According to The New York Post, Eric Trump, Ivana Trump’s youngest son made a speech while inside the Upper East Side church. 

“She had brains; she had beauty,” he reportedly said. “She was the embodiment of the American dream … She was a force of nature.”

As Eric continued, he marveled over her impressive skiing skills while commenting on the mother she was to him and his two siblings, Ivanka and Donald Jr. “She ruled the three of us [kids] with an iron fist but also a heart of gold.”

The Post reported that Barron, Don Jr., and Don Jr.’s oldest child Kai were also in attendance, while photos showed Ivanka was there as well. Kai, Ivana’s granddaughter also said a few words to honor her grandmother.

Barron towered over his family as they watch the pallbearers walk away with her casket. Tiffany, although not a child of Ivana’s, was there to show her support for her siblings.

In her own speech, Ivanka called her mom a trailblazer in the business world and someone who was “tough-as-nails.” “Growing up, my mother didn’t tell me a woman could do anything she wanted to — she showed me,” Ivanka reportedly said, as she held back tears.

“She was a trailblazer by men and women alike. My mother once told me there was nothing she couldn’t do in heels. She taught us how to spearfish and then cook what we caught. My mom expanded our minds.”

Her oldest, Don Jr., shared his sister’s sentiments calling Ivana “fearless and independent,” adding that “She shattered so many norms.”

There were roughly 100 mourners in attendance. 

Those planning the funeral have also asked those in attendance to refrain from purchasing flowers and rather that they donate that money to Big Dog Ranch Rescue, a Florida-based nonprofit organization aiming to minimize dog homelessness.

As Big Dog Ranch Rescue wrote in a statement following Ivana Trump’s passing, they said she “was philanthropically involved with many charities throughout her entire life, but always remained steadfast and passionate in her love for animals.”
