It’s with heavy hearts that the GRIP family has lost our beloved friend, cook and family member, Pesa Laulea.

Pesa and Siu Laulea

We have gathered as a community with staff, family, clergy and community members in honor of such an amazing father, hard worker and angel over those with whom he has left behind.

Please read the Richmond Standard coverage of our memorial of love and dedication to our cherished Pesa by clicking the image below.

In honor of our beloved Pesa, GRIP has established the Pesa Laulea  Community Service Fund in honor of Pesa’s giving heart and dedication to serve his community.

Details of the scholarship fund will be organized and shared in future.

We will miss our Pesa!
