Brianna’s Ofrenda

Born 1995
Great Grandmother

I dedicated my ofrenda to my great grandmother, Josephine Marie Forcelle. I chose to make my ofrenda for her because I had known her my whole life up until she passed away about a year ago. She was a woman of strong faith, encouragement, and love for her family. I loved her very much, and miss her so much. That’s why I put many different holidays in my ofrenda. She would decorate and get the whole family together, especially on Christmas. That was her favorite time of the year, because she always felt close to her family and faith. She didn’t care about presents or anything else when she had her family with her. She was like that until the end. Everything I put into my ofrenda represents the things she liked and that made up her life, of what I knew of her. She has been a very inspirational person in my life and I wish she was still here, but I know that I have everlasting memories of her.

Mi bisabuela

Dediqué mi ofrenda a mi bisabuela, Josephine Marie Forcelle. Decidí hacer mi ofrenda por ella porque yo la conocí  toda mi vida hasta que ella falleció hace un año. Era una mujer fuerte en la fe, ánimo y amor por su familia. Yo la queria y la extraño mucho. Por eso yo puse muchos dias festivos en mi ofrenda. Ella decoraba y juntaba toda la familia, sobre todo en Navidad. Ese era su época favorita del año, porque ella siempre se sentía cerca de su familia y la fe. Ella no se preocupaba por los regalos o cualquier otra cosa cuando tenía a su familia cerca. Ella fue así hasta el final. Todo lo que he puesto en mi ofrenda representa las cosas que le gustaban y que constituía su vida, de lo que yo sabía de ella. Ella ha sido una persona de gran inspiración en mi vida y me gustaría que estuviera aquí, pero sé que tengo recuerdos eternos de ella.

    Josephine was my aunt,but she was like a mother to me and always refered to me as daughter she never had. Your tribute to her, was perfect. She did love family and every holiday, especially Christmas.I miss her in my life also, but I know she is smiling down on us all, and being especially proud of you Brianna. You did much, to make your great grandma happy on this earth. God Bless her memory.
