Tribute from grandson- “Grandma, you were the toughest person alive. You literally worked at Vesta Corp (25+ years) until your last day. You lived through heart surgery and with Leukemia for 10 years. You didn’t even believe in taking an aspirin. You taught me that through God anything is possible. I can’t be more proud to call you my Busia (Grandma). You gave me confidence because after every basketball game you said “Trevor you just gotta have confidence.” Lastly, you taught me it’s never “goodbye”, it’s only “so long”… So long Busia. Thank you for always being there for us and always praying the rosary for us. We all love you and we can’t wait to see you again.” -xo Trevor
This says it all honey. You will be kept in our hearts and prayers forever.
