Our beloved Josephine Resendez & her journey home

Donation protected
Hello! As some of you may know, my name is Bianca and I want to ask for your help, love, compassion, and charity. Let me share my story about two of the strongest, most caring, and most loving women I have ever known. These two women have demonstrated in the most beautiful way what true love can accomplish and how strong family bonds can be and should be. My grandma, Josephine Resendez, is one hundred years old. Living to be one hundred is an amazing milestone but she did not get there alone. My aunt Lisa is my grandma's backbone, her unspoken words, her will to carry on. Unfortunately, it is time for my aunt and my grandma to let go. It is time for my aunt to be the strength and help our grandma peacefully find her way to the good lord’s side. God could not have sent a better angel to help my grandma with her journey.
My aunt and grandma have spent every day of the last eleven years together creating a bond between grandmother and grandchild that will never be broken, no matter the distance, in this world or in heaven. To witness the growth of this relationship is an experience I will not soon forget. To see my aunt, grow stronger because she accepted the mental and physical challenge to care for our grandma who started with the strength to care for herself but grew weaker as the years past. As I grew mentally, I started to understand how nature was changing their roles and turning my aunt into the nurturer. I witnessed how love can give you the strength to push yourself past an unknown limit and create new limits with every new struggle and accepted challenge to make our grandma comfortable and pain-free.
I am asking for donations so that we as a family, friends, and all those who are empathetic and moved by this story can help give Josephine Resendez a peaceful send-off to the lord's house that will free my aunt's mind and heart so that she may grieve with family and friends with the tranquility she deserves to have during these trying times. As the lord takes Josephine home, my aunt will lose not only her grandma, but her best friend, her calling, sense of duty, and as god lets my aunt, his earthly angel, mission end, anything you can help with will allow my aunt recover from the assignment god has given her and allow us all to lay our grandma down to rest and give us and my aunt the strength and understanding that she is in a better place without pain and allow us all to grow and understand just how we should all take care of one another by living the example my aunt has set for us as a family.
Please help with a donation to give our loving grandma the beautiful sendoff she deserves for surviving this harsh world for one hundred years and demonstrate just how beautiful family, friends, and strangers can come together and make the world a more beautiful place with a community that connects over a beautiful life lived and a beautiful life given to another. If you cannot donate, it is understood because we are not all in a place that allows it but your love and prayers along with sharing this story and the cause may reach others so that they may donate and offer love and prayers that are so truly needed and appreciated from all. My aunt will never speak this graciously about herself, but help me show her that her love, humanity, and sacrifices were witnessed from all and her spirit and strength will live on inside the women around her.
