Tony, please accept my condolences on the passing of Sis Mapp, as I called her when we worshipped and sang in the choir, at the Church of the Holy Comforter in Washington, DC. We shared a love for church music, cooking Caribbean cuisine, and for our God. I remember you bringing her to see me in St. Peter, when I visited Barbados back in 2016 for the 50th Anniversary of Independence. I had a good time singing hymns with her then. While we are sad, and you have had two losses in such a short time, I pray that our God of Love will comfort you and hold you close. We long for the grand reunion that we will have with our loved ones at Christ's return. Until then, may the prayers and love of friends and family comfort you.
Warmest greetings,
Heather L. Griffin
