Kristal Rana Gupta
2001-2013 Kristal Rana Gupta, 12, died October 14, 2013, with her family and friends by her side at Albany Medical Center. She was born on March 23, 2001 to Shelly Simpson in Worcester, Mass. She leaves her guardian, Donna Bushika and partner William Burdick as well as Nathaniel Santiago and Kaseem Gupta and many family members from Worcester. Kristal was a very outgoing young lady who loved to sing, dance, read and write. She made a great fashion statement especially when it came to her shoes. She could always make you smile no matter what kind of mood she was in and was loved by so many. Some of her favorite things to do were to eat and sleep and she was very good at both. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 3 p.m. at Harvest Christian Ministries, 945 Main St., Bennington, Vt. If you would like to make a donation please speak with Donna Bushika for more information.
