Aunt twinnie there is no words to express my feelings to loose a dear aunt like you . But your life speaks for you so that gives me hope and courage to go on, there was never a dull moment with you many nights I would come in your room and you and I would lie in bed and we would talk any and everything then I would say me gone down and she would say galong you have d whole night fi talk to Karren and then she would start laughing and say gwan ya me little big niece and the Lord bless you me a go pray fi you and Shanna now I would say thank you and she would start laughing again and say co me little big niece, sleep on my aunty your memories live on
Winni my friend my sister my mother why did you have to gone so soon. I can remember the wonderful times we shared at you home on Sunday evenings and sometime on holidays. You never tired of our family sharing the evening with your family playing dominoes and other games. Those everlasting meals you cooked and shared and if we don't eat it you will get vex. The beautiful times we shared at church and in various meeting we participate in as well as the choir, will be missed. Your contagious smile will always be remembered. Eileen, Lysandra and I love so much it is hard to say goodbye, we will just say meet you again on that great triumphant morning. I also would also like to say to the family - take courage and never give up hope of seeing their beloved again.
May your soul rest in peace. Love you always.
Mommy words are just not enough to say how much I miss you I can say like the writer indeed it's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday everyday I wish it was just a dream but the closer the date gets the more it becomes a reality that you are gone I wish that I could see you again, the pain that I'm feeling is so unbearable mummy I miss you so so much i cry not because I won't see you again but because you gone too soon I wish I could have alot more years with you I wish I never have to say goodbye I wish you would just wake up from this sleep but I won't question God he knows best , God look around his garden, and found an empty place, He then looked down on the earth and saw your tired face, He put his arms around you lifted you to rest God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best,He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, so he closed your weary eyelids and whispered peace be thine , It broke My heart to lose you but you didn't go alone for part of me went with you the day God call you home, continue to sleep in perfect peace mommy I love you but Jesus loves you best sleep on my mother until we meet again may your soul rest in peace mommy your wash belly love you always.
Mother words can't express how much hurt I'm experiencing right now,but I'm not hurting as if I have no hope because I know your resting in the arms of the Saviour, when you were in the hospital it was a joy for mikey and I to journey up to uwi daily just to get a little squeeze and talk sing and pray with you even when your not responding,sometimes the competition with mikey and myself was stiff he get I squeeze I don't, but we both enjoy every moment,your last words to me the night before you went to hospital was,gwone go sleep me baby me good....I'm happy,the for the many time when I'm leaving you would say bless you my daughter God go with you...you always support your children no matter what,Mikey my son dat eno,Mark best singer not eno,orel no body can't drive like my son eno,vicky best nurse dat eno..karren your black beauty....love you mama miss you.. how could I forget no one In this world can cook rice and peas like my mama,nobody.when every she discipline anyone and finish oooooo would be at the end of her sentence...no play with me Oo.lobe you mama,miss you,sleep in peace Mother...
I have lost a mother and a good friend.
Words cannot expressed my inner feelings towards losing such a beautiful soul. I will always remembered her kind words imparted. She was such a loving person and was always greeted by her beautiful smile. I remembered having dialogue with her prior to her death and she was just saying she is longing to see me and how tired she was. I am still in disbelief even though I know death is inevitable. She had touched so many lives with her deeds of kindness.. She had never ended a conversation without telling me how much she loved me. She will be surely missed in this life. I have such an assurance she is in heaven rejoicing with the angels above. I will always remembered her favourite expression “mi pickney gal. She was a woman of an impeccable character one who had loved the Lord.. Sleep in heavenly peace mom.
I can't find words to explain the feelings I'm having since the God called her home, mummy as I always call her iwas my other mother she is always kind loving and never ceased to make me laugh. whenever I would take too long to call her visit she would always say "dutty bwoy you get rich and switch" and the laugh would come after. I thank you mummy for giving me my favorite cousin of all time Karren Campbell we will continue to cherish your memories. sleep on mum
Although I never got the opportunity to meet in person her warmth and love could be felt through the video and voice chats had with T'Ka and I, and even in those smalls moments a great deal was learned from her.
Her lessons and inspiration will always live on through those she loved and cared for. And even though the world has lost one of its brightest lights, we know God has welcomed one of his strongest children. May you find the peace and rest you truly deserve in Gods light.
My grandma's last words to me via voicenote was, 'I love you a 100,000%', And as usual, she started laughing because she knew how happy it would make me to hear that.
Even though I'm fortunate to hear it over and over again, the joy i once felt is now replaced by sadness and emptiness.
We've always talked about this day coming for either of us and I'd share that I'd prefer it be me, she would always disapprove and remind me that i need to live for the Lord before that happens. I'd go on to tell her that I can't live without her and how i fear the outcome of losing her, she'd burst into laughter and say, 'you naav no sense enu pickney but when the Lord ready fi mi, him ready and me know unu ago bawl but me ago laugh after how ugly unu look when unu a bawl'.
It's been over a month+ that I've been living out one of my many fears,( I bet she's having a laugh of a lifetime). Unlike before (where this fear would consume me), I find comfort in the life my grandma lived and her love for the one and true God.
I've been fortunate enough to share 24 of the 28 years of my life with her and I have memories and her prayers to serve me a lifetime of comfort and strength.
I will carry on her legacy of joy and laughter, no one truly dies as long as they are remembered.
My advice to whosoever is reading this, Hug your love ones, apologize before it's too late, remember the consequences of your actions affect everyone around you and don't forget to commit your life to God.
You did not give birth to me but treated me like you did, There was a time in my life when I needed a mother( mine had migrated) and you filled that gap. You never see me or call me without saying “mi pickney how yuh do?, yuh dash mi weh!, yuh rich and switch” and I would respond and seh ..” mi rich but mi nah switch” my response would make you double over with laughter, even when Karren and I finished laughing you would still continue to laugh until tears running down your cheesk and you end up coughing. When you laugh you make others laugh not because they get the joke but because of your laughter.
You were a kind and thoughtful person. You never hesitate to help where needed. You were my mother and my friend. You were so happy when I told you that I am going to get baptized. Before you went into the hospital you and I had a lengthy conversation. I did not know it was the last time we would have spoken. You never let me leave your presence or end a telephone call without telling me you love me. I am glad I told you that I received the Lord as my Saviour and that I was going to get baptized. I am sad that you will not be here physically to witness it. I will always remember your words to me, when I told you… “ mi pickney, mi happy suh till, a di best decision yuh mek”.
I am crying because I miss you but I know I will see you in the sweet bye and bye. You live a life of service to others and I am sure you are grinning from ear to ear now because you are with your Lord, you also get to see Elma and Angus. Tell them ”England”(as they affectionately called me) say howdy and I will definitely see them too in the sweet bye and bye.
You have fulfilled the purpose the Lord have given you so He call you home to take your rest. Sleep on my dearest, sleep and take your rest, I love you but Jesus loves you best. Your memories will forever be in my heart.
Love you my dear Winni..you are such a sweet soul..iwill truely and dearly miss you..go on an take your rest in the sweet by and by..may your soul rest in piece ..love you..Frankie
