantine,’ Crawley wrote.
