(PatrioticPost.com)- Last Wednesday, former President Trump and his family attended the memorial service for his first wife Ivana who died on July 14 after falling down the stairs of her Manhattan home.
The former president, his wife Melania, and their 16-year-old son Barron arrived at St. Vincent Ferrer Church on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, waving to supporters gathered outside.
The family flew from Florida to New York to attend Ivana’s funeral earlier in the week.
Ivana died in her Manhattan townhouse at the age of 73. The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Ivana’s death an accident saying that the blunt impact injuries to her torso were consistent with a fall down the stairs.
Shortly after her death, former President Trump announced the news in a post on his Truth Social account, describing his first wife as a “wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman.” Trump said Ivana “led a great and inspirational life” and her children were “her pride and joy.”
Ivanka’s three children, Donald Junior, Ivanka, and Eric released a joint statement on Thursday describing their mother as “an incredible woman,” a “world-class athlete,” and a “caring mother and friend.”
“She fled from communism and embraced this country,” the Trump children said, adding that their mother taught them “about grit and toughness, compassion and determination.”
Barron is Trump and Melania’s only child.
The former First Lady is notoriously protective of her underage son, shielding him from the public eye whenever possible.
Ivana’s memorial service was one of the rare times Barron has been seen in public, so naturally, the Nosy Parker photographers from the tabloids like the UK Daily Mail were out in force to capture pictures of the elusive teenager.
